It’s no yolk – Simpson’s Fish and Chip Shop in Cheltenham are bringing back the much-loved deep fried Cadbury’s Crème Egg this Easter. The family-run chippy will be donating all profits to the British Hen Welfare Trust, the largest hen rescue charity in the UK.
From 24th March until 17th April visitors to the award-winning chip shop on Priors Road can sample the confectionary creation for £2.
Co-founder James Ritchie, of Simpsons Fish & Chips, said: “Following on from the success of last year, we thought why not do it again and help raise money for another worthy cause. As well as rehoming over half a million hens in just six years, The British Hen Welfare Trust actively promotes British free-range farmers, which is something we fully endorse.
Putting our own twist on the classic Crème Egg was great fun and we learnt last year that timing is key - frying the batter so it’s deliciously crispy and lightly warming the egg but ensuring it stays firm. We’ve got it cracked though so if you’re tired of a battered sausage, come and try a battered Crème Egg.”
The confectionery treat comprises of an authentic Cadbury’s Crème Egg – a thick milk chocolate shell housing a white and yellow fondant filling made from egg, thick white cream and sugar - which is lightly battered in the Simpsons signature batter and deep fried until warm and gooey.
The Simpsons Fried Crème Egg can be enjoyed in the restaurant or as a take away dessert. It is available from 24th March until Easter Monday.
Simpsons Fish and Chips is a renowned pioneer in the fish and chip shop industry. In January 2016, they were named the Best Independent Takeaway Fish & Chip Shop in England at the National Fish & Chip Awards.
