Easter is this weekend. The team at IReallyLikeFood celebrates any and every holiday with food as I’m sure you can all guess, and Easter is no exception. While not all of us celebrate it religiously, we certainly do not miss the array of candy adorning drugstore and grocery store shelves from March to April. From Cadbury Crème Eggs to Marshmallow Peeps, no confection was left unmentioned in my poll of the IReallyLikeFood contributors’ favorite Easter delights. Here are the Top 5:
The colors alone (bright and pastel) make these morsels of goodness the IRLF team’s favorite Easter candy.
2. Cadbury Crème Eggs
Who doesn’t love these? Whether you are eating a big egg or a bunch of mini eggs, Cadbury crème eggs do not disappoint. I also love the caramel eggs. Do you?
3. Whopper Robin Eggs
This malted milk candy got my vote. My Mom buys multiple bags during the season and I won’t embarrass myself by telling you how long it takes the two of us to finish a bag… Also, somehow the bright blue ones taste the best.
I was surprised these marshmallow chicks didn’t get more votes. Mostly everyone liked them, but they were only one persons’ favorite. One writer suggested using them to make S’mores; what a great idea!
5. Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs
I find that Reese’s just taste better in egg form. Do you agree? Reese’s isn’t strictly an Easter candy, but when made into the shape of an egg, it becomes just another excuse to eat this classic peanut butter chocolate indulgence.
What is your favorite Easter time treat?
