Adios Cadbury Eggs

I like candy. Quite a bit, actually. Which means that my calendar could be construed to rotate around the four "prime candy" holidays. As Easter passes, so do the Cadbury Eggs, leaving me in candy drought until October.

Fourth of July lollipops anyone?

In case you're wondering, the "big four" are:

Valentine's Day
Perfect time of year for chocolate. You should try to grab a candy conversation heart or two. And there's always appropriately colored Reese's cups and Hershey's kisses.

Here I have options. Chocolate or not. We have to start with the Cadbury Egg (pictured) and its gooey center. But there's also jellybeans (of which Starburst or Jelly Belly are the best, and the Laffy Taffy and Sweet Tart are just awful). But expand the jellybean search to include Brach's Spiced Jelly Bird Eggs (only get one bag of those, please). And grab some Peeps. And a chocolate bunny. And a few more jellybeans. And Cadbury solid chocolate with candy coating - forget what they are called.

Thank goodness when Halloween arrives. First off, it ends the candy drought. Second off, it is a holiday where non-chocolate candy can exist in droves. Candy corn, sweet tarts, smarties, mini-packages of everything from Runts to Sour Patch Kids, and more.

Gotta get some chocolate covered cherries. Maybe a chocolate orange. Gum drops. And something to fill the candy dish (likely Rolo, Reese's, and Hershey Kisses in dedicated packaging).

Anyway, now that you are in the loop, I will chow on that egg. Oh wait, I already did.

And so begins the drought.
