The last days of Easter candy
We've been obsessively pacing the candy aisle, trying to resist the urge to stock up on Cadbury Creme Eggs (we lose every time). As the Easter Bunny shops to fill all those little baskets he'll be delivering Sunday, the candy has been fast disappearing. Yet still we're awed by the vast Easter selection.
That's why we're so glad that the CandyBlog recently celebrated its first birthday and is cruising along on its marvelous, sugar-fueled high. There's even an Easter category, which goes through as many Easter candies as a human can stomach. We love the ratings system — yummy, tempting, benign — check it out before taking your Easter candy plunge.
So now you know about our weakness for Cadbury Creme Eggs. What's your favorite Easter candy?
