Happy Easter!

Easter is one of my favorite holidays! Most likely because it means lots and lots of

If you know me at all, then you know I have an insatiable sweet tooth. I just can't help myself. And Easter time means 2 of my favorite candies are out.

Cadberry Mini Eggs

To call this an obsession might be a little bit of an understatement. I kid you not it's the first thing I think of when I wake up, I grab a handful the moment I walk in the door before I even put down my keys, and I even stay up late (which is rare) just to eat more eggs. If you've never tried these then please, for the sake of mankind, go to the nearest store and buy a bag. You just might find you love them.

make sure they're the Minis! Not the big eggs....with a cream center....sick.

Another favorite of mine:

Seasonal Reeses
(emphasis on the seasonal part)
Now you don't have to discriminate between the seasons. The pumpkins, christmas trees and hearts are just as delicious! It trumps the regular Reeses Peanut Butter Cups because there is a different peanut butter-to-chocolate ratio in the seasonal Reeses and it is pure perfection. Mmmm....my tummy is growling just thinking about it.

And the candy that made me fall in love with candy is.....

Kinder Bueno!

I first laid eyes on this delectable little candy when I was vacationing in Europe in 4th grade. O my word if you like hazelnut then you will LOVE this. For a very long time I could only get this candy when I went back to Europe (which wasn't nearly often enough). THEN a wonderful moment happened in my life. I was introduced to World Market. Please go there now...and buy me some Kinder Bueno. I'll love you forever.

How bad is this obsession? BAD. Last year I thought "Hey it's Lent...I should give up something I love." So logically I gave up sweets. Quite possibly the most idiotic thing I've ever attempted. I made it a whopping 2 weeks (which no lie felt like 2 years). Then when I splurged, I splurged BIG. So BIG I went to Walgreens and spent $50 on candy and ate it within 1 week! Yeah thats embarrassing. Just thought you should know.

Have a Happy Easter everyone!
