Cadbury Creme Egg season has officially launched, and their white chocolate egg is back.
The chance of finding a white Cadbury Creme Egg is slim, but you’ll win up to £10,000 if you do!
You’re not able to walk into any old shop and buy a white Cadbury Creme Egg.
The white Cadbury Creme Eggs are hidden in supermarkets around the UK.
While the idea of getting some chocolate may be exciting enough, if you happen to come across one, you could win prizes ranging from £50 up to £10,000!
I’m starting to feel a bit like Charlie Bucket hunting for a golden ticket!
Eeew – haven’t they been touched?
In 2018, cash-hungry eggs hunters weren’t playing very fairly, which may well have put people off from trying again this year.
There were loads of reports of people unwrapping the eggs while still in store, trying to hunt down a white egg.
Now, this is unhygienic, and is just a waste of perfectly good eggs!
How to find a white egg without unwrapping it
The milk chocolate and white chocolate creme eggs come in the same packaging, making it hard to spot one from the other.
It’s all about what’s on the outside of the egg.
If you look at the packaging, there’s an obvious telltale sign – the ingredients.
Very simply put, the white chocolate egg has “white” in the ingredients list.
Metro made the discovery last year.
You have until January 9th to find one and be in with a chance of winning £2000. Happy hunting! 🥚🐣 pic.twitter.com/cYCAyZOVcv

What do you do if you find a white egg?
If you’ve managed to find a white Cadbury Creme Egg then, firstly, well done!
Now, try everything in your power to NOT eat it!!
There is nothing in their terms and conditions that says you can’t eat it.
Inside the foil, there will be a voucher with a phone number. You need to call them during office hours to claim your cash prize.
You need to make sure to keep the voucher and the packaging as they need it to validate your claim. You will also need to tell them which store you bought it from and where it’s based.
All prize claims must be received by 21st May 2019 so if you have a load of eggs stashed away for later in the year, it may be worth catching a glimpse under the foil sooner rather than later!
I was considering writing more about Creme Eggs….but…..I’ve just got to nip to the shops 😉
