Cadbury’s also added Chocolate Orange Easter Creme eggs this year (I didn’t like them, and I love chocolate+orange).

I sent you an e-mail and I’m not sure if you go it because I never got a reply back but it was about Papa’s eggs

They make milk and dark chocolate covered marshamallow eggs and opera cream eggs.

here is a photo of the makers with the product

they’re regional and people go insane for them this time of the year
I offered to send some, let me know if you’re interested


this year I noticed a return of the Sweetarts Chicks and bunnies, which I don’t remember seeing last year


Walmart had a bunch of different flavored milkshake whoppers in the miniature carton

Peeps come in orange now

Pixie Sticks in green tubes

Hershey really ought to consider making a version of the robins eggs year round, those things fly out of my store

That’s weird! I remember them a couple of years ago but didn’t see them last year.

I picked some up over the weekend, just in case they were different. Great idea, but mine were still clumpy in the middle and disappointing.

Great link! Thanks.

I did get some other regionally made marshmallow eggs I’ll post about soon. So many wonderful things to try!

I saw those! They’re pretty cute, but unfortunately they’re all cherry flavored. (Personally, I’d prefer grape, but I guess if you’re a huge cherry pixy stix fan, this is the time to get them!)

I also finally started seeing the SweeTarts. Unfortunately they’re still Blue/Pink/Purple. I miss the yellow and green ones and don’t think I’ll buy them unless they’re majorly on sale.

I posted today about the Brach’s Robin Eggs, which were new to me.

I wonder if the candy is the same size in those tiny cartons or if they’re smaller (like the Mighty Malts).

The King Size Reese’s Easter Eggs are absolute perfection (if you like peanut butter).  They are far superior to the Reese’s Bar and the Reester Bunnies due to the high PB to Chocolate ratio

I saw some Runts jelly beans in Target. They’re white with speckles on them, one color per bean. I’d never seen those before. I’d have gotten some, but I’m all jelly beaned out. raspberry
