Cadbury Popping Mini Eggs

Cadbury Popping Mini EggsAmber, a dear reader from Toronto, came to Los Angeles over Easter weekend and was kind enough to run around to three stores before leaving Canada in search of a list o’ candies from the Great White North. Her timing couldn’t have been better for this one, the Cadbury Popping Mini Eggs which are pretty much what the name implies.

They’re Cadbury Mini Eggs (a creamy milk chocolate egg with a crunchy shell) with a little bit of carbonated candy thrown in.

They look just like their non-bubbly counterparts, except they don’t have the little speckles on them. They come in all the standard eraser colors: white, yellow, pink and turquoise.

Cadbury Popping Mini Eggs

I have to say that the bag is teensy and contains a rather small amount: 32 grams (1.13 ounces). The standard Canadian single serve bags are 39 grams. I guess instead of charging more for that special ingredient they just give you less.

Where the Pop Rocks Chocolate Bar had an odd texture because of the addition of Pop Rocks, these don’t have that jarring granularity, because we’re already accustomed to the crunchy bits of the shell.

After chewing a few times the chocolate melts away, it’s sweet, creamy and a little malty ... then the popping starts. It’s not a lot of popping, not as much as the Pop Rocks bar, but still a nice experience.

The regular packaging is purple, this is yellow, so it’s hard to mistake one for the other on the shelves. And once you pop it in your mouth, well, it’s the same sort of shocking difference.

I thought these were a bit of a novelty item, but I like it. I wouldn’t want to have a huge 11 ounce bag of them, but a little handful brought a smile to my face.

  1. I’m pretty sure the popping ones came from Wal-mart… though, basically everywhere that sold the mini eggs had the popping ones this year.

    Glad you enjoyed them smile

  3. i definitely agree.

    i had a friend of mine from canada send me a bag last easter, since i really wanted to try them.
    (i bought 50 big bags of regular mini eggs after easter on sale. yumm)

    but, anyway. they’re nice to have exist but i don’t think i prefer them. they’re just -okay-.
    it’s good that they put it in only small bags.

  5. I love popping candy on everything.  I was on cloud nine when Lunchables started packaging flavorless pop rocks to pour on your little pizzas about a year ago.  Unfortunately they stopped doing that.

  6. I DOOO love my Cadbury eggs-Not too sure about the popping routine. Easter is hardly over and the candy is gone!!! I had a hard time finding the Robin Colored eggs this year, but always worth the effort when you find Them!!!

  7. While listening to the radio this morning (KFMB 760), I heard a Cadbury’s advertisement for Easter candy.  It stated that Easter was not just about some dead guy, but it was for the Cadbury chocolate eggs.
    I am very offended that Cadbury would degrade Jesus Christ as they did !!!
    The word “Cadbury” has become and always will be a negative word to me, my family, and neighbors.
    We will no longer be buying anything with the name “Cadbury” attached to it.

    Sincerely Larry, and Serethia Green.

  10. Every Easter we look forward to the Cadbury Pop-Rock Mini Eggs, I am so addicted to them. This year, unfortunately, I cannot find them anywhere. It is a huge easter egg hunt with very disappointing results. Could someone please tell me why they stopped selling these amazing liitle candies or let me know where I can find them? Please, please, please help?

  11. Please bring back the pop rock eggs.
    You started a tradition with many families and then
    you discontinue.
    Come on
    Make Canadian Easter fun again
