Here Today, Goo Tomorrow

It's New Year, so that can mean only one thing - yes, it will soon be Easter...



I love this new ad by Saatchi and Saatchi, it is art of the highest order. Here we see a box of Cadbury's Creme Eggs sitting in a classroom learning how to be eggs and how to dispense their goo. It's like some kind of sex education class where the boys are twitching under their desks and blushing at the mention of wet dreams; they are quickly out of their desks and off to practice. Goo indeed. And messy sheets.
I like Cadbury's Creme Eggs, but they are technically very difficult to dunk in tea without making a horrible mess in the bottom of the mug. Sometimes I have dissolved whole eggs this way. Do not despair if this happens to you; the goo can be spooned out and is still very tasty - just remember to wear a bib first. And don't do it on the train...

Many thanks for all the kind comments; I am feeling rested, almost fully inflated and much better.

Dunk in tea? Surely they're for consuming whole...

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Auty: Anything is worth a dunk.

BEAST said...

How many can you get in your mouth at once Miss Scarlet.....

Jade of the Jungle said...

I have just emerged from Tescos - they are selling a Christmas variety pack of 6 Cadbury's chocolate bars for SEVENTY THREE PENCE. Yes, SIX chocolate bars for SEVENTY THREE PENCE. I know I've resolved to not eat too much crap this year but it would surely be an act of utter stupidity to not buy a pack...or two....??

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Beastie: I'm still practicing... as they keep bursting, so I have to swallow.

Jade: Come on now, how many packs did you buy? They'll be 50p a pack this time next week...

Just make sure that you don't eat them all at once.

Gorilla Bananas said...

Dunking and spooning is not the way to deal with eggs, Miss Scarlet. Bite, crush and swallow is the jungle way.

Famulus said...

I must confess to being a Mini Egg man. The crispy shells, the smooth chocolate, the bag empty within seconds...

xl said...

Happy that you are on the mend and dunking creme eggs.

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Bananas: I like to lick, suck and savour Mr Bananas...

Fammy: I can imagine Fammy... Bless...

Mr XL: Thank-you Mr XL. I am a very good dunker.

Sx

scarlet-blue said...

Blimey, I'm going to give Mr Bananas the wrong idea. Where are my commas? Goodness me... Apologies Mr Bananas..
Sx

Gorilla Bananas said...

No need to apologise, Miss Scarlet! I feel the same way about you!

Whirlochre said...

One day, the human race will have evolved to the point where Creme Eggs are either deemed to be a disgusting irrelevance, or passed whole and unmelted from mouth to backside in just under 52.253 seconds by relay quartets of enthusiastic athletes at the 3072 Olympics...

Ponita said...

I must agree with Famulus. The mini eggs are the best! And now that they come in dark chocolate too, you have a choice! I sually buy one bag of each at a time.... mmmm!

I find the Creme eggs much too sweet...

Gadjo Dilo said...

I reckon they'd be nice if you baked them in a cake. But I've never tried it.

Donn Coppens said...

Easter already Jeezuz!

Can't we have a few bloody months to ourselves..are we complete slaves to this f*cking Calendaric Oppression?

Why aren't we ruled by the gentle ebb and flow of the Tides or languishing under the crawling Constellations or meandering migrational mandates instead prostrating ourselves to this loathsome ubiquitous commercialism..
for crissakes we just got through crizzmess and I refuse to start kowtowing to the moneychangers in the Temple of Ishtar for two bloody months..
just another bloody holy day that was stolen and reinbloodyvented and marketed by the conquerors of the day...Ishtar BAH!

Oh sorry this was about sex and chocolate..sorry, terribly sorry.

Goo is the root word of Good.
I'll bet that you didn't know that?

CyberPete said...

I still haven't taken down my Christmas stuff.

We have chocolate turtles with a very creamy middle. They are divine. The messy way is biting off the bottom and lick the creamy stuff out of the shell.

Just not in public.

Dave said...

Easter isn't until April 12th.

I don't like Creme Eggs. All that goo in your mouth. Yuck. You can have mine.

Practically Joe said...

Before we get to Easter, we have to make it through St Patty's Day in March.
First the KEGS ... then the EGGS!

scarlet-blue said...

Mr Bananas: I am blushing. It was a slip of the tongue, or to be more precise, a slip of my fingers..

Mr Whirly: Hello and Welcome! What a fab idea.. dunking should also be an Olympic sport. How much chocolate can one cup of tea dissolve?

Ponita: Hello and Welcome! I was lurking at yours yesterday... I will show my face next time.
I think I'm the only person I know who likes the big sweet ones...

Gadj: Bloody hell Gadj! It's got to be done hasn't it? This will be my weekend mission. I'm quite excited; I will post the results. How many eggs shall I use? Half a dozen?

MrCoppens: Give in to it! It's Easter!!! You know it makes sense.
Sex and Chocolate? Now what gave you that idea?

Pete: Be gentle with the bottom biting, take it nice and slow..
Get those decorations down now and install the Easter chicks and bunnies...

Dave: Easter isn't until April 12th
Now don't be a spoil-sport... the eggs are in the shops [though sadly not in Woolworths] so let's go with the flow... if we'll lucky it'll be Summer Solstice by next Friday...

Joe: We'll do St Patty's day tomorrow then. Yes?

Sx

Dave said...

I have no objection to the summer coming as soon as you like. I want to get in my garden and start planting.

KAZ said...

Do it in the nude Scarlet. Save on the washing.

BEAST said...

I have to 'come out' as a creme egg hater.
Far too sweet and claggy . I do however like Easter Egg chocolate

Glamourpuss said...

I'm glad you mention Easter. I went into Sainsburys on January 2nd to be confronted by a shelf of HOT CROSS BUNS!!!!!! What is wrong with the world?!

Puss

Dave said...

Oh yes, hot cross buns were on a bogof in tescos this week (trying to clear stock before Easter is over, I expect). I put some in the freezer, for the appropraite time.

scarlet-blue said...

Dave: Too right Dave, I've had enough of this chilly weather. My garden is a shambles.

Kaz: Extremely kinky. Okay then...

Mr Beastie: I think the tea kinda diffuses the sweetness... try it next time you want to dunk something.

Puss: Goodness me! I thought having eggs for sale was bad enough... if we carry on like this we could do Christmas again in June.

Dave: Very wise too. But we're having another Easter in October...
Mrs P, of course, eats chocolate oranges all year round so it doesn't matter if it's Christmas or Easter. And she dunks in coffee.

Daphne Wayne-Bough said...

Scarlet you are cruel. I've just renounced chocolate. And me living in Belgium too. Chocolate was my sex substitute. What am I going to do now?

(Turns hearing aid up).

scarlet-blue said...

Daphne: There is only one word I can say to you Daphne... and I will say it loudly: GODIVA
There, I've said it...
You are definitely a Godiva lady. Indulge.
Sx

CyberPete said...

I would but yellow and green don't go well with my d├ęcor.

Is the bottom biting why I don't have a boyfriend?

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: You can have the bunnies in any colour you want. Pink would look fetching... Where did the green come from...?
Bottom biting should always be a mutual fetish.
Sx

MJ said...

Watch out for that Ponita.

She's a loose canon.

Mrs Pouncer said...

Scarlet, you are extremely vulgar and silly. I do not eat Chocolate Orange, I eat chocolate-covered cherries, constantly, even in the bath. In fact, particularly in the bath. Actually, only in the bath. And I do not dunk anything, either, unless the c/c/cherries fall INTO the bath, in which case they are infused with Fenjal and therefore easier to digest.
Daphne, there is absolutely no point in renouncing chocolate, particularly if it was your sex-substitute. Eat as much chocolate as you wish, but smoke more cigarettes. One will balance the other; it is truly magical. A very special kind of alchemy. C x

CyberPete said...

Truth be told I'm not really an Easter person. I like the days off work but I'm not so keen on decorating for it.

Green is an Easter colour - at least here it is. We use yellow, green, orange and purple.

I presume the turtles don't like me biting their bottoms?

PI said...

You have to tackle it from the inside with your tongue - the only way - and DEElichous.

scarlet-blue said...

MJ: She has very nice cats though, and loves her Fammy. Probably a good egg then.

Mrs P: Apologies for being vulgar; I could never resist a good dunking. Digestives in orange squash and Refreshers in Lemonade [extra fizz]. I have always been experimental. I will try creme eggs with Radox.
And I agree with the smoking thing; this also works for me...

Pete: We don't really decorate for Easter, but I like an excuse to dress up as a bunny.
Be gentle with the turtles and don't gnash at them, then I'm sure they will be happy.

Pat: To tell the truth, I dunk them in tea to soften them so that I can easily get to the goo. I have quite a small mouth really.

Sx

MJ said...

Are you saying Ponita has a nice pussy?

scarlet-blue said...

MJ: Too be even more honest than honest, half the time I haven't got a clue what I'm saying... I think this might be evident.
Sx

Ponita said...

At first, I thought MJ was saying I was saintly, then I realized she just meant I am ready to blow at any time!

You will have to ask Fammy about my pussy yourself.... although I know he's not fond of cats.

Famulus said...

All I can say is that Ponita's pussy has never scratched me, no matter had rough I play with it...

CyberPete said...

The vintage Playboy bunny look is very Italian Vogue. I like it.

eroswings said...

Hey, I luv those eggs, too! Except I don't dunk 'em, I just eat them! All you have to do is lick it just right and it'll become moist and tender and start to release it's delicious, full flavor! Mmmmm.

Hope you're feeling better!

Dave said...

No. I still don't like them. Can we move on, please?

What are your feelings about teacakes?

scarlet-blue said...

Ponita: I think MJ was inferring that you can be a reckless young filly. A compliment indeed.
Perhaps it's best that the musings of your pussy stay between you and Fammy.

Fammy: See above. But I'd advise less rough play; my first-aid qualification in loose bandaging probably won't be much help to you if there is a mishap.

Pete: Bendy ears and a bob tail is a free entrance ticket to all of the good places. Even Starbucks.

Mr Swings: Hello and welcome! At last a supporter! And obviously a connoisseur of all things chocolate eggy.

Dave: Teacakes? Are you saying that you dunk buttered teacakes? I really don't think this is a good idea because the butter will form an oily slick on the surface of the tea... not a good look...

Sx

Dave said...

Good lord! What an appalling image. Teacakes should be firm and crisp (albeit dripping with melted butter).

CyberPete said...

I will have to remember that next time I have to go to the bank

scarlet-blue said...

Dave: I know, dunking teacakes, muffins and crumpets is not a pleasant idea...

Pete: My Bank Manager loves me. His name is Warren.

Sx

CyberPete said...

That is such a trustworthy name isn't it? Warren, he sounds like a lovely old man with who won't try to fish kiss you.

Why does he love you? Is it the bunny costume or the fact that you like goo?

Ponita said...

Scarlet, I am a nurse, so my first aid skills are highly developed.

I have, on occasion, added a chocolate truffle to my mug of hot chocolate to make it even chocolatey-er.... somehow I don't think that is a proper word.

Ponita said...

Oh... and I am not reckless.... just enthusiastic. ;-)

Dave said...

Pete: I think his full name is Mr Rabbit Warren.

S-B: Bendy ears and a bob tail will certainly get you free entrance into my home.

scarlet-blue said...

Pete: Apologies, I was making an exceptionally silly joke. I should be slapped. Though I'm sure my Bank Mananger would love me if he ever met me.

Ponita: I shall keep you on call! I am accident prone.
You will also be on call for extra chocolate and for keeping Fammy in check.

Dave: I shall burrow my way over to yours and help with the digging....

Sx

Famulus said...

Who the hell said that I was in check??? I wasn't even aware that we were playing chess!!

And I've never seen the plain chocy min-eggs.

I think that I need to keep my profile a little higher here. People seem to be talking about me more than to me. Never a good sign...

I think I would enter my up coming weekend into the most perfect prospective weekend competition except for the total lack of any Cadury product in the vacinity.

Damn.

Donn Coppens said...

All we hear is
Radio ga ga
Radio goo goo

Famulus said...

Oh and what has Mrs P done with her Word Verification? It's got some fancy popup that I can't get through from this 'ere PC. I'll have to wait until I get home before I initiate communication once more with that good woman...

Oh, yes, I was also going to say that I am a Bite The Pointy End Off and Empty With Tongue Before Crushing Shell With Teeth person...

scarlet-blue said...

Fammy: Dog-Tooth or Prince of Wales?

Mr Coppens: No, if we carry on like this I'll be on to Radio Poo-Poo... and this post has been quite silly enough.

Sx

Eryl Shields said...

I always love the first creme egg of the year and then rather go off them. I'll try dunking though, it sounds like it could be the answer.

scarlet-blue said...

Eryl: Creme Egg dunking is a lovely, mucky, messy pursuit... just don't get caught.
Sx

EmmaK said...

I don't really like Cadbury Creme Eggs they are way too sweet. And trying to dunk one would definately leave me with egg on my face. That ad is so sweet though!

scarlet-blue said...

Emma: It's the best ad on TV at the minute... there are no ads other than for furniture sales - DFS, Dreamland etc... I am at a loss.
Sx

Famulus said...

I have to confess Scarls, that I have no idea what you are on about. Might this be a UK TV related question?

MJ said...

Fammy's been away too long.

scarlet-blue said...

Fammy: Let me wipe your fevered brow, Ponita seems to have vanished...
I was contnuing your word game: Check... as in check-mate; as in checked cloth...

MJ: Give me strength MJ, give me strength...

Sx

scarlet-blue said...

Mrs Pouncer said...

62 comments, Scarls, and every one an absolute ...erm.... gem.

Famulus said...

MJ: Glad you noticed Mistress. :-)

Scarls: Ah. I thought that they were other methods of eating the eggs. I was befuddled.

scarlet-blue said...

Mrs P: Yep, and a lot of flipping scrolling up and down...

Fammy: See - now I've got to scroll all the way down to see what you said... then all the way back...
I was off topic by then, Fammy. What was the flipping topic...?

SXXX

Going for a fag break...

Famulus said...

Scarls: Now you tell me that there is a topic...

I was just assuming that this was a general Cadbury appreciation chat...

I must bring back lots on my next visit...

scarlet-blue said...

Fammy: Topic is made by Mars.
Come on, move swiftly.. we're looking at cod-pieces now....

Scarls xxx

Famulus said...

I've never had a cod-piece. Do you think that I should get one?

No Good Boyo said...

There's only one way to enjoy a chocolate cream egg, and that's as a suppository.

scarlet-blue said...

Fammy: Are you not well-endowed then?
Are you just doing this to me to keep me scrolling up and down????

Mr Boyo: I imagine your suggestion as a film... I should be ashamed.

Sx

having my cake said...

There is nothing good about Cadburys Creme Eggs. Lindor Chocolate Ball Eggs rule!

Famulus said...

Scarls: I am exceptionally please to be able to announce that I might, just might, be better endowed than your average Dutchman.

I don't want to leap to any unwarranted conclusions, but I do have a little evidence that I am at least as well hung as Mr Average...

However, I still don't own a codpiece.

But the scroll wheel on my mouse is holding out well.

scarlet-blue said...

Cakes: And Mars bars...?

Fammy: Christ, I've forgotten what you said now...

Sx

scarlet-blue said...

Fammy: MJ and I would like some proof... you just wait...
Sx

Famulus said...

Oh the lewd and disgusting things that I could say here... And this is just the sort of crowd that would love to hear it, but I am above all that. That is to say that I like being on top... Damn. I just can't stop myself.

So, what was it you wanted again Scarls? Oh, proof. Make an appointment with my Head Concubine and I'll see if I can fit you in... Boom boom! ;-)

scarlet-blue said...

Fammy: I'm going to slap you in a minute if you keep making me scroll... oh... :o)
Sx
