lol.. I told Paul the other day I NEEDED a chocolate bunny. I haven't had one for years either Middie. I've always wanted one of those big solid milk chocolate ones. Maybe, if I'm very good next year I'll get one.

The chocolate bunny... I don't know who made it, it is what ever you got back about 30 years ago. The chocolate tastes different than the regular chocolate that you can get. I loved starting with the ears and I loved the fact that it was hollow, made the chocolate taste better to me.

Cadbury eggs run a close second with DW. I will take the white chocolate bunnies as a second to the Robins eggs.

Did anybody see BJ Novak on Conan Obrien about a year ago when he was talking about the Cadbury Egg conspiracy? That was pretty funny.

I like Starburst jelly beans. We had a dish of them sitting out overnight last night, and when I got home from work that morning, I scooped out a fingerload and popped them into my mouth. "Gross," I thought, "there's a fragment of Easter grass in my mouth." Then I remembered, we didn't have any Easter grass this year. I fished the interloping particle out to discover...a spider in its death throes. Bleah! My dad mentioned he was checking out the bowl of M&Ms nearby for spiders. I said, "Don't worry, they die in your mouth, not in your hands."

I'm the same guy who, when given a box of green Peeps declared, "Soylent Green is made of Peep...ple!"

That was cute. I liked the swimming pool one and the sesame street.

I love Easter candy! It's the best candy of the year.
Cadbury mini eggs (now made in dark chocolate!)
Cadbury cream eggs
Peeps (I like them a little stale)
Robin eggs
Dove dark chocolate eggs
M&M eggs (new, and tasty)
Nestle smartie mini eggs (British and Canadian treats)
