“Cadbury Creme Egg is a national institution, with over 100 million eaten every year in the UK, and will be a beacon brand on the biscuit aisle.

“This is the latest example of Burton’s focusing on genuine category-boosting innovation, building on a highly successful track record of launching major confectionery brands into biscuits.

“We expect demand to be extremely high for a limited edition product that will introduce a sensational new eating experience to sweet biscuits.”

The brand will be backed by in-store point of sale material, including gondola ends and shelf barkers.

Launched in 2010, initially with three variants, the £10 million Cadbury Special Occasions Biscuits range which Cadbury Creme Egg joins was the fastest-selling NPD launch ever in the UK’s £2 billion biscuit category.

Consumer demand for the range remains high, with growth of flagship Cadbury Dairy Milk Biscuits up 35%.
