While I recognize that most people consider YESTERDAY to be the holiday, today is a near-religious experience for me.
Because Easter candy goes on sale today.
For those who don’t know, I’m ADDICTED to Cadbury Creme Eggs. Ever since I was a young child, I’ve been obsessed with their gooey, sugary filling and milk chocolate shell. Most adults grow out of their obsession – they are ungodly sweet, after all – but my obsession has actually grown with age.
For the last three weeks, I’ve eaten at LEAST one Cadbury Creme Egg per day. Today, I plan to visit every CVS, Walgreens, Target, and grocery store in a five mile radius to stock up on all the Cadbury eggs they have left. While my preference is for the original (the fondant-filled “yolk” egg), I’m also a huge fan of the chocolate cream and caramel-filled versions, as well.
My goal today: to acquire 100+ eggs.
Don’t worry – I’m not planning to binge on them. I’ve attempted to eat a dozen in one sitting before and I did NOT fair well.
In this case, my goal is to stockpile as many eggs as possible so that I can freeze them for the egg-drought that is the summer and early fall. It’s not until Halloween comes around and the “Scream Eggs” appear that I can get my fix again, so I’m going to take a chapter from the tale of The Ant and the Grasshopper and prepare now so I don’t suffer later. 🙂
On that note, bon appetit, my friends! Enjoy this beautiful Monday!
