The goo is actually a soft fondant. It is supposed to mimic the yolk and egg white of a real egg, which is why it is colored both white and yellow.
Cadbury claims its Creme Egg is its signature snack. “Cadbury Creme Egg is the most popular and over 500 million creme eggs are made each year, around two-thirds of which are consumed in the UK,” the site says.
