NEW to me: Just got some white chocolate M&Ms exclusively at Target for the Easter Season. I like them a lot. I first tried one of their "White Chocolate" M&Ms (the White Chocolate Peppermint version) at Christmas -- also exclusively at Target.
I also tried for the first time a White Chocolate Reese's Peanut Butter Egg -- again, good stuff.
I also tried a "Mary Sue" Pecan Nougat Egg -- the nuts and nougat were very fresh! These are better than even the original Stuckey's Pecan Log.
Bunny Mix Peanut M&Ms
Brach's Fiesta Malted Milk Eggs -- still MIA ;-(.
THE VERY BEST "EGGS" -- ZITNER's Double Coconut Egg and their "Butter Krak" egg. (PS after Easter, they go on sale ½ price!) http://www.pageneralstore.com/categor...
You can freeze them.
Bought but not tried yet: Cadbury's White Chocolate Eggs.
Brach's Fiesta Malted Milk Eggs -- seen at Harris Teeter this season.
Have looked at other than Target for the White Reese's Eggs -- haven't seen them.
The Cadbury White Chocolate Eggs are really good.
Tried the Russell Stover brownie truffle egg and it was meh.
Love the Russell Stover carrot cake egg but I can't find anymore of them.
Old faves are the Easter candy corn but haven't found any and waiting for jelly beans to go on sale since I never eat many of them.
Tried and true: Cadbury Crème Eggs, Reese's PB Eggs, Peeps
New: Giant bunny from Lake Champlain Chocolates (bust the budget on this one), big eggs from chocomize.com
New this year at Target is Angie's Confetti Cake Popcorn.. it was incredible. I might have to get some again--it was so good that I would hands-down rather have that than any candies.
white reese's eggs are sold out at my target. darn!
brach's fiesta eggs are now MIA at harris teeter.
lesson learned: when you see it, buy it.
Nothing new here, just the tried and true; two favorites: first, the Cadbury Mini Eggs; milk chocolate in a fabulously crunchy shell. I consider them the Uber-M$M; second, the Russell Stover Marshmallow Eggs, coated in milk chocolate.
I'll buy as many reasonably-priced bags of the mini eggs as I can while they're available and enjoy them slowly over the season. The marshmallow eggs are just a rite of Spring; if I have one or two, I'm satisfied. I don't even care for the rest of Russell Stover's candy line, just those eggs. Must be a throwback to childhood thing.
Prefer the Yellow Peeps Only - best to slit the package open on one side to expose Peeps to air. Ready to consume in 10 days when yellow has gotten crusty. Marshmallow stays soft (well as soft as Peep marshmallow ever is.)
PS: All other colors/animals/configurations are for heathens. ;p
Bought some bunny Peeps at Walgreen's after Easter last year. (Bunnies only because the surface to interior ratio is higher, i.e., there's more crust to dehydrate) In an effort to rid my house of non-Passover food, I finally consumed my year-old bunny Peeps last week and they were wonderful. How does anyone eat unripe Peeps?
I bought some Cadbury candy-coated mini-eggs yesterday.
Total sucker for the looks of those pastel hard-shell coatings.
Ate one when I got home. Holy-toothache-Batman!
Too sweet to taste good in my (old lady) opinion.
Still, they look lovely in a candy dish at this time of year.
