Which Are Better? Cadbury Mini Eggs Or Hershey’s Eggies

Cadbury Mini Eggs and Hershey's Eggies

Cadbury Mini Eggs and Hershey’s Eggies

It’s Easter Sunday and as far as religious holidays honouring zombies go, our favourite part is the chocolate.

Specifically, the many variations of miniature chocolate egg candies we buy in bulk and then crush about a dozen at a time. But what kind to crush?

This year we wanted to resolve a pressing chocolate egg-related debate: Which are better, Cadbury Mini Eggs or Hershey’s Eggies?

So Sarah and I got a bag of each and had ourselves a competitive taste test. Here are the results:

Savor Test

The classic slow melt delayed gratification effect. Sarah and I each took one egg and let it melt in our mouths.

Hershey’s Eggies
S: It tastes like passing grade chocolate and nostalgia. 3/5
A: This was not impactful. 3/5

Cadbury Mini Eggs
S: Even though I swear this was the exact same as the last one it tasted better. 3.5/5
A: This had a slightly metallic start, but had a rich finish. 3.2/5


The bigwigs in Big Candy don’t just engineer their products for taste. They also engineer them for things like texture, mouth feel and even the sonic qualities of the “crunch” when you bite into them. We wrapped all these traits into something we called the “crunchability” score.

Hershey’s Eggies
S: It did the job. I don’t enjoy crunching these so I don’t care. 3/5
A: When you actually pay attention these create a surprisingly loud, pop rock-y sensation in your mouth. 3.3/5

Cadbury Mini Eggs
S: This one was more satisfying. 4/5
A: Nearly identical in feel and volume to the Eggies, this one dissolved on the tongue a little more delicately. 3.2/5

Cluster Smash

Here we jammed three chocolate eggs at a time into our mouths in a freestyle taste test jam.

Hershey’s Eggies
S: I never put more than one in my mouth at a time so this is nonsense. There’s too much in my mouth… this is an empty experience. 2.7/5
A: This was the first time I actually got a “chocolate” taste kick from the Eggies. 3.5/5

Cadbury Mini Eggs
S: These fit in my mouth better. 3.2/5
A: You can detect a nearly caramel tone when you put more in your mouth. Also, you can definitely taste a richer chocolate. 3.5/5


Hershey’s Eggies
S: 8.7/15
A: 9.8/15
Total 18.5/30

Cadbury Mini Eggs
S: 10.7/15
A: 9.9/15
Total 20.6/30

And the winner is…

    Yeah, sorry to burst your bubble, but those Cadbury MiniEggs are NOT made of chocolate. It’s horrible, brown, oil-based crap.

    Here’s the heart/deal breaker..Mini Eggs contain palm oil and Eggies do not. Deforestation for the production of palm oil is the one and only reason why orangutans are critically endangered.

    its too bad you havent developed mature taste as if you ask the majority of humans hershey has superior chocolate to cadbury buds but im assuming by the categories used to score, this was a high school assignment that was posted online you will grow up eventually and so too will your pallet, for the rest of the world if you have yet to try the hersheys eggies its your loss and know your missing out on a FAR superior product
