But thanks to some eagle-eyed fans, thereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a surprising way to hunt down the sought-after egg without having to eat your way through the shelves.
All you have to do is check the nutritional information on the wrapper, as itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a legal requirement to list all ingredients on a food or drink product in the UK.
Yes, it really is that simple.
On regular Creme Eggs, the words Ã¢â‚¬Å“milk chocolateÃ¢â‚¬Â come first in the ingredients run-down followed by Ã¢â‚¬Å“milk solids, vegetable fats and cocoa butterÃ¢â‚¬Â.
Whereas a white egg should list Ã¢â‚¬Å“white chocolateÃ¢â‚¬Â instead.
In fact, CadburyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s almost gave the game away as the company announced: Ã¢â‚¬Å“All white Cadbury Creme Eggs, while wrapped in the same iconic packaging as the classic Creme Egg, will contain nutritional information that is specific to the white chocolate variant.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Last year, CadburyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s released just 371 white chocolate Creme Eggs across the country with a top prize worth Ã‚Â£2,000 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ although nobody ever found it.
This year, the chocolate giant has upped the stakes by dishing out a grand total of 783 white chocolate eggs to supermarkets including Tesco, SainsburyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s, Morrisons and Asda.
There are eight white Creme Eggs worth Ã‚Â£10,000 up for grabs with other cash prizes ofÃ‚Â Ã‚Â£50, Ã‚Â£100 and Ã‚Â£1,000 also on offer.
If you hit the jackpot, youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll need to call the phone number printed on the voucher inside the chocolateÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s foil wrapping. The competitionÃ‚Â ends on April 21, 2019.
Race you to the supermarketÃ¢â‚¬Â¦
