It tingles in all the best ways!
“Ha! Really?” was my initial thought when I saw this on the shelf.
I’ve never been that impressed by any of the Creme Egg variants on sale here in Australia in the past. The Oreo one was good, but was nothing more than an impulse purchase for me. If I was walking past some on sale, I might pick one up on the way to the cash register at the supermarket, but I would never go out of my way – even if that meant making a special trip down an aisle.
So, my expectations were pretty low when it came to the Wizz Fizz Creme Egg. But, I actually really enjoyed this.
Annoyingly, the Wizz Fizz Creme Egg still comes in those awful silver wrappers and not the more solid plastic egg container that the Oreo Creme Eggs came in.
I presume the silver wrappers are better for the environment?
I wasn’t sure what to expect entirely once I bit into the egg. Would it be a powder, like from a packet of Wizz Fizz? And if so, where was the trademark Wizz Fizz sherbet shovel?
But it isn’t a powder at all. Instead, the experience was more like eating one of those sherbet cones that I vaguely remember from years gone by (do they still sell those anywhere?).
It was delicious to bite into it. Who knew that what Wizz Fizz was missing all these years was to be covered in a thin layer of chocolate?
One of the annoying things about a Creme Egg is how quickly the experience of eating one takes. Just a few bites, and they’re gone. That was still the case here, but in addition to the lovely taste of it still dancing around my mouth, I also had a Pop Rocks-style tingling sensation in my mouth that lasted another minute or two.
I don’t know whose idea this was – Cadbury or the Australian company who make Wizz Fizz, Fyna Foods, but whoever thought of the pairing initially deserves a raise.
The Wizz-Fizz Creme Eggs will most certainly have me going out of my way to find them next time I’m at the shops. They rule!
