Do Cadbury’s Creme Eggs make Using An iPad Gooey?

It’s with thanks to the charming Chris, The Story Reading Ape, that my question about Cadbury’s Creme Eggs and iPads is something I have to ask.

Earlier this week, Chris alerted his readers to a rather funky Online Plot Generator. I simply had to give it a go and, hey presto, my latest short story was born.

Two Hungry Uncles Bopping to the Beat

A Short Story
by Hugh W Roberts


David Robertson looked at the gooey iPad in his hands and felt excited.

He walked over to the window and reflected on his outrageous surroundings. He had always loved sweet Blogsville with its courageous, colorful coffee shop. It was a place that encouraged his tendency to feel excited.

Then he saw something in the distance, or rather someone. It was the figure of Jamie Osborne. Jamie was a kind writer with ruddy teeth and strong toenails.

David gulped. He glanced at his own reflection. He was an honest, hot-blooded, port and lemon drinker with fit legs and clean shaven navel. His friends saw him as a broken, broad bear. Once, he had even revived a dying, blogger.

But not even an honest person who had once revived a dying blogger was prepared for what Jamie had in store today.

The clouds danced like thinking rabbits, making David ecstatic.

As David stepped outside and Jamie came closer, he could see the thirsty glint in his eye.

Jamie gazed with the affection of 7430 adorable large lambs. He said in hushed tones, “I love you and I want Love.”

David looked back, even more ecstatic and still fingering the gooey iPad. “Jamie, I want a Cadbury’s Creme Egg,” he replied.

They looked at each other with calm feelings, like two creepy cold chickens drinking at a very virtuous Easter party, which had pop music playing in the background and two hungry uncles bopping to the beat.

David admired Jamie’s ruddy teeth and strong toenails. “I feel the same way!” revealed David with a delighted grin.

Jamie looked relaxed, his emotions blushing like a combative, colossal camera.

Then Jamie came inside for a nice drink of port and lemon.

Thank you, Chris, for helping me create what I can only describe as something I would have never in a million years thought I’d be capable of writing.

But, what can I do with my new short story?  Maybe add it to my upcoming short story collection? If you’re an author and looking for somebody to create custom-made virtual 3-D book promo displays that can be posted on your blog/websites or can be included in your posts/online articles, then look no further than Chris. Just take a look at some of his work.

Chris does lots of other work for authors and is a huge supporter when it comes to promoting bloggers, writers, authors and their books. Head on over and take a look around his blog.

Now, not forgetting the question I asked about Cadbury’s Creme Eggs making iPads gooey, then my guess is it’s down to how you interpret the word gooey?

  1. Lol, I tried the Plot Generator, too. At least you had a dying blogger (I ended up with ‘a kindhearted eggshell’ lying in a drain). Thanks Hugh, it might not get you a Man Booker Prize but it gave me a good laugh.

  2. I’ll have to admit I’ve never tried Cadbury’s creme eggs (I find all their chocolate too sweet) and after reading your story I don’t dare to try the plot generator. I might never come back to my work! Love Chris’s work!

  3. What an imagination you have, and great with that prompt! Not a fan of the creme eggs, too sweet, but those peanut butter ones are yummy! When I ever get working on my ebook, I’ll be checking out Chris for my cover 🙂 Shared this post, BTW!

  4. You may not have thought of this great story without the generator, but nonetheless Hugh, it’s written in true Hugh style. Oh, and the best way to keep those chocolate eggs from melting? Pop them in your mouth pronto! 🙂 xoxo

  5. Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
    If you are stuck for a theme for your short story then you might like to try the online plot generator. Hugh Roberts has done so with hilarious results.. brilliantly put together with eye-catching and eye-watering lines such as ‘He was an honest, hot-blooded, port and lemon drinker with fit legs and clean shaven navel’ Sounds like fun.. head over and read more….

  6. LOL. Hugh, that is an outrageously outstanding story. Kudos. (Regardless I still like Cadbury creme eggs… 😉 )
    You already know I’m a fan of Chris Graham’s work, but those mugs are especially nice.

  7. You need to bring some of those eggs to the Blogger Bash, never had some! Wonderful how you recognise Chris for his work and for supporting other bloggers. What I saw by now is really good!

    1. So you don’t get these little gems in Austria then, Ericka? I’ll bring some along for you, but I can’t promise you’ll get them 😄

      Yes, Chris is certainly the man to go to for book-covers and other promo stuff for your books. He’s a wizard when it comes to producing great promotional stuff.

      1. At least I never discovered them. Hope dies the least…. perhaps I an grab one 😀
        That is really great what he does! I am already working on two new book projects… I will keep this in mind. 😊

    1. Oh, no worries, Diana. That just leaves more Cadbury’s Creme Eggs for me. They always disappear after Easter until just after Christmas, so I’ll have to stock up.
      Glad you liked my new short story. Never ever produced a story quite like that before. 😄

  8. Weird and wonderful story. Those images are…wild! Cadbury’s cream eggs never took off in this household. All five children pronounced the whole idea disgusting and have never been induced to even taste one. I’ve had to eat them all.

        1. Yes, although sometimes it’s only eight. None-the-less, as soon as they appear on Boxing Day, some of us still have a cupboard full of chocolate to eat and still go out and buy creme eggs. I must be Cadbury’s dream customer.

  9. Sweet ! Truly, sweet. And the iPad sticky issue…not a problem. Cadbury eggs are a phenomenon, followed closely here by Reese’s peanut butter eggs. Both are worthy of messing up a computer. ☺

    1. Oh, I love peanut butter cups, Van. We can’t get them in the UK, but I always bring lots back with me when visiting the States. And they come as an Easter Egg? Oh wow.

      “Dear Easter Bunny, I’ve been a good boy this year. Please, can I have a Peanut Butter Easter Egg…and lots of them!”

  10. I love a Cadbury’s Cream Egg, Hugh. What a great story, I tried to write a song with that generator, it is so funny. I am thrilled with the cover that Chris designed for me, and I love your blogger’s Bash mugs!

    1. So do I Judy, especially melted in the microwave and then some ice cream added to them 😇 No calories at all, of course.

      Chris did a brilliant job with the cover for your book. I love it. He’s a very talented man.

  11. Ohhhh Cadburys cream eggs….I dream about them…here they put something in the recipe to stop it melting so if it says international recipe ….I steer clear…Villa mart have the real deal…do I want to pay for that…still debating 😉

    1. I wonder what it is they add to stop them melting, Carol? I’ll be honest and tell you that I quite like melting them in a microwave and then adding a dollop of ice cream to them. Don’t talk about the waistline. 😄

      1. This is Cadbury’s statement:Normal chocolate begins melting at 93F (34C), but in a patent application the Cadbury’s scientists describe a method for dramatically improving its resistance to heat.

        It involves a change in the “conching step” of chocolate production where ingredients including cocoa butter, vegetable oils, milk and sugar are ground down in a container filled with metal balls.

        By adapting the technique the scientists are able to reduce the sugar into smaller particles meaning they are covered with less fat, which makes the bar less prone to melting.

        Tony Bilsborough, head of corporate affairs at Kraft Foods, said there were “no plans” to use the new recipe in Britain where temperatures are rarely high enough to damage chocolate, adding: “This simply would not sell”.

        “To be honest I don’t think any chocoholics would welcome this recipe because it would not taste as good as Dairy Milk,” he said.
        Well that sounds scrummy and waistline ( who said )that word? lol I will have to do mine in a bain marie as I don’t use a microwave…long story …Enjoy your Creme Eggs 😉
