Mini Robin Eggs

Holidays.  Food, food and more food. What it’s all about.  Oh, and candy.  Lots and lots of candy.  In fact, so much candy that it can be quite confusing walking down the holiday candy aisle in a store.  How do you choose?  Solid chocolate bunnies, hollow chocolate bunnies, hollow white chocolate peanut butter swirl bunnies, peanut butter eggs, pastel everything, speckled gum, bunny gummies, oh and of course…Peeps.  I can barely type that.  How does something so completely inedible sell like hotcakes every year?  I don’t get it.

Anyway, the point is there are a LOT of choices.  But I’m going to help you make the right one.  Next to Junior Mints, Butterfingers and every variety of sour gummy candy out there, malted mini Robin Eggs are the only (Easter) candy worth your money and daily allotment of saturated fat and sugar.  In my humble opinion.  So sweet.  So perfectly crunchy.  So…malty.  I could eat a whole bag (or two) in the time it takes to watch one episode of American Idol.  This candy is good.  And dangerous.

So hopefully this will help you cut down on the 30 minutes or so you’ll spend in the candy aisle, picking up bags and putting them back, agonizing over what to get.  Before you know it you’ll through the express check out line, in your car and have half the bag eaten before you even leave the parking lot.
