A decent egg

Now that the Valentine's candy has been cleared from store shelves, the Easter chocolate is a-plenty. My favourite Easter treats are Cadbury Mini Eggs, and though they are now available all year round, there's something special about eating them with the onset of spring. My former co-teacher and I would gobble them by the bagfuls, chasing them with Starbuck's lattes, his a double, mine a decaf. We even tried the dark chocolate ones, but preferred the originals.

While browsing the aisles of Shoppers my eyes fell on that famous purple bag and my mouth started salivating...except it wasn't that famous bag, it was a bag of Life Brand Mini Eggs!
Of course I had to buy them and see if they matched up. After one egg, I didn't have that feeling that I always get eating real Mini Eggs. You know, the one where my tongue starts itching and I start drooling incessantly until I get another egg in my mouth. The Life Brand egg was more candy-ish and less chocolatey. The chocolate wasn't as smooth as Cadbury's either.

For me they didn't cut it. As spring quickly approaches [thank goodness!], I'll stick to my regular (over)indulgence.
