Cadbury’s new white chocolate version of its famous Creme Egg has caused quite a stir online with people pointing out one disgusting potential issue.
Cadbury in the UK launched the new white eggs this month but the catch is they are disguised in the same wrapping as the original ones.
The idea is a Willy Wonka style challenge to find a white egg, which if you’re lucky could even net you up to £2,000 (almost $3,500)
Sadly they are for now only available in the UK in convenience stores (such as local newsagents and corner shops) and in Sainsbury’s Local, Tesco Express and Co-op up until April 1.

But while many were excited about the announcement and the challenge, some Twitter folk have been quick to point on a potential issue.
And it’s pretty disgusting.
Individual eggs are easily unwrapped, so what’s to stop anyone, even the shopkeepers themselves, from checking under the wrapper for a white egg.
And the odds on buying one that hasn't been unwrapped to see if it's a white choc one or not and therefore, touched by someone else first? 😱— Haidee O'Donnell (@haidee_odonnell) January 3, 2018
This is a horrifying thought.— Mikey Smith (@mikeysmith) January 3, 2018
The white Creme Egg thing is a great idea for a product that isn’t easy to unwrap and rewrap.
Chances are, if you buy a Creme Egg this year, it’s already been opened. How much do you trust your shopkeeper? https://t.co/U3XgIf4hP3
Best stick to the multi packs. 😀— Rowena Kay (@rowena_kay) January 3, 2018
Regardless the race is on, with some already lucky enough to have found one.
