Mini Eggs

Cadbury Mini Eggs

Cadbury Mini Eggs are a milk chocolate product produced by Cadbury UK and Cadbury Adams (in Canada). Introduced by the Cadbury company in 1967, they are sold specifically during the Easter season. The egg is solid milk chocolate encased in a thin coating of hard candy "shell", molded to resemble a miniature egg.

Mini Eggs were previously produced in the Keynsham plant in Somerset, UK; however as of February 2010, production has moved to Cadbury's new plant in (Bielany Wroclawskie) Poland. These products no longer state a country of origin on the label, instead stating "Made in the EU under licence from Cadbury UK Ltd".[1]

Product specification


Over the years, Cadbury has introduced a number of variations related to the original Mini Eggs, including:

  • Dark Mini Eggs (dark chocolate)
  • Popping Mini Eggs ("pops" when melted in mouth)
  • Micro Mini Eggs (even smaller variation of Mini Eggs) (introduced in 2007)

Cadbury Mini Eggs are made in four colours of shell. The original colours were white, yellow, pink, and light blue. In Canada in 2010, the colours were switched to yellow, pink, green, and turquoise. In the UK they are now white, yellow, pink and purple with speckles.
