I like the Cadbury Bunny. I like how he clucks like a chicken. I like how he has other Cadbury Bunny friends that also cluck like chickens. I do not like his eggs. Ever since I was a wee Brownie I've wanted to like Cadbury Creme Egg. The wrapper, so colorful. The eggs, so compelling. Come on who wouldn't want to love a chocolate egg filled with creamy sugary goo made to look like egg white and egg yolk? But alas, try as I might, I've always found Cadbury Eggs to be too sweet, until I tried one fried...
Lawman and I had a lovely dinner out with friends at the ChipShop this Saturday night. After a Blackthorne Cider, an order of Wild Mushroom Mac & Cheese, and an order of fish and chips, we were pretty darn full, but when I heard about the Eastertime off menu deep fried Cadbury Egg, I knew I could find room and I'm glad I did.
Be sure to eat these while their hot and the middles are nice and melty. Digging in with my fork the egg oozed out much of it's goo. I found that after some of the middle escaped I was left with just the right ratio of chocolate, fried bits and "creme" filling. Delicious.
I support the ChipShop's desire to fry just about anything. Got an idea for something Chris should fry? Drop him a line. Personally, I'm sad that the twice fried cherry pies have been banned. Sniffle.
You might check out ChipShop in Park Slope on weekday afternoons from noon-4:00pm for their recession special fish, chips and a green salad or any shepherd's pie or macaroni and cheese dish with peas and a green salad for $7. If you work in the city you can still catch a good deal with their Monday through Thursday 20% dinner deal from 4:30pm until 6:30 pm. With the money you save you can spring for a deep fried Cadbury Egg ($3.50)
