What's going on in the world of pronunciations right now?
First Elton John can't seem to say Ed Sheeran's name properly, and now we're concerned we've been getting Creme Eggs wrong all these years.
People were thoroughly confused earlier this week when the official Cadbury's Twitter account replied to a question about how to pronounce Creme Eggs, and seemed to suggest that it's meant to be 'crem' (to rhyme with 'them').
After one mighty debate online, it turns out all this fuss was caused by a simple typo.
Yes, it's actually pronounced 'cream' after all.
Looks like we missed out the ‘a’ there! Most definitely pronounced as ‘Cream’ egg!— Cadbury UK (@CadburyUK) February 20, 2018
As you were!
