    Easter Candy

    Here comes Peter Cottontail, hoppin' down the Cyburbian Trail. This Bear wonders what kinds of goodies will be in my Easter Basket. Possibilities include.....

    Foil-wrapped small chocolate eggs.
    Marshmallow chickens (or whatever the hexx they are).
    Hollow chocolate bunnies
    Solid chocolate bunnies.
    Foil-wrapped Hershey Kisses.
    Beef stick. ?

    What do you expect or desire in your basket?

    My husband requires Reese' peanut butter eggs. I love having good jelly beans, Cadbury eggs, a solid chocolate Easter bunny, and some peanut butter eggs.

    I'm partial to the robin eggs.

    The dogs usually wake up to find plastic eggs filled with treats. I think the bunny is bringing Wet Noses and salmon sticks this year.
    Anyone want to adopt a dog?

    mmm easter candy. I am particularly partial to Peeps! I like get a large package, cut a few slits in the plastic and 'forget about them' for a week or two. Stale peeps are the best.

    Another vote for Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs and then there's always the need for Brachs or JellyBelly jellybeans.

    The original Cadbury eggs are a must have for Easter! Don't bother with the newer versions - caramel, fudge, etc - just the original. I love to put them in the freezer for a few days, so they don't melt while I'm eating them.

    Hollow bunnies are good, the Reese's eggs are yummy, and some fun jelly beans look cool in the basket. But if there's no Cadbury egg, then I'm not a happy Bunny!

    I could not eat chocolate for many years without getting a headache following the time the Easter Bunny brought me an entire basket filled with chocolate eggs. Yes, I ate almost all of them at one sitting. I'm sure no one else ever did that.

    I'm partial to hollow chocolate bunnies

    Gertrude Hawk Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bunny Smidgens. *drool*

    Cadbury creme eggs and Reese's peanut butter eggs are a must too.

    I always end up with some Lindt foil-wrapped chocolate bunnies, lambs, and carrots. Never seem to eat them tho. I think I still have some from 3 Easters ago.

    Dove truffle eggs. Yumm.

    My son has a severe tree nut allergy though so most of that stuff never gets into our house. Even most jelly beans are made in facilities which process tree nuts. I have to sneak it at the office. Where plenty of other nuts are allowed through the doors every day......

    Peeps are the best. They're harder to find in Canada (especially on the non-Easter holidays), so I definitely had to buy a package when I was in Ohio last week.

    My favorite Easter candy is the orginal Cadbury eggs and robin eggs.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?
