Creme egg: consumers took to Twitter to decry recipe tweak

When Mondelez announced it had tweaked the recipe of Cadbury's Creme Egg earlier this week it faced a social media backlash.

Amid the furore Marketing took to the streets of London to find out whether consumers could actually taste the difference - the verdict? Nobody could.

Some consumers took to social media to decry the recipe change using the hashtag #Cremeegggate and calling on Mondelez to revert back to the original recipe.

Changing the recipe in any well loved brand is a risk but the snacking giant might, however, expect somewhat of a sales boost thanks to all the publicity and hype ahead of Easter, with some suggesting the good timing is an example of carefully handled PR.
