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

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.

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 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.

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.

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 Anonymous||reply 14||03/29/2013|
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.

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.

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.

Malted eggs with speckled shells. Do they still make them?
|by Anonymous||reply 20||03/29/2013|
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.

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

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

I think they may be a local Philly thing but Zitner's chocolate covered eggs are great, especially the butter krak.
|by Anonymous||reply 24||03/29/2013|
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.

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?

Yes. Scroll down a little.

The pastel colored malted milk ball eggs also made really good white lipstick!
I always had these in my Easter basket-

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 Anonymous||reply 30||03/30/2013|
I didn't much care for any of them. Even as a little kid I was never into sweets.
|by Anonymous||reply 31||03/30/2013|
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.

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.

I guess all the 2013 Easter candy will go on sale next week.
I might (~maybe) will buy some then.

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?

Cadbury Mini Eggs are my all-time favorite.
Least favorite: Cabdury Creme Eggs (original version; the chocolate ones are divine).

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.
