A FEW THINGS ABOUT... Cadbury Creme Eggs

Creme Eggs are produced by Cadbury UK in the United Kingdom and by Cadbury Adams in Canada.

They are sold by Mondel─ôz International in all markets except the US, where the Hershey Company has the local marketing rights. At the Bournville factory in Birmingham, in the UK, they are manufactured at a rate of 1.5 million per day.

The Creme Egg was also previously manufactured in New Zealand but, since 2009, they are imported from the UK.

How they are made:

So if you thought all that gooey fondant was injected into Cadbury's chocolate Easter eggs - think again. Turns out the white-and-yellow filling is in fact, placed inside two halves of the egg, which are sandwiched together to make a whole (check out the video below).

A FEW THINGS ABOUT... Daylight Saving Time (DST)

Not everyone agrees with DST. Here are some experts' tips on making the transition easier:

  • Move your clock forward early, say 8 or 9 p.m. then go to bed at your normal time. You're giving up an hour during the day but will stay on schedule sleep wise.
  • Skip the snooze button. Keeping a good routine when going to bed and waking is key to an easier transition. One day a year of change isn't enough to mess up your schedule as long as it isn't routine.
  • Get plenty of sunlight once you are awake. Daylight is a cue to your internal clock to stop producing melatonin, the hormone that makes you feel sleepy.
  • If you're sensitive to the time change, don't overschedule yourself the first few days. Doing too much can make those feelings of fatigue even worse.
  • Be extra careful on the road. The darker part of the day now falls in the morning hours and people may be tired. It's a good time to play it extra safe on the roads.
