Every Easter weekend of my childhood our family would drive from Montreal to Boston to visit our cousins in Hingham, Mass. Spring always hit the Boston area earlier, and I still remember the thrill of ditching our boots in favor of wearing our shoes outside for the first time in months. We would hold Easter Egg hunts outdoors in the brand new grass. It was during one of these visits I had my first taste of white chocolate.
Now Cadbury mini eggs are my favorite Easter candy. They used to be available only at Easter time, but somebody finally realized they were good enough to offer all year round. I could eat a giant bag of these in one sitting. I can’t anymore, of course, since I’ve ‘altered my eating lifestyle’ — a.k.a. I’m on a diet — so I received flowers this year from the Easter Bunny. But these little beauties are on the top of my list for Favorite Easter Candy.
A close second on the list is the Oh Henry Easter egg, also hubby’s favorite. These are very hard to find. You have to shop early if you want these, and they’re still only available at Easter.
What’s your favorite Easter candy? Did the Easter Bunny deliver this year?
