Someone tried to shock the internet with the sugar content of Creme Eggs – 17 sweet reactions
It’s almost Easter, which means you’re never more than six feet from a Creme Egg. But it turns out you’re also never more than six and a half spoonfuls of sugar from a Creme Egg – as demonstrated in this video.
This is horrifying!
Guess how much sugar is in one Cadbury’s Easter Creme Egg?
Answer: more sugar than is recommended for kids of most ages for a whole day!

The clip, originally shared by Michael I Goran, PhD, caught the eye of sarcastic Twitter, and the reactions were hilarious.
Really grateful for that video because until today I thought a creme egg was a vegetable

Shocking news about Creme Eggs because I always thought they were made of mashed kale, spring water, and the wholesome spirit of a virtuous organic farmer.

To be fair, Cadburys should make it much more clear that the Creme Egg is not a real egg at all, but merely a cunningly-designed confection that looks exactly like a real hen's egg in every respect.

This video is really upsetting. I can't believe someone would spoon out all that sugar onto a table and waste it instead of cover their creme egg in it like a frosty extra topping. https://t.co/bDK6tS4Iqo
