They were available (and therefore presumably manufactured) in India in the 1960s.

I suspect that it goes way back.

IIRC, Cadbury had a 'model village' for its workers called Bourneville.

@ Dan. creme eggs seemed to be bigger back then too.
& I love French Fancies, they always seem to be on offer in my local supermarkets.

@Fing Fang. I take tomato flavour Snaps to work with me most nights and I love Caramacs....not sure why they dropped the big versions.

I agree creme eggs seem to be smaller now. Are they also seasonal now, they seem to be more common around Easter.
Lord, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Take a proper fruit cake or a nice Christmas pud. They will have a better impact than lollies.

Creme eggs were originally season, as in Easter Eggs, but Cadbury responded to demand to supply them all year. That has changed again? It would surprise me if the demand has dropped!

No room for a fruit cake I did get one bought for me last year in Kolkata, but couldn't bring it back with me, no room, probably due to 'all' the meds the doctor gave me for a bout of sickness & diarrhea
