Egg 'n' Spoon is another recent choco egg creation. The package includes purple spoons to scoop out the mousse filling from each egg. Research and development for this product at Bournville was supported by testing and analysis at Reading University.
New products are vitally important to the growth of Cadbury and its parent company: "In 2012, sales of products developed in the previous three years accounted for 12% of Mondelez Europe's revenue and 13% for the company worldwide," according to an executive. Variations of popular Cadbury products are contributing to growth by appealing to new customers and also encouraging loyal brand fans to try different Cadbury items.
Cadbury is, of course, highly social, with more than 500,000 Facebook likes and 198,000 Twitter followers.
