Cadbury Clears Up How To Correctly Say 'Creme Egg'
Not to alarm you, but Cadbury caused public outcry on Wednesday over Creme Eggs.
Don't worry, there isn't going to be a mass shortage of them right before Easter, as it was actually all to do with how you should be pronouncing the name of the egg-cellent chocolatey goodies.
One chocoholic put the all important question forward to the brand on Twitter, writing: "Are you meant to pronounce creme egg as CREAM or CREM??????"
To which the Cadbury's official account replied: "Crem."
Naturally, the revelation caused uproar, with the public and celebrities alike being sent into a meltdown over the realisation that we've all been saying it wrong this entire time.
Apparently Creme Egg is pronounced CREM egg wtaf

Sorry, @CadburyUK are trying to tell us that the British Creme Egg is pronounced "Crem"?! Well here's another British-ism for you; "on your bike mate".

And then, only to add to the carnage, the brand went back on its word, claiming it's pronounced 'creme' as in 'cream', as they'd actually made a typo.
Make your bloody mind up, guys!

The brand's Twitter account is now full of heartfelt apologies to customers who were left shook up by the false pronunciation tweet.
