This sneaky hack could get you in the running to win £2k!
Angry customers have been contacting Cadbury to complain that CremeEggs had already been opened in-store when they went in to buy some.
Candy company Cadbury chose to find out by announcing a special-edition whitechocolate version of the beloved Cadbury Creme Egg in the United Kingdom -that comes with a prize of up to £2,000.
With a reported prize of up to $3,500 on offer, the competition has already come under fire following reports some less-than-hygienic customers and shop workers are surreptitiously unwrapping scores of eggs to try and find them.
The revelation comes after one Twitter user spotted a bunch of creme eggs in his local Sainsbury's that appeared to have been wrapped and unwrapped again by employees on the hunt for the prize.
And if you've gone to that trouble, you may as well just look inside to see whether it's a white or a milk chocolate egg.
Globes: Meyers tears into Hollywood sex scandal in monologue
The tone he set has stayed ever since - opening with a cutting monologue about Hollywood, often mocking numerous stars present. The proposed red carpet blackout has dominated headlines about the Golden Globes since it was announced late previous year .
Independent retailers - 13 white eggs worth £1,000 and 78 worth £100.
So you'll be interested to hear that there is, in fact, a stealthy way of telling whether you've got a white chocolate Creme Egg from the outside, too.
Egg lovers will have to hunt out the white eggs as they will be camouflaged in the same packaging as a classic one.
The packaging of a Creme Egg is a foil wrapper, neatly folded around the egg.
There are believed to be 371 winning Creme Eggs on the shelves across the country.
They could be hidden inside single wrapped eggs, which cost around 58p, or in five packs which cost £2.85. Co-op also has 90 more winning eggs which will let lucky shoppers take home £200. One egg worth £1,000 will be released somewhere in mainland United Kingdom each week, over 13 weeks.
