I look forward to eating Cadbury's Creme Eggs every Easter. Here in the United States, they are made by The Hershey Company, and they are identical in all but one respect: the American version is smaller!. The US egg is 1.2 ounces, and everywhere else on the planet gets 1.4 ounces. We are cheated out of 15% of delicious fondant happiness.
Not content with making disgusting facsimiles of famous Cadbury products with their own waxy version of chocolate, Hershey's are now cheating us out of the true meaning of Easter, as far as I'm concerned. I consider this to be a personal affront, because the Creme Eggs in their current form (only larger!) first appeared in the year of my birth, 1971. So give us back the .2 ounces you stole from us, Hershey's. Bastards!
Incidentally, if you're in the USA and you want to buy some British Easter Eggs (made with proper chocolate) this year, visit UK Goods and place an order!
