Easter Candy 2014 -- your new finds and tried and true faves?

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.

OLD FAVES:
Bunny Mix Peanut M&Ms
Brach's Fiesta Malted Milk Eggs -- still MIA ;-(.
and….
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.

  1. 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.

    1. For purely sentimental reasons I like classic Cadbury eggs, the ones with interiors made to look like eggs that so sugary they hurt. I'll eat one. My son will eat the rest, no matter how many. My real Easter fave is egg salad, complete with little bits of bright blue and deep pink.

        My SO ~must~ pick up one of those Cadbury eggs every time we visit a grocery store in March/April.

        Those things must be filled with crack or some other highly addictive substance.

      2. 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.

          I bought some of the candy corn at Walgreen's.

          1. re: jbsiegel

            Will have to go check my local Walgreen's out. Thanks!

        2. 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

          1. 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.
