E is for Eclairs (the ones from Cadbury)

Cadbury Eclairs (now called Choclairs in India - though I prefer the older name still!) were definitely a treasured treat as a child. We loved those classmates of ours that brought Eclairs to pass out on their birthdays to the class and hoped each birthday celebrated in class meant more Eclairs for us!!  My luggage back from my annual summer trips to India now always saves some space for Cadbury Eclairs and though we do bring other loved chocolates/candies too, guess what disappears first?? The Eclairs of course! I am glad the local Indian stores also carry these for those often appearing sudden cravings for Eclairs :)

Q to the reader: What was your favorite candy/chocolate as a child? Let me know in the comments!

Signing off on the letter E as I continue on the #AtoZChallenge and #UltimateBloggingChallenge  


  1. I actually have a horror story associated with those eclairs and it's kind of ruined them for me because whenever I have them I remember it!

    My younger brother and I went to the cinema when he was about seven and he picked the eclairs as his sweet for the film. Minutes before the film started he made a funny noise like 'oh' and I looked round at him, he'd got something in his hand so I held out mind to see what it was. And he put the sticky, slobbery eclair he'd just bitten into onto my outstretched hand, complete with his loose tooth sticking out the top of it!

    It was so sticky it had pulled out his wobbly tooth!

    And then the lights went out and I was sat in a dark cinema with a sticky sweet (and tooth) in my hand!

    As for my favourite sweets, it was always aniseed balls.

    1. I love aniseed balls. Always did as a kid, and as a grown up.

  2. I frequently ask the question, "What is your favorate dessert?" at networking events. Eclairs are the most offen mentioned. Of course, ice cream does take 1st place.

  3. How do I not know about these?! Must Google!

  4. I've never heard of these! I'll have to search them out.

  5. If my darling husband (who was from Hyderabad Deccan in the south) was still alive, I could ask him about these. Sadly, he has been gone for quite a few years. I don't think I have ever been fortunate enough to enjoy them, although we have a wide variety of Cadburys products here in Australia.


Love to hear from you! I do read all your comments and do reply whenever I can.. but I will definitely hop on over to visit you...
