File this Under: Everything Tastes better When Deep Fried, Exhibit 577b: Deep Fried Cadbury Eggs

Deep Fried Cadbury Egg

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.

Oozing fried Cadbury Egg

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.

Fried treats from the ChipShop

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)

Haha, that is SO awesome! If I had a fryer I would totally do this.

Is the twice fried Cherry Pie really banned? Or is that a marketing gimmick?

While researching my marathon story, I stopped by the Bay Ridge location (now closed) to ask about the twice-fried cherry pie. It's a trans fat issue, a staffer told me; the pies had been shipped once-fried from a supplier in England, where they don't have such a restriction. Preparing them from scratch in-house, he added, would be too labor-intensive for Chip Shop prices. Easier to deep-fry a Twinkie.

I didn't know the Chip Shop was doing Cadbury Eggs. I love deep fried Cadbury Eggs! I've deep fried a few for parties in the past (I swear, it's not a regular occurrence) and now I've been re-reminded of their goodness.

Ha ha, great post, I had a look at their menu. It so funny to read about an English chip shop in NYC! Also cider with chips? The classic thing is to have a fish supper with a brew (cup of tea to you) but not that silly Lipton stuff, proper tea, with loads of milk and sugar. Also on the menu it says 'ask your server for additional delicious British sodas' See if they have Irn Bru (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irn_Bru). Its the best.
