Favorite Easter Candy

I asked readers about their favorite Easter candy. Hundreds of responses revealed a tight race between Cadbury Eggs and chocolate bunnies.

As always, the comments made my day.

It was a difficult selection because chocolate bunnies were a close second, but I have to go with the Cadbury! And keep the peeps far away. LOL. I like them as decoration but . . .

Love to bite off those ears!

I love Russell Stover maple cream chocolate-covered eggs. Also the raspberry cream and coconut flavored fillings from their collection of individually wrapped eggs.

See’s chocolate divinity eggs. Wouldn’t be Easter without them.

I love the Whoppers Robin Eggs! I’ve always liked Whoppers but the crispy candy coating of the Robin Eggs makes them even better.

Egg-shaped malted milk balls are my top favorite Easter candy, followed by original Cadbury eggs.

The Cadbury Eggs are probably one of the most hideous singular concoctions made this time of year. Peeps are good in moderation.

The one I didn’t see mentioned were the chocolate covered malt balls shaped like eggs. Malt balls in any form are almost an addiction. I LOVE malt balls.

Jelly beans. What’s not to like? They are colorful, sweet and small. I can’t believe I’m actually saying this, but sometimes I’m tired of chocolate. And I don’t like the texture of marshmallows.

Easter m&m’s

Reese’s peanut butter eggs, preferably white chocolate.

Hope you a terrific Easter.

    Nobody said a thing about all the flavors jelly beans come in these days. Used to be I’d just avoid lime flavored jelly beans like the plague, or COVID these days. Now I’m avoiding whole packages of sour jelly beans, among others! Wow! Having to read the packaging carefully so as to not pluck something I detest (ok, dislike enough to throw away) off the shelf! Aren’t people funny in their preferences!

    Be awfully boring if we were all the same!

Reader Surveys

Each month, I survey readers on a random topic. I might ask about books, reading, and authors, as this is my primary focus. Some months, the survey focuses on the mountain region that has been my home. Other months, the query will be something completely random. The debate over mayonnaise might be the most contested ever.

In time for the monthly newsletter, I summarize and share the overall results and some of the highlights I learned. To protect privacy, I don't attempt connect the data in anyway to individuals and then delete the responses.

The following is the result of one of those surveys. And if you want to participate in this month's survey, just click the button.
