Fans outraged after Cadbury changes recipe for creme eggs

If you're a fan of Cadbury Creme Eggs then you are most likely one of those people that can't wait for Easter to come around. Not for the Peeps (although they are yummy) but for the tastiness that is the chocolate eggs filled with white and yellow creme deliciousness. Well, you may be a bit disappointed this year.

“According to Mashable, Cadbury is facing criticism from egg eaters for not using Dairy Milk chocolate this year. Dairy Milk has been used in Cadbury products and is known for its creamy taste and smoothness. Sadly, Cadbury’s owners tell The Sun newspaper:

"It's no longer Dairy Milk. It's similar, but not exactly Dairy Milk. We tested the new one with consumers. It was found to be the best one for the Creme Egg, which is why we've used it this year."

Needless to say, Cadbury fans are not happy. They unleashed their discontent on the company's UK Facebook page, calling the new chocolate 'cheap tasting' and vowing to never buy the eggs again. Multi-pack quantities are also an issue for some, since Cadbury decided to sell the eggs in packs of 5 rather than as a 6-pack.
