Forget Jäger Bombs, there’s a new way you should be slurping down Jägermeister. With Easter just around the corner, Jägermeister Creme Eggs are our latest chocolate obsession.
No longer are we confined to dropping a shot Jägermeister into Red Bull, although we’re not stopping you from doing that. Creme Egg season is relatively brief in the UK, giving chocoholics a small window to unwrap those foil beauties and gobble their fondant fillings. It makes sense that Jägermeister wants to cash in on this seasonal trend.
A couple of years ago, there was an April Fool’s joke about Jäger eggs, but now, it’s really come true. Shared by the official Jägermeister UK Twitter, these eggs are here just in time for Easter. Available from the Jäger UK shop, the egg pack has already sold out.

When they are in stock, the egg pack cost £9.99 and contains two Jäger Eggs, two Jäger shot glasses, and a 10cl bottle of the brown stuff. Considering the eggs are made with actual Jägermeister (3% ABV), you have to be at least 18 to buy.
Tim Hawley, Innovation Controller at Jägermeister UK said, “The last three years we’ve been inundated with customers demanding the#JagerEgg, we’ve had everything from desperate DM’s to pleading phone calls. It’s personally kept me up at night thinking about all those people tossing and turning, dreaming of the#JagerEgg that never was – so this is for them.”
Jägermeister Creme Eggs come after Creme Egg rum made its way into our lives. The brainchild of Sweet Little Drinks, Creme Egg rum liqueur is available now for £21.99. The site’s description explains how the liqueur is “based on the classic childhood sweet we all know and love”.
Sweet Little Drinks says “the experience is luxurious and perfectly balanced”, suggesting that you drink it over ice or as an addition to your favourite cocktail. At 18%, it’s not the same as full ABV rum, but remember that we’re here to promote sensible drinking.
If you fancy a Jägermeister Creme Egg, the big question now is “how do you eat yours?” I like the idea of a Jägermeister Creme Egg, but does it really compare to a chocolate Benedict Cumberbunny?
