Easter Candy

What are/were your favorites? Which ones do/did you like the least?

by Anonymousreply 4403/31/2013

All I like are jellybeans.

Years ago, our grandmother used to give my brothers and me something called a "fruit and nut" egg and it was ghastly.

Don't care about the chocolates either. The chocolate used in Easter candy is not the good stuff anyway.

Amen. Actually, I don't think it even qualifies as chocolate.

Black jelly beans. Mmmmmm mmmmm.

We also as kids used to get these nougat candy at Easter. I think its an Italian thing. It's really good, but you risk having the fillings in your teeth pulled out by just chewing it.

See's Rocky Road and Bordeaux Easter Eggs. I also like jellybeans--even the black ones.

I don't like any of it and agree about the poor quality of the chocolate, but I especially hate(d) Peeps.

by Anonymousreply 403/29/2013

R4 Peeps are disgusting.

Peeps are best for dioramas, not eating.

I love malted milk balls, so those robin's eggs were my favorites. I also like jelly beans. I loathe anything marshmallow.

I like Cadburys eggs but Peeps are the worst

I LOVED the fruit and nut egg!

My mom would get a big one every year and we'd all eat pieces of it.

Cadbury's mini eggs...i eat a whole bag and then spend 20 minutes on the shitter.

by Anonymousreply 1003/29/2013

Oh my God, r9!

Shit, had we know who you are, we would've gladly mailed them to you!

Instead they sat moldering in the refrigerator until we finally threw them away around Memorial Day.

Yuck!

by Anonymousreply 1103/29/2013

Yeah, they were big nasty fuckers, too, r9. About the size of football shaped grapefruit.

I'm shuddering from even their memory. Yee-uck!

I LOVE candy corn, the good quality stuff where you can really taste the honey. CC has the reputation of being Halloween candy, but it's good all year round.

Loved Cadbury cream eggs as a kid but they are too sweet for me to eat as an adult.

by Anonymousreply 1403/29/2013

Not a jellybean fan, but they are good to munch sporadically. Hate Peeps and all things marshmallow. They're cute, but taste horrid. I used to love those big chocolate easter bunnies, but they could be a bit much at times. My fave overall would be the pecan/nougat eggs. They are delicious.

Reese's peanut butter eggs.

by Anonymousreply 1603/29/2013

I love Peeps, but stale. You have to open the package and let them sit out for a few days.

I also love the robins' eggs.

I also love homemade coconut cream eggs. I may have to make some tomorrow.

by Anonymousreply 1703/29/2013

I hate all of it.

by Anonymousreply 1803/29/2013

I love Peeps. I find myself eating one and then another. Before I know it, half of the box is gone. I like Cadbury creme eggs but one is definitely enough -- too sweet.

by Anonymousreply 1903/29/2013

Malted eggs with speckled shells. Do they still make them?

by Anonymousreply 2003/29/2013

As long as they don't use artificial flavoring I'm in. Fruit&nut eggs can be fab or horrible, depending on what's in it. Same with those brightly colored coconut/marshmallow eggs.

by Anonymousreply 2103/29/2013

I'm addicted to Cadbury cream eggs. If I have 4 in front of me, they're gone in 5 minutes.

by Anonymousreply 2203/29/2013

Jellybeans and Elmer's eggs. Heavenly Hash, Gold Brick, Pecan Egg. Yum.

by Anonymousreply 2303/29/2013

I think they may be a local Philly thing but Zitner's chocolate covered eggs are great, especially the butter krak.

by Anonymousreply 2403/29/2013

It's boring, but I generally like the same candies that are marketed for Christmas, Valentine's Day, et al - Reese's eggs and the miniatures.

I don't mind some of the other chocolate eggs that have marshmallow or fruit filling but their quality varies depending on who makes them.

Not a fan of Peeps, jellybeans or hard boiled eggs.

by Anonymousreply 2503/29/2013

Krak?!

by Anonymousreply 2603/29/2013

Speckled malted milk eggs and a big glass of milk....

Does anyone remember those large spun sugar (?) eggs that had a hole at one end--if you looked through the hole, you would see some sort of eatest related picture inside?

by Anonymousreply 2703/29/2013

Yes. Scroll down a little.

by Anonymousreply 2803/29/2013

The pastel colored malted milk ball eggs also made really good white lipstick!

I always had these in my Easter basket-

by Anonymousreply 2903/30/2013

Favorites - Ordinary Hershey's foil wrapped mini chocolate eggs. And jelly beans. Although I like Cadbury products, those chocolate creme eggs with the yellow centers creep me out.

by Anonymousreply 3003/30/2013

I didn't much care for any of them. Even as a little kid I was never into sweets.

by Anonymousreply 3103/30/2013

r27--yes, they still make those. I was in a shop last week that specializes in old-fashioned handmade candies and they had ones you look in and there's a little sugar bunny or chick sitting there staring back at you. Adorable.

Liking nuts and dried fruit in your chocolate is a very old-fashioned thing. I remember my stepmother loved Cadbury fruit and nut candy bars. I liked Chunkys.

by Anonymousreply 3403/30/2013

Black jelly beans. I only see the bag of all licorice this time of year and I buy several to last the year. They are always the cheapest ones out there too, 89 cents a bag. I guess I'm one of the few who likes them.

by Anonymousreply 3503/30/2013

I guess all the 2013 Easter candy will go on sale next week.

I might (~maybe) will buy some then.

by Anonymousreply 3603/30/2013

On Friday, my local CVS had Cadbury creme eggs for $0.25 each AND buy one, get one free. Definitely time to stock up.

Creme Egg mojito, anyone?

by Anonymousreply 3703/30/2013

Candy beans!

Cadbury Mini Eggs are my all-time favorite.

Least favorite: Cabdury Creme Eggs (original version; the chocolate ones are divine).

by Anonymousreply 3903/30/2013

I loved Chunkys.

See's has wonderful Easter candy.

Russell Stover Raspberry Whip eggs, Russell Stover Pecan Delight eggs, black jelly beans, and Lindt bunnies. I like my peeps nuked.

Not candy but one of my favourite sweets at Easter is my friend's cake. She makes a six-layer lemon cake, filled with lemon curd and raspberry jam, frosted with lemon icing, and covered with green coconut so it looks like grass. She decorates it with peeps and malted milk eggs. It is soooo good.

I like the cotton candy

Gold Brick! Gold Brick sundaes are awesome! And we use to get Mavrako's (St. Louis) Pecan Heavenly Hash.
