Buying a Creme Egg this year could win you £5,000

We know, we know, Christmas is barely over and already the supermarket shelves are groaning with chocolate eggs and hot cross buns. But while we’d welcome the opportunity to treat ourselves to some of Easter’s finest goods all year round regardless, this year in particular marks a particular milestone for the iconic Cadbury Creme Egg that’s definitely worth celebrating – its 50th birthday.

Yes, we’ve now been tucking into the gooey fondant-filled chocolate delights for an impressive half a century, since their original launch back in 1971, and there are now more than 200 million Creme Eggs sold in the UK alone every year.

So to mark the momentous occasion, as part of an event fittingly dubbed ‘The Golden Goobilee’, Cadbury is releasing limited edition Golden Creme Eggs in stores across the UK – and if you find one, you could win up to £5,000. Now if that’s not an excuse to stock up early, we don’t know what is.

Creme Eggs are available in stores from Boxing Day, and are set to stay on the shelves until 4th, which is when Easter Sunday falls this year. To be in with a chance of bagging yourself a golden egg, all you have to do is buy one and unwrap it to see if there’s a glint of gold beneath the surface.

What to do if you find a gold Cadbury Creme Egg

  • Step 1. Unwrap a Creme Egg to see if you have a golden egg.
  • Step 2. Call the number on the voucher inside the foil
  • Step 3. Follow the phone guidance and keep both the packaging and voucher to claim your prize

However, if you’re not lucky enough to find a limited edition gold Cadbury Creme Egg, you still get to enjoy your regular Creme Egg, making it a win-win scenario in our books. Let the Golden Goobilee celebrations begin!
