The new treats feature a milk-chocolate center like the traditional candies, but the difference really shows on the outside. They’re coated with a crisp “shimmer sugar shell,” a Cadbury representative told The Daily Meal in an email.

Even though Easter’s not until April, shoppers are starting to stumble upon the shimmer eggs in stores nationwide.

“The Cadbury Shimmer Eggs are beginning to hit store shelves with Easter product and will continue to grow in distribution as Easter candy and items become more prevalent,” the Cadbury representative said.

They’re sold in 1.4 oz. bags, which sell for about 99 cents, and 9 oz. bags, priced at $3.29. The shimmery shells are in a variety of colors, which appear to include a sunny yellow, rose pink, light purple and a light greenish-blue.
