Cadbury: Our Eggs Aren't Smaller, You Are Bigger

Actor B.J. Novak from The Office appeared on Late Night with Conan O’Brien bearing proof that Cadbury eggs have recently shrunk. In tow were two Cadbury eggs; the egg from yesteryear was clearly larger than the egg currently on shelves.

Wikipedia claims the eggs have shrunk by 12.3% (citation needed, fellas.) A pack of four eggs weighed 155 grams in 2005, but only weighs 136 grams this year.

Cadbury’s FAQ has contained the same cheeky question since 2003, though it seems especially relevant this year.

Why has the size of the egg changed?
It hasn’t – you’ve just grown up!
