Pic: Cadbury Ireland’s blue cheese and chocolate Easter egg is surely an early April Fools’ joke, right?
At least we assume it’s an early April Fools’ joke. It has to be, right?
It doesn’t matter how wary you are of the date in the calendar, there’s every chance you’re going to drop your guard tomorrow and be fooled into believing something absolutely ridiculous on the one day of the year where it’s completely acceptable (it’s acceptable most days if we’re honest) to embarrass a friend or a colleague by telling porky pies.
Cadbury Ireland decided to get a head start by releasing a sneak preview of an Easter Egg combining chocolate and blue cheese which they claim they are launching in time for this Easter, which is suspicious enough considering that a lot of shops have been stocked with a wide range of Easter Eggs pretty much since the beginning of Lent and even before it started in some cases.
As chocolate & cheese go so well together, this year we're launching a new #BlueCheeseCadburyEasterEgg! Egg-cited?? pic.twitter.com/xqXIRKc6r1

Considering that Tayto actually launched a cheese and onion flavoured chocolate bar last year, it’s not the most outrageous idea there’s ever been and who knows, maybe Cadbury are planning on releasing the Easter Egg that might sound great to lovers of chocolate and blue cheese everywhere, but would probably be pretty awful-tasting in reality. It certainly got people pretty egg-cited on the Twitter machine this evening in any case.
@CadburyIreland Mmmmm #BlueCheeseCadburyEasterEgg

We strongly doubt it, however, but it was a worthy effort all the same.
Well played Cadbury Ireland.
