It’s no secret that chocolate is full of sugar but sometimes it takes seeing that sugar in a new light to hammer home just quite how much you’re consuming.
Many people expressed disbelief that one Creme Egg could actually contain the amount of sugar pictured.
A Creme Egg’s ingredients are sugar – milk – glucose syrup – cocoa butter – invert sugar syrup – dried whey (from milk) – cocoa mass – vegetable fats (palm – shea) – emulsifier (E442) – dried egg white – flavourings and colour (paprika extract).
Sugar is by far the main ingredient – especially when you take into account glucose syrup and invert sugar syrup too.
Each Cadbury Creme Egg contains 26 grams of sugar – which is about six teaspoons.
