A couple of days ago I received this text from a friend:
'Apparently, (and I haven't confirmed this yet), they are now making Christmas Cadbury Mini Eggs'.
Well. This is going to be a problem. I may or may not have mentioned my problem with the Easter variety of these delicacies. There was an incident in 2006 or 2007 where I went off the deep end and was eating them for breakfast. To make matters worse, the day after Easter these bad boys go on a deep discount. Naturally, I have a fear of not being able to eat them to my hearts content as they are only seasonal, and have to buy them in bulk.
The draw to these pieces of heaven is not hard to understand: crisp, thin candy shell in a variety of 'spring is just around the corner' colors, rich chocolate which is some sort of perfect balance between milk and dark chocolate. I'm sorry, I just drooled.
Most experts would agree that the best way to truly enjoy these is by sucking on them and letting them melt in your mouth so as not to disrespect the experience of the deliciousness.
Upon further investigation it seems that these are regularly available in Canada and the MIGHT be available in the US. However, this does not mean I am off the hook. Did I mention my father in law lives in Canada and comes here every year at Christmas time? Swoon.
