Peeps Oreo

Peeps Oreo – A New Easter Classic?

*Careful Peeps Oreo has been known to turn your tongue hot pink! Eat at your own risk.* Let’s be honest, no one really likes Peeps. I’m confident that no one on Earth would qualify it as their favorite candy. But if anyone could get people to like Peeps, it would be Oreo. Oreo is coming…

Starburst Jelly Beans flavors

Starburst Sour Jelly Beans [Review]

Easter candy with a sour twist Easter is a great holiday because its candy selection is topnotch– fact. Every Easter, you have your Cadbury Cream Eggs, your Reese’s Eggs, and of course, your fair share of jelly beans around the supermarket. All are great choices, but if you’re a sweet tooth like me, you always…

Gingerbread M&M’s

I love gingerbread and gingerbread cookies. When The Impulsive Buy posted photos of Gingerbread M&M’s and Gingerbread Twix, I went hunting for them both at my local Walmart. Alas, I was only able to find the M&M’s; no Twix. Though the Gingerbread M&M’s were not explicitly packaged with a “limited edition” tag, Red is wearing a Santa…

Jelly Belly Pea & Carrots

I’m not sure if these Peas & Carrots mellocreme candies from Jelly Belly are a seasonal Easter treat or not. My little bag was bought at the dollar store, where it was shelved with other Jelly Belly treats. Still, peas and carrots nicely fit in with springtime and bunnies, so it would make a good…

Russell Stover Iddy Biddy Bunnies

These Iddy Biddy Bunnies were a seasonal Easter treat from Russell Stover. My 1.7 oz bag advertised 60 pieces and noted that the bunnies on the wrapper were “Actual Size!” The bag of chocolate smelled sweetly chocolatey, like Hershey’s chocolate syrup. The molded bunnies were, as promised, Iddy Biddy indeed – just under an inch…

Black Forest Juicy Oozers Gummy Cracked Eggs

Hi readers! Sorry I was AWOL on reviews last week – I was road-tripping and out of the town the previous weekend and fell behind on life. I’m back now with some drug store buys from my pre-road trip snack shopping. First up, Black Forest‘s Juicy Oozers Gummy Cracked Eggs. These were a seasonal Easter…

Peterbrooke Chocolatier Wonder Egg

Usually companies (or their PR firms) contact me to get my address and ask about my review policy before sending me free samples. This Peterbrooke Chocolatier Wonder Egg arrived without warning. It was a nice surprise and made waves at lab due to its impressive size. This chocolate egg was ginormous (shown below with jelly…

Surf Sweets Fruity Hearts

I received a bag of Surf Sweets Fruity Hearts as free samples from the manufacturer. The press release said that they were launched in time for Valentine’s Day, though it was never explicit about whether these were a limited holiday edition or not. They were, however, explicit about touting all the benefits to the Surf…

Cadbury Popping Mini Eggs

Cadbury Popping Mini Eggs

I found these Cadbury Popping Mini Eggs in Canada. I love Cadbury Mini Eggs and always try to snatch them up around Easter time, so I was super excited to try them with a popping twist. Tiny print on the bottom of the wrapper called them, “solid milk chocolate eggs with popping candy in a crisp…

Hedonist Farm Egg Truffles

Usually I review Easter candies after the holiday is over – love those steep next day sales! But today, I’m actually reviewing an Easter product before Easter, thanks to free samples from Hedonist Artisan Chocolates. These Farm Egg Truffles are made to look like (aka are not made from) farm eggs. They are mind-bogglingly gorgeous with…
