It's Cadbury Creme Egg time!
I had never, ever had one of these until 1996, when I was in college. My friend Jen had given up candy for Lent and she missed these the most. We were driving around aimlessly one night, trying to forget we had Organic Chemistry due, and she had me stop at the 7-11 for a Cadbury egg and a Lottery ticket (another thing I'd never bought before).
I'd heard of these "eggs", but was dubious because the insides seemed, well, a bit ... icky.
I remembered the first commercials in the US for these things, and they made a great to-do about the gooey eggy "realism" and I just did not like eggs in any form at ALL, so this wasn't endearing itself to me. No rushing to the store in my pajamas at 3am for a chocolate fix. No, that wasn't me.
Now, though, that COULD be me. Seriously. The lucky thing? One egg will put me into a sugar coma. I just ate one five minutes ago, was prompted to write this, and am lucky I am still coherent. And my refusing to enter the candy aisles at Target, Walmart, or Giant does no good at all when you have a well-meaning, loving husband who only wants to make you happy with the goodness that is Chocolate.
Zack, however, won't have a thing to do with these eggs.
So, what is YOUR favorite Easter candy?
