Easter Addictions...

This is the worst time for dieters and yet the most wonderful time of yr for them and the rest of the world... because they have officially brought out the




REESE'S EGGS!!!!




Some may think what's the difference between these and regular PBC? What you say? I'll tell you. MORE PEANUTBUTTER!!! If you look at those regular cups (don't get me wrong.. I wouldn't turn one down) they have a bigger percentage of chocolate around the edges so the ratio of chocolate and pb is more in the chocolate favor. However with the eggs, the chocolate covers the pb but only the pb. No extra edges or ridges. And the pb.. what did they do differently this time around to make them so darn irresistable? It's crumblier.. and has a tad salty taste which blends beautiful to the thin coat of chocolate. *sigh*


I want a Reese's Peanut Butter egg.... that's protein right?

When I saw your post title, I thought sure it was going to be about Cadbury Mini Eggs. Maybe that's just my Easter Addiction! I try to wait until the very end of the season to buy them so I'm not eating them for 6 weeks straight! I know what you mean about the Reese's eggs though,they are definitely better!

Ugh! Shannon- Andy & I are trying to eat better & avoid the sweets! What are you doing to me????

Andrew & I normally just go from 1 shape of Reese's to the next. You know, Christmas trees to hearts, to eggs to pumpkins. We have even been known to buy a whole case & munch on it over the summer when there's a break in the goodness. But I do have to admit- the eggs are the best shape of all, & only about 100 times better than a normal PBC. Nuts- now I want an egg too (or 6!)

P.S. When will you be in Safford, & for how long?

I agree with you on this one! The more peanut butter the better. I like to get the big cups for that very reason. :)

WOW!!! So THAT'S why those eggs are sooooo good! I'm glad you figured that out for me! I haven't had a pb egg in a looooooooong time (no Reese's pb ANYTHING in Singapore!....Can you believe that?! That is the only major flaw I found with Singapore....true story!) so I am certainly looking forward to getting my paws on some of those this year! Thanks for the heads up! Is Easter candy already on the shelves? Why am I such a cave-woman?! I need to go to Target IMMEDIATELY!

OHh I love PB cups too. And looking at the picture makes me want to eat a couple now. I find it best if I dont have any of them in the house I can resist the urge. The hard part is to resist the urge when I'm in the store and there's a million of them on the shelves. :)

Shannon, I LOVE Reeces Peanut Butter cups but I have to agree with you there is something about the eggs that are SO much better and you can't help but eat them.

I am addicted to Easter candy. I don't know why, but it tastes sooooo much better than Christmas, Halloween, or Valentines candy. When I was pregnant with M, I ate a bag of robin eggs every day for weeks. Too bad I don't have that excuse this year.
I'm REALLY trying to stay away from the Easter candy, but just looking at that picture makes me salivate. Reeses are my ultimate weakness. Maybe I can buy some and get M to police me. :)
