Hypothesis: Cadbury Mini Eggs bought in the UK will be superior in taste, texture and smell to their lowly American counterparts.
Experiment: Taste testing done with one bag of UK purchased Cadbury Mini Eggs and one bag bought from Wal Mart in Georgia. Participants will taste both varieties without bias and compare the exterior shell, overall crunch, taste, creaminess factor and aroma upon opening bag.
Observation/Data Collection: Through extensive sampling, participants were able to note the following:
-While the main ingredient in American bags is sugar, in English bags the main ingredient is milk
-UK shells are thinner and have a less sweet taste
-Color variations are evident. English bags lack blue and instead have a purple egg variety.
-UK mini eggs have a freckled appearance rather than a solid color shell
-US mini eggs are definitely sweeter and creamier. The UK version has a stronger cocoa taste.
Conclusion: They are both freaking delicious. Participants struggled to avoid consuming both bags in mere minutes. Further testing may be required. American version was sweeter and more like candy than chocolate, but in no way inferior to the English version.
Are you a mini egg fan? ARE YOU HUMAN?
Yes to both. Such a fan. My grandma sent the English variety so we had to do an extensive taste test to compare both versions.
Do you have any traditional Easter candies, meals or desserts you plan on making this weekend?
We will definitely make Easter nests (shredded wheat, chocolate and mini eggs) like we have done the last few years. Other than that - nothing in particular!
P.S. I do still run, by the way. When I'm not too busy eating chocolate. Last night was 6.5 miles on the TM. Tonight I'm going for 8. Wish me luck.
