My favorite Easter candy: No, it's not Peeps
I was curious about what we discussed last year on Easter Sunday, so I went back and was surprised to find that it was nothing Easter-ish. Dining@Large's first post on Restaurants and the Economy appeared, and it spurred Owl Meat to some of his finest commenting ever. (My other post of the day was the Next Sunday's Review feature.)
I'm fine with not hitting all the holidays. But it does lead me to a discussion of foods, in this case candy, that aren't available year round.
I only buy one Easter candy this time of year, a single bag of Hershey's candy-coated milk chocolate eggs. They are fatter than M & Ms, but it's the same principle: solid milk chocolate in a shell, although the eggs (not really egg-shaped) come in pastel colors.
They're better than M & Ms because the ratio of chocolate to shell is higher. And most important: The rest of my family doesn't particularly like them, so I don't have to fight to get my fair share. I should do a separate post on things you buy simply because no one else in your family likes them.
The fact that Hershey's candy-coated eggs are hard to find in my neighborhood makes them even more desirable than they would be otherwise. (Admittedly I don't go out of my way to find them.)
But, as usual, I'm wondering what happens when Easter comes and goes and not all of them have been sold. Do they get put away to reappear on the store shelves next year?
