Cadbury Creme Eggs, with caramel.

28. +1 for Cadbury Mini Eggs

Because they are only made once a year, unlike the many Holiday Reeses PB products (which are my close second fave), Cadbury Mini Eggs are that special Easter Candy for me.
Kind of like Shamrock Shakes at St Patricks Day time. You know you can only get these products for a short amount of time, so you better savor them while you can.

12. I think it has been at least 10 years since I have seen those

 

Brach's used to make them if I remember correctly. Other companies and candy stores made them too but Brach's was usually widely available.

Independent chocolate shops may make them still, I don't know, I seldom buy candy any more.

11. I get one bag of kiddie candy every Easter

Most years are like this year and it's malted milk eggs. I eat them for several days, my guts get ferociously upset, and I swear I'll never do it again....until next year.

14. Maybe its me ...

Being Jodo Shinshu and all... but I never understood the connection between Easter and Chocolate. Halloween I understand, though its not a religious day. In Japan, there is a day when its talked about Rabbits (Similar to the Easter bunnies) on the Moon pounding Mochi.. which is a treat in Japan. More about that here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moon_rabbit

Anyway.. Please enjoy your holiday!

20. In America, we have a long tradition

of finding ways to commercialize every holiday. It's just not a proper holiday unless corporations are making tons of profit by shaming us into ever more extravagant displays of 'affection' by handing out overpriced greeting cards and candy and decorating with all sorts of cheap kitsch.

25. We've always celebrated Easter as a completely secular holiday.

It wasn't til I was twelve that I learned that Easter had any connection with Jesus or Christianity.

36. Not 100% positive on this

I'd probably have to search it up again, but I remember learning that, like many Christmas traditions, the whole bunny/egg 'chocolate' thing at Easter has Pagan roots.

Any other time they're really damn expensive.

27. Those chocolate/coconut nests.

Especially back when they used to have jelly bean "eggs" in them.

Least favorite is anything marshmallow.

42. I can never find them...

Marshmallow eggs.

Not the ones covered in chocolate.

The other ones...a semi-hard candy shell with marshmallow inside. The outer shell comes in different colors...red, green, orange, yellow, pink...sometimes blue.
