    So as I am sitting here munching on Jelly Beans, I am wondering, what does everyone else crave at easter time? I love those cadbury creme eggs, and jelly beans.

    Cadbury Cream Eggs. I've got what's left of a dozen in the kitchen right now.

    Reese PB Eggs. All time favorite. I found one this year that was called king size. It was huge! It was like the Easter version of a Reese Big Cup.

    Cadbury Creme Eggs are second.

    I must warn you of my "Bing Bias" that will soon be evident in this post.

    I think ANY of the Palmer Candy Company Easter candies are superior to just about anything else out there. Their chocolate has this soft, buttery feel and flavor to it that is just out of this world!

    I don't know if it's because they don't add as much wax or what, but I love Palmer's solid eggs, and ANY of their bunnies.

    My kids love Veggie Tales, (as do I, but SHHH!!! don't tell anyone!) especially the episode about Nebbie's Chocolate Factory.

    "The Bunny, the bunny, gotta have the bunny....."

    That's what Palmer's chocolate rabbits remind me of.

    Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs are the best.

    I love the cadbury mini-eggs. Nothing inside, just little candy coated eggs with the best chocolate in the world wrapped up inside.
    Every Easter, I stock up on them to last me a while. Last year, my wife hid a bag from me, and we enjoyed them in October. It was fantastic.

    Cadbury eggs. Can't get enough of 'em. My wife limits us to one per hour. I set my alarm to wake up at night to get mine.

    You can't eat the peeps fresh. You have to let them sit out for a few hours or even over night and then they are tolerable.

    I do the same thing. I open the box and let them sit a day. Then just go nuts!

    Oh, the humanity!!!! I can just visualize the Peep Carnage! Peep blood splattered from floor to ceiling, little bits of of Peep intestines scattered everywhere and hanging from furniture, and bits of Peep hide flayed from their poor little bodies, gently blowing in the spring breeze.

    Kind of like a Sam Pekinpah movie. Maybe like "The Wild Bunch" or something like that....:wink:

    Jolly Rancher jelly beans are delicious - and rot your teeth almost the minute they go into your mouth.

    Jelly Belly jelly beans are the best but can be had all year round.

    I would agree with that - and you can be much more selective in what types you get, since they sell in bulk.

    I'm more of a Valentine's candy girl myself - I love those jelly cherry heart things that Brach's makes.

    Has anyone tried the Jelly Belly "Bertie Botts' Every Flavor Beans" of Harry Potter fame??

    Those things are hilarious. Some flavors include, Booger, Dirt, Vomit, Sausage, Earwax, and Black Pepper, among others.

    They so taste like they are supposed to! Even if you have never tasted earwax, they taste like one would imagine it would!
