This Easter Cadbury’s Creme Eggs will be deep fried at Simpsons Fish & Chips in Cheltenham.

From 27 March visitors to the award-winning chip shop can sample the confectionery creation for £1. Half of all proceeds will go to local charity Wiggly Worm.

Co-founder James Ritchie, of Simpsons Fish & Chips, said: “We love being experimental at Simpsons and especially enjoy taking a seasonal classic and putting our spin on it. It’s quite an art creating the treat and perfect timing is key – frying the batter so it’s deliciously crispy and lightly warming the egg but ensuring it stays firm. Trust us, they really are yummy!”

The confectionery treat comprises of an authentic Cadbury’s Creme 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. In the restaurant, the Creme Egg will be served in an egg cup!

The Cadbury Brothers introduced the original filled eggs in 1923 and the Creme Egg’s in its current form that we know and love today were launched in 1971. In the UK, Creme Eggs are the best- selling confectionery item between New Year’s Day and Easter in excess of 200 million with annual sales in excess of 200 million items.

The Simpsons Fried Creme Egg costs £1 and can be enjoyed in the restaurant or as a take away dessert. It is available now until the end of the Easter holidays.

Simpsons Fish and Chips, in Priors Road, is a renowned pioneer in the fish and chip shop industry. In January 2015, they were named the Best Independent Takeaway Fish & Chip Shop in England at the National Fish & Chip Awards.
