Easter candy already showed up in the store the day after Valentine's Day. Truth be told, I was kinda happy to see all those goodies because some of my favorite candies only come around for Easter. For instance, my absolute favorite Easter candy would have to be those big malt balls with the candy coating. They kinda look like robin's eggs but they come in all sorts of colors and are speckled. Years ago, they used to make these amazing popcorn bunnies. I used to like them so much that I would ask for those instead of chocolate bunnies from the Easter Bunny. So, what your favrite Easter candy?

Those malted robin eggs are my favourite candy too! And they have some new ones out this year, they're called strawberry milkshake robin eggs, instead of chocolate coating they have a creamy white coating that tastes like strawberry icecream, with the same crispy malt ball inside! Sooooo addicting...

I think we got them from the Canadian superstore or Zellers... any big store that has the Robin Egg brand malt balls might have them!

Oh, the Starburst Jellybeans are really good. Smuckers also makes these great jellybeans that I can only seem to find around Easter. What are heavenly hash eggs?

I like jellybeans. I mean who can't? Those are like the classics of Easter. I also love Cadbury Eggs. Those are great. I don't like any though besides the original Cadbury eggs. The original is what I grew up on so that is what's best!

Easter candy definitely has more variety than valentine's candy. There are 3 major Easter candies that I really like. Jelly Beans-My favorites are Jelly Belly. But what I really like at Easter is that they have bag of only black licorice jelly beans. I know not may people like then, but I really like black licorice. Malted Milk eggs-Like Krebstar mentioned, I also love those big malted milkball eggs. Something about them is so addicting. I can eat wayyyy too many. I just love malt in general in fact. Marshamellow Peeps-I'm a traditionalist and I think the yellow marshmellow chickies are my favorite. But there's a twist. I only like them stale. I open the package and let them sit for weeks until they are hard and taffy like. Only then do I eat them. The hardest part of this is keeping my boyfriend away from them while they get stale!

Stale? How funny. I would never think to try that. Then again, I find marshmellow Peeps to be really too sweet for my taste. I must admit thought that I love all the colors they come in now. They are so pretty.

Hummm, yummy.....it is time for small easter chocolate eggs. Almost everybody have this chocolate in their house. It comes in different colours and flavours and fulling. My husband loves this, he can eat the whole bag for himself. During easter, I always buy some suprise chocolate eggs for children. Especially for my daughter and her friends.... They love them !!! They always excited with the surprised they got inside the chocolate egg....such as...dora, spongebob, winx, disney princess, cars...etc.

I love roasted peeps (do them over the stove like a regular marshmallow). You've just got to be sure and let it sit for a minute so the sugar hardens back up, but they are nice and crispy on the outside and smooshy on the inside. I also love cadbury eggs, only I buy the mini ones now so I can have a lttle treat but not go hog wild.

My favorites are Reesee Peanut Butter Eggs (they are NOT the same as a Reesee Cup people... don't tell me they are! LOL) and Cadbury mini eggs. YUM! I think that's part of the reason they're so great though... you don't have them all the time.

My favorite Easter candy is jelly beans! I love them, but not the cheapies, as all the flavors tend to taste more or less the same.
