I received an email about a graphic I created and shared on Facebook and Twitter a few weeks ago. Now, I don’t recall pinning this, and I couldn’t find it on any of my Pinterest Boards, but that’s not to say it wasn’t pinned by someone else. Perhaps whomever pinned it mistakenly put it on a board full of serious Easter recipes, which mine is clearly not (or so I thought).
Here’s the email:
Dear “Domestic Diva,”
I came across your pin for Mom’s Crème de Cadbury Drink recently, and I was very excited to give it a try. I am a huge Cadbury Egg fan, but I was so disappointed with your recipe!! First I’d like to point out if all of your ingredients are going into a blender you do not need to separate the cream from the candy eggs. I didn’t think of this right away and I spent the better part of an hour making a double batch and scooping the cream from nearly four dozen candy eggs! DUH! I’d also like to say that the little extras that you don’t actually add like the self-loathing and guilt, just take away from your recipe. You don’t need those in there! After actually tasting it with and without a straw, it was way too sweet and too thick. I was left wondering if your little extras weren’t code for something else. Were they?
This recipe was way, way, way off, and before I left this comment on the pin I thought I would first let you know why.

Now, take a look at the graphic and tell me if I was leading this poor, Cabury-loving Michigan Pinner on:
I seriously thought this was one of my friends messing with me, but after some searching on the info provided with the email, this appears to be a legit complaint.
I guess I’ll be more conscientious with my graphics from now on…or maybe I’ll have to start publishing them with a warning label.
I know you will be honest…is it just me? Or is the Cadbury Drink recipe obviously not meant to be taken seriously? Sure, who doesn’t want to drink Easter candy turned alcoholic beverage, but come on?
Leave me a comment and let me know! Or if you were the one who sent this to get my granny panties all in a bunch, let me know so I can return the favor 🙂
