A lad has said he feels like an “idiot” after admitting that he accidentally ate a rare Creme Egg that’s worth £10,000.
According to a report in the Mirror, not actually realising how important the sweet treat was, the international student studying in the UK – who anonymously shared his shame in a post on Reddit – said he only discovered the potential value of the half white chocolate, half milk chocolate egg after he had polished the whole thing off and thrown the tinfoil wrapper in the bin.
The 21-year-old said this was officially the “lowest point” in his life.
“I am an international student studying in the UK, and so I don’t really keep up with the ads here,” the student said.
“A few months ago, Cadbury released 146 prize-winning eggs across the country with the chance of winning a range of cash prizes including £10,000 (which is half my university tuition), and long story short, I was scrolling through Instagram today, and saw the prize-winning egg that looked identical to the one I ate a couple of hours ago.
“It then dawned on me – I potentially ate £10,000, [and] I don’t actually know what else to say other than utter defeat.
“I think I have officially hit the lowest point in the short 21 years of my life.”
In case you’re not sure what the unfortunate student is referring to, back in January, legendary confectionary brand Cadbury hid 146 “rare” Creme Eggs that are half white chocolate and half milk chocolate, with the classic Creme Egg filling inside, in shops and supermarkets across the country as part of the ‘How Do You Not Eat Yours’ competition.
Only six Creme Eggs of the 146 hidden by Cadbury are actually worth £10,000 and these can be found in supermarket retailers such as Asda, Co-op, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, and Morrisons.
Then there are also three eggs worth £5,000, which can be found in Waitrose, One Stop, and Booker, four eggs worth £1,000 hidden in Boots and Iceland stores, and then finally, there are another 12 eggs worth £500, which can be found hidden in Poundland stores across the UK.
The remaining hidden eggs will then get you £50 each.
The competition will run until 17 March, with prize winners claiming their winnings by 17 June, and you can find out more here.

Timothée Chalamet thinks the sexiest British accent is… Hull?
Hollywood A-lister Timothée Chalamet has revealed the British accents he finds sexiest, and the results are unexpected.
The 27-year-old star of Wonka said that a Hull accent is up there as one of his favourites, along with Italian and French.
How does Timothée Chalamet even know about Hull’s existence, never mind know what the accent sounds like?
The star, who rose to astronomical fame back in 2017 with his portrayal of Elio in Call Me By Your Name, and has since starred in blockbusters such as Dune and Little Woman, revealed his favourite access on the current Wonka press tour, The Hoot reports.
Chalamet appeared on LadBible TV talking to Keegan-Michael Key, where they discuss the internet’s biggest debates.
In a segment where they debate the British accent, Chalamet goes on to reveal his top three British accents… and the answers are not what you would expect.
Firstly he admits his favourite is the Hull accent, he says: “I like the Hull accent. Hull is sexy”.
We’ve never thought of the Hull accent as particularly sexy before, but we will absolutely take it.
He then goes onto say: “I like Hull, Essex is my top three, and I like a middle-aged Yorkshire accent.”
We’re not sure the difference between a Yorkshire and a middle-aged Yorkshire accent, but what Timothée wants then Timothée will get.
In the comments, one person said: “I’m from Hull and nobody in Hull likes the Hull accent lol.”
Another joked: “suddenly i have the hull accent.”
And someone else wrote: “good day to have a hull accent.”
So thank you Timmy, we’d have to say that we wholeheartedly agree and that our accent is in fact, the sexiest of them all.
Next time we’d like to see you attempt a Yorkshire accent on the big screen, because we’re sure you’d absolutely smash it.
Sir David Jason set for TV return in Only Fools and Horses documentary Christmas special
In a surprise bit of festive news, the only and only Sir David Jason is returning for an Only Fools and Horses Christmas special this December. Lovely jubbly!
The best-loved and most-watched British comedy of all time will be back on our screens in documentary form this festive season, with Del Boy himself David Jason revisiting the iconic comedy character after 20 years he last played him on screen.
While the legendary sitcom was broadcast on BBC back in the day, the highly-anticipated Only Fools doc will be airing on Channel 5 right before Christmas as a special one-off programme.
Looking back on the show’s incredible run on UK screens over seven series and the several ‘Christmas Cracker’ specials, specifically, the latest Only Fools and Horses documentary will see Jason and a number of other guests appearing to chat about the legendary show.
While it’s still unclear how many of the original cast will be appearing, Jason’s on-screen wife Tessa Peake-Jones (Raquel) is confirmed to be appearing along with other special guests including newscaster Krishnan Guru-Murthy and Bendiorm‘s Sherrie Hewson.
Sadly, a full theatrical reunion just isn’t on the cards following the deaths of Roger Lloyd Pack (Trigger), Kenneth MacDonald (Mike the Landlord) and Buster Merryfield (Uncle Albert) in the 30 years since the show ended its run.
Only Fools writer John Sullivan also sadly passed away aged 64 in 2011 and fellow co-star Nicholas Lyndhurst, a.k.a. Rodney Trotter, told Metro: “We can’t. John is no longer with us. John was the driving force of the show and we have also lost quite a few cast members now.
“I don’t think I could do it without them and I certainly couldn’t do it without John. At the risk of depressing everyone, I think the last two times I’ve seen David has been at funerals.”
Simply entitled, ‘The Story Of Only Fools And Horses At Christmas’, the 90-minute special is yet to have its broadcast date fully confirmed but you best keep your eyes peeled on the TV guide — we’ll let you know as soon we do.
Jason, 81, has only just recovered from hip surgery earlier this year, so it’ll be nice to see his familiar grin back on our screens.
Right, we’re off to binge a whole series on UK Gold.
