My Favorite Eggs of All Time
Item: Cadbury Eggs
Price: Less than $1
Where to Buy: Your local grocery store or drugstore
Review: Easter is in two days. Don't tell you haven't picked up a Cadbury Egg or two. Or twelve.
A Cadbury Egg has long been the easiest, cheapest way to make me happy on Easter morning. The creme egg is certainly a classic, with the frosting filling and even a "yolk" center. But the chocolate truffle egg is also a favorite, and even the caramel-filled egg when the mood strikes.
Easter just isn't Easter with a Cadbury Egg. By the same token, a Cadbury Egg is for Easter only. Last year I saw the eggs for sale in special holiday packaging (Christmas?) and it just wasn't right. It's like hanging a stocking in September or going trick-or-treating in February-- it just isn't done.
But downing a Cadbury Egg before breakfast on Easter morning? That, my friends, is certainly done.
