Easter 2011 Candy Guide

It's that time of year! Bunnies, Easter services, and candy are three things that families look forward to.  We can't help you with the bunnies, and the church thing is a personal decision, but we can tell you about some of the most delicious and unique treats to stuff your baskets with this year.  Here are our picks for 2011:

Wonka Double Yummy Gummies

Who needs regular gummy treats when you can have DOUBLE gummies?  These come in delicious fruit flavors like orange, lemon, and strawberry, and have a “gummy” fruit top layer paired with a squishy white mallow bottom layer.  They are fun shapes, too, making them great for younger kids (or the truly young at heart.)  Light, and not too rich, they are a great alternative to more fattening candies.

Wonka Exceptionals Eggs

As you can tell from our review of Wonka Exceptionals, we are already fans here.  This is why it only seemed natural for Wonka to take their perfectly-crafted Scrumdiddlyumptious bars and size them into dainty little chocolate eggs.  Great for the adult who wants to stop at one treat, they are individually-wrapped, and an indulgent blend of some of the creamiest milk chocolate, crunchy toffee, crisp cookie, and flavorful peanuts.  They have everything!

Reece's Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter Eggs

With more peanut butter per bite than at typical Reese's Peanut Butter Cup, these holiday treats are a true treasure.  Creamy, melt-in-your mouth PB flows perfectly with the smooth, perfectly poured chocolate coating.  No one can eat one, and because it's Easter, we believe you shouldn't!

Hershey's Chocolate Creme Egg

When bigger means better, reach for the yummy flavor of Hershey's chocolate in a jumbo Easter egg.  Spoiled kids will feel ever more spoiled, and parents can sneak bites of the egg when no on is looking.  This treat is meant to be eaten over a few days, or shared with friends!

Cadbury Eggs

What can I say about these classic candies? Chocolate on the outside, sweet crème on the inside that resembles egg white and yolk... they were a favorite growing up, and now my kids adore them, too!
