Hello Spring!

Mini Eggs How did I know it was spring today? Was it the fact that there were a few little flowers in bloom at Peninsula Park? Or maybe I knew it was spring because I rode my bike and didn’t feel like I needed to Ace bandage my face together because I was worried it would crack and fall off from frostbite. No, I knew it was spring today because I was at Freddy’s and the Cadbury display was up and off the hook.

I’m actually not a milk chocolate person. I love dark, bitter chocolate. I’m also not a candy person — why bother when there’s chocolate to be eaten? But I will gladly chuck both of these preferences when Cadbury Mini Eggs are in season. I love the crack of the candy shell and the smooth, sweet chocolate inside. I totally ignore the resulting sweaters on my teeth and sugar coma after a few of these pastel puppies. Nummy.

I know we all have our favorite Easter candy — many of you are balking that I wouldn’t even touch a regular Cadbury egg. What is that crap in the middle? Barf. As for Peeps, I’ve never actually consumed one. But I have really fun memories of hanging out at my college best friend’s house and watching her pet rat eat the eyes off those bright purple bunnies. We knew how to live.

Happy Spring!

    I buy lots (10)of them right after easter and squirrel them away in the freezer for crazy deliciousness in July. Freaks wife out when it’s August hot outside and I offer up a cadbury egg.

    I can’t do the regular Cadbury eggs, but the mini ones? Oh my god, they’re addictive. I can polish off a bag in no time, which is why I try to wait as long as possible to actually buy one.
