Favorite Novelty Easter Candy

Just out of curiosity, what is your favorite novelty Easter candy? I used to love the Cadbury Creme Eggs and, to a lesser degree, robin eggs but I haven't really had Easter candy in ages (unless you count a bag of vaguely related Lindor truffles a few years back).

    My favorite "Easter Candy" are hard boiled eggs pickled with beets, vinegar and pickling spices.
    And regular old fashioned Jelly Beans, The Black ones!

    If robin eggs are the pastel colored, hard shell, chocolate and malted milk eggs than they are my favorite.
     
    I also like the day after Easter candy.  All of it.

    In school we used to make these sugary colorful coconut nests with Robin eggs (yes, the pastel colored, hard shell, chocolate and malted milk eggs) - I haven't had them in years but I can still taste them just thinking back to them!

    None!  I don't like candy and especially not chocolate or jelly beans or peeps.  But I'm weird.  My parents gave me a small Easter basket when I was little and they ate all the candy.

    You "used to" love the Cadbury Creme eggs. Just today, my wife was complaining that they are not as good as they used to be, and that she doesn't like them anymore. I wonder if both of you have just moved on in the taste dept, or if the formula has been changed to keep the price down? She prefers Lindor, now, too.

    I don't like the Cadbury eggs any more either (my taste buds are 73 years old), but I love those Lindor truffles.

    Back when they were little girls, Mrs. Roadhouse used to carefully craft Easter baskets for our daughters, abe_froeman and her younger, non-Roadfood sister.  The candy was always appreciated, but the star of the basket for abe was a jar of pickled herring in cream sauce.
     
    Our cured fish loving daughter was wacky for sardines as well.  She used to watch my Dad as he'd eat a peasant lunch of tinned sardines and crackers, insisting that he name each salty fish before eating it.  "This one is named Fred," gulp, "This is Louise," chomp, "Say hello and goodbye to Jimmy," munch...until they'd devoured the entire can.
     
    Given further thought, I guess it all ties in to Easter: Sardines on crackers is just another version of loaves and fishes.  A single can feeding a Jewish grandfather and his Jewish/Catholic granddaughter suits the story nicely.
     
    abe still loves the little fishies, but her tastes have evolved and refined.  She now insists on a very specific Spanish brand of sardines and nothing less will do.

    BuddyRoadhouse...  What a wonderful story and memory!  Gulp!
     
    Never cared for the Cadbury Eggs but loved the commercials when they first came out.

    Cadbury Mini Eggs. Pure chocolate with a pastel sugar shell. You bite the shell open and suck the chocolate out. You can make them last a long time.

    Red Swedish Fish

    Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs

    Any kind of coconut creme egg. Bonus points for dark chocolate.

    And my favorie Easter treat is a toss up between pigus (ravioli dough filled with egg/cheese mixture, and baked) and Easter Cheese bread. You roll the dough out, sprinkle the cheese on, roll it up, and put into a loaf pan to bake. Swirly cheesy goodness.

    When I worked at Woolworth's as a teenager part of my job was taking all unsold Easter candy back down to the storage area for next years sales. Mmmm. Easter candy lost all allure.

    They don't do that now. It's 50% off, then 75% off.

    Cadbury creme eggs will always be number 1 in my heart.  After that it's Reese's peanut butter eggs....I wish they would sell them all year, it's the perfect ratio of chocolate and peanut butter.  I like Starburst jelly beans over any others and a box of Whitman's Sampler is a perfect Easter.

    I like Russell Stover's jelly beans, Elmer's pecan eggs and heavenly hash.  Those mini robin's eggs mentioned earlier, that are really just candy coated malted milk balls.  The minis are just easier to eat, has nothing to do with portion control.

    I live close to a small candy company called Sarris and they make larger chocolate eggs during easter that I love.  Here's a link to them.

    Years ago I worked next to Doscher's Candy in Cincinnati, OH. Their main product line is the French Chew Taffy. Since we purchased candy from them Harry Doscher would come over and ask for help lifting the heavy copper kettles of candy when no one was there. During Easter Harry would make a few 5 pound chocolate covered cream eggs all decked out with spring time décor. One year I purchased one and this was one of the best cream eggs I ever ate.

    Cadbury creme eggs are not good as they used to. It feels much more oily than before.

    I want to hear about your lunches at Woolworth's.

    Grilled hot dogs with East Coast-style Buttered side cut buns (and plenty of onions, pickles, and most important, plenty of ketchup.
