Easter Candy Review: Mounds Egg and Almond Joy Egg

Categories: Candy,Candy Reviews,Chocolate Candy,Holiday Candy,Limited Edition Candy

Almond Joy Egg

When I bought the Almond Joy Egg and Mounds Egg on sale at Walgreens, I was not only excited to pay only fifty cents apiece, but I was thrilled to find classic candy turned into an Easter treat. I held high expectations for both, since I’m a sucker for the heavily sweetened coconut that fills both Mounds and Almond Joy. Almond Joy is my favorite of the two, and I generally shy away from buying the bars because I usually want to eat them until I feel sick. Needless to say, I hurried through dinner, ready to taste coconutty goodness in holiday form.

I chose the Almond Joy Egg first. When I unwrapped it, I was disappointed to see that there was clearly only one almond in the egg, while two are pictured on the package. I also thought it was rather odd that the 1.1oz egg was really shaped like half an egg, or an egg with a flat side. Nevertheless, I bit into the Almond Joy with optimism that it would be great candy.

Easter Candy Review: Brach’s Bunny Basket Eggs

Brach's Bunny Basket Eggs

I don’t know why or what it is about Easter Candy: the colors, the designs, the pleasing egg shapes, the promise of spring, but for some reason during this specific candy season I feel compelled to ignore my better instincts and try the grossest and oddest stuff I can get my hands on.

Last year I reviewed Brach’s Chicks and Rabbits, which are like the rejects of the circus peanuts. This year, my fancy was caught by these odd, large, brightly colored eggs. I mean, picking up the bag, it feels heavier than what it looks like it should be. Is this a good or bad sign? I could only shove my good judgment into my back pocket and throw the bag of these babies into my cart. I mean, come on, I’ve had some pretty strange things before. So how strange could these really be?

I have to admit, I’m a bit of a novice to a lot of the Easter Candy out there. My parents, or rather, the “Easter Bunny” preferred to give chocolate rabbits, dyed eggs and Jelly Bellys. So I was never given the pectin jelly beans that everyone goes mad over this time of year. I also never got any of the malted robins eggs, marshmallow Peeps (gasp! I know!) or the purely sugar-based confections like the Bunny Basket Eggs. I mean, I think it wasn’t until high school that I had my first Cadbury Creme Egg! Looking back on it, I’m wondering how hindered I was by this, considering how my love of candy has grown to epic proportions.

Easter Candy Review: Lindt Fun Eggs

Lindt Fun Egg Chocolate Candy

Random new candy purchases can be dangerous. On one hand you could have found a new favorite, on the other you may have wasted money on some sub-par, run-of-the-mill candy that you wouldn’t mind never seeing again. The former was the case when I found these Lindt Fun Eggs.

I was prowling around shopping the other weekend and thought I’d check in my local Lindt retail store for some eye candy. I didn’t expect to buy anything, seriously, because Lindt is pretty reliable in regard to releasing the same old classic confections for the holidays from year to year. So you can expect my surprise when I saw these two new filled eggs on display. One with a passion fruit vanilla creme and the other strawberry. What struck me as so new and exotic about these was not only that these were new Easter items, but as far as I know I’ve never even seen these flavors attempted by Lindt before. Luck was surely shining on me.
