I’m not a chocolate fan.
Now, now… I didn’t say I “hate” chocolate, or I “don’t like” chocolate… I’m just not a fan. Maybe my disdain for this confection comes from being exposed to such cheap drug-store brands like Russell-Stover or Whitman’s as a young lad. Or maybe it had something to do with eating way to many 3 Musketeer bars and spending the night repositioning them into a bucket next to my bed.
Whatever the reason, I’m just not a fan. Except at Easter time.
Oh, Easter! The one time a year when Cadbury makes the only chocolate I’ll eat – the Cadbury Mini Eggs. These irresistible nuggets of milk chocolate shaped like a bird’s egg and coated in a crispy, sugary, candy shell are my weakness. Just ask Pam, the owner of BlairCandy.com.
When she told me that she spent this past weekend getting all the Easter candy up for sale on her eCommerce store, I knew this was the moment I’ve been waiting for. Just a few weeks ago, I finished the last bag of Cadbury Mini Eggs I had left from last Easter. You see, I buy a lot and keep a candy dish filled with them throughout the year, so when it’s time for a quick Mini Egg fix, they’re right there.
Today, I received my order of three cases of these sugary delights from BlairCandy.com.
- 108 bags.
- 1,080 ounces of chocolate.
- 1 year’s worth of way too much chocolate.
- Far too many calories to even think of.
But who cares! I’ve got a year’s supply of the only chocolate candy I eat and I’m happy.
Just don’t buy up all the Mini Eggs, I may be back for more…
