I’m Loving: Cadbury Mini Eggs

Happy Spring, everyone!! It seems like people all over the country have been enjoying warm weather the past few days!  (Everyone, except for those of us that live in San Fran!)   I’m so happy its finally spring time!!  One of the things that I look forward to the most this time of year is buying Cadbury mini eggs!!  These little bite-sized pieces of chocolate are my favorite!  They only hit the stores once a year around Easter time and I get giddy with excitement whenever I get my hands on my first bag of the year.  Growing up, I loved the big caramel Cadbury eggs, but nowadays the mini little ones with the crunchy shell have me hooked. I can’t stop eating them!  There are all these knock-off brands, but Cadbury is the best.  In theory, they are kind of like giant egg-shaped M&Ms but I don’t know what it is, they taste so much better.

They also have them in dark chocolate, too!

I’ve been eating these by the handful!! How can you resist?

With the boxes of girl scout cookies that we got and now these bags of candy and some Easter jellybeans, we are all set in the sweets department for awhile!  Anyone else addicted to these?!

Hi Kim, thanks for your note. It’s always so encouraging to hear from readers, especially from those around the world! I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your son, I can only imagine how heartbreaking that is. Please accept my condolences. Sending you some hugs, too.

I eat these by the bag- they last no longer than a few hours once I have my hands on them. Yes- I am addicted to these and happy they come around only once a year otherwise I would be extremely overweight!

When I was a little duffer, my best friend and I would lick each “egg” and rub them on our lips and the candy shell would leave a little color behind. We thought we were SO cool with our lipstick :)

Hello there!!

My friend loves those eggs but can’t find them anywhere, may I ask where you got them from? Do you live in Melbourne?
