Here's how I feel about the "Cadbury Creme Egg" frappuccino...

Cadbury Creme Eggs are my absolute favorite candy ever. Not just my favorite Easter candy, but my favorite candy in general. If you put a pot luck of assorted candies in front of me, I'm going for the Cadbury Creme Eggs every time.

When I saw the recipe for a "Cadbury Creme Egg" Frappuccino on the Starbucks "Secret Menu" I had to try one.

As you probably know, the Starbucks "Secret Menu" isn't an actual Starbucks thing, it's just a list of recipes people come up with and share so others can enjoy them too.

Here's the Cadbury Creme Egg recipe:

Order a Java Chip Frappuccino.

Add Frappuccino Roast. 1 pump for tall, 2 for grande, 3 for venti.

Add Vanilla Syrup. 1 pump tall, 1.5 pumps grande, 2 for venti.

Add Caramel Syrup. 1/2 pump tall or grande, 1 pump for venti.

Add Vanilla Bean Powder. 2 scoops tall, 3 scoops grande, 4 scoops for venti.

This is what it looks like.

So was it good? Did it actually taste like a Cadbury Creme Egg?

It was extremely rich and sweet with chunks of chocolate and a hint of caramel. It was delicious.

But it didn't taste like a Cadbury Creme Egg at all. I think if you really want a Cadbury Creme Egg frappuccino you're going to have to bring a few of them to the barista and ask him/her to blend them in for you. That actually doesn't sound like such a bad idea!

Let's talk calories, because honestly I felt a little gross after I drank it and I started wondering how many Cadbury Creme Eggs could I have eaten instead.

1 Cadbury Creme Egg has 150 calories, 5 grams of fat and 25 grams of carbs.

1 Grande Java Chip Frappuccino has 470 calories, 18 grams of fat, and 72 grams of carbs... and that doesn't include all of the extra pumps and scoops of junk I added!

I could have eaten 3, if not 4, real Cadbury Creme Eggs for the amount of calories and fat I put into my body by drinking this concoction.

THE VERDICT: Have an actual Cadbury Creme Egg (or 2) instead!
