Best Easter Candy Ever

Solid Chocolate Bunny

Don’t cheese out and get the hollow version! Only the solid will do! Nothing beats gnawing away on a bunny. Sorry.

Chocolate Marshmallow Egg

What could be better than the combo of chocolate and fluffy marshmallow?

Robin’s Eggs

Different than Whoppers, these have a candy shell. And are dee-lish!

Jelly Beans (old skool)

No Jelly Bellys here. I’m talking classic pectin jelly beans, the kind where black is licorice-flavored. My favorite, so pass all those unwanted black jelly beans my way.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs

Hmmm, perhaps only the combination of chocolate and peanut butter could outdo the chocolate and marshmallow one. It’s close.

Cadbury Mini Eggs

Now, you will note I did not say Cadbury Creme Eggs, which are a gloopy, gloppy, hyper-sugary invention of the Devil. Stick with the minis, I beg you!

Anything that See’s Candy Makes for Easter

Mayhap you are located in a geographic area where you cannot easily obtain See’s Candies. I feel very, very sorry for you.

P.S. And yes, there are NO PEEPS on this list either! That is not a mistake! They are simply packing material with sugar added.

    Sacrilege! Cadbury Creme Eggs are what we wait all year for, with their deliciously goopy centers. And I understand that not everyone has a refined enough palate for Peeps, but packing material? You go to far!

    I’m all about the robin eggs, personally. I completely agree with finding a solid bunny too, though this year I didn’t buy any bunnies! Went looking for the Cadberry mini’s and apparently our Target didn’t get any. LOSERS

    Peeps! Although I have to say, I do not like to eat them myself, but they come in the most fantastic colors! I bought 4 boxes. They look cute in the basket.

    I LOVE Cadbury Creme Eggs (though the spelling drives me NUTS) and the Caramilk caramel-filled ones are pretty boss, too. But the mini eggs rule my world entirely.

    Peeps are not packing material; they are actually pretty good insulation as well.

    We have a local candymaker Niagara Chocolates who make the best foil wrapped chocolate eggs. And their peanut butter egg outstrips the Reese’s one by a large margin.

    I loathe runny eggs and consequently can’t even bear to look at the Cadbury ones. I suppose if I were to be blindfolded and fed them it might be different, but then that’s a different conversation…
    Love the black jelly beans though

    Black jelly beans are my favorite too.

    Hollow bunnies are just a tease. And never make the mistake of buying the giant hollow eggs that say that they are filled with candy. Inside, you have a teeny, tiny, sad-looking little celophane package of candy, and a whole lotta air.

    Wunderbar eggs are kickass — love those. And chocolate marshmallow eggs are definitely a good time. Lindor eggs by Lindt are also incredibly good.

    And the best part? On Monday, all this stuff will be half price at Walgreen’s. I love capitalism.

    Cadbury Mini-Eggs are like drugs to me. I love those things. But I can only eat Peeps if they’ve gotten stale.

    Peeps Research: what to do with Peeps if you don’t like to eat them. Check out the NASA Peep-o-Nauts on the Literature Search page.

    Don’t count on the sales. In Vancouver at least, all the retailers pack it up and ship it off to liquidators in small towns come the next morning. You’ll never see it again unless you’re in a tiny cow town months later.

    Raincoaster, that is just wrong. My sympathies.
