The Cadbury Creme Scotch Egg is coated with a thick cocoa-kissed batter, then coated in cookie crumbs and deep-fried. When eaten warm, the taste calls to mind that of a deep-fried candy bars that one can find at state fairs, but in my opinion, a slightly more complex flavor owing to the cocoa in the batter and the vanilla cookies. Speaking of the crumbs, they also give the treat a pleasing crunch, which acts as a pleasant texture contrast to the cakey batter and soft, gooey chocolate and sugar-filled interior.
