We conduct a marathon taste test of the dizzying array of Peep variations and line extensions and, if you listen closely, you can actually hear the moment when the sugar coma hits.

Candy Talk, Episode 5: Cadbury Creme Eggs

For some, Cadbury Creme Eggs are the quintessential Easter-themed candy. For at least one Candy Talk host, they’re among the best confections one can buy, regardless of season. On this episode, the Candy Talk crew delve the British roots of Creme Eggs, compare American eggs to their cousins from across the pond, and explore the inevitable brand extensions brought on by its popularity. We were unable to confirm or deny, however, that Creme Eggs come from rabbits.
