A Moment of Perfection

I have given up most junk food and candy bars to prep for my Appalachian Trail hike; since it has been delayed I decided to spoil myself a little with a Cadbury Egg. I usually have dreams about these amazing treats and will pick through the whole basket of them to find one with the perfect egg shape. As I bit into the top of it I was glad that it wasn't filled to the top of the egg; the center is gooey and sticky and not all that furniture or finger friendly. It didn't take much to get the foil off of it, there are times when the center leaks out and makes it almost impossible to get the foil off. My moment of perfection came when I needed to put the egg down but had nothing clean to put it on. Then it struck me, I needed a makeshift egg-cup. Since I had nothing even close to that within arms reach I put it on the never-used mouse track pad on my laptop. Much to my surprise, it stood up perfectly and the chocolate egg shell did its job of containing the fondant goo. What do you love about Easter candy? Do you enjoy Cadbury eggs? Are you addicted to jelly beans? Photo: Me

I like that the day after Easter the price of Easter eggs drops by 50%.

If I were in a shop at that time, I'd be stocking up too!

The four pack boxes were on sale for .99 cents the day after Easter. That's 1/3 what they were selling for LOL

Cadbury's Creme Eggs are too sweet for me, the sugar makes my teethe itch... Funnily, I got one for my daughter, she asked if it was possible to get Cadbury's chocolate in the USA - I guess, the answer is yes!

There are knock-off versions from other companies but none of them have ever come close to matching the super sweet fondant center of these

I used to love Cadbury eggs but in my oldage they seem too rich for me now. I would not say I'm addicted to jelly beans. I can quit eating them anytime I run out.

Someone gave me a bag of the Jelly Belly jelly beans and I couldn't eat them - there were so many flavors I couldn't tell one from another and when I thought I had green apple it turned out to be something completely different. Too many flavor choices is dangerous for me LOL

@freak369 I like the simplicity of Brachs jelly beans minus the liquorice ones.

I used to love these as a child and then one day as an adult they just struck me as disgusting while I was eating one. Haven't had one since.

I used to have a thing for Peeps .. for whatever reason the taste of them isn't the least bit appealing to me these days.,

I keep Cadbury eggs in the freezer. No mess and more enjoyable because they last longer. I just let them thaw and disolve in my mouth.

I bought myself some Lindor chocolate for Easter and enjoyed eating that over a few days. I'm not really into lollies.
