Last year I wrote a post about how Easter has the best candy of all the holidays. Well my friends, the Bunny has outdone himself again. When I was at Longs the other day, the same day I spotted the boxed wine connoisseur, I had the pleasure of purchasing my first Easter candy of the season. We’ll ignore the question of the legitimacy of selling Easter candy in January for the time being. That notwithstanding, in picking up a box of my good friend the Cadbury Cream Egg I noticed something different. The shiny, titillating foil wrapper was not the red, green, blue, and yellow I was used to. Instead, it was a fetching silvery orange. Could this be a new player in the confections game? Straight from the conveyor to the Big Show? Indeed it was. Ladies and gentlemen, I’m proud to introduce a new era in sugary confection. An update to one of the best known and loved sweets of all time. I give you the Orange Cadbury Creme Egg. Once again, Easter has bested its holiday brethren in the race for candy supremacy. Halloween…better luck next year. Thanksgiving…you never even try. Christmas…the gauntlet is at your feet. Dare you pick it up?
