Tis the Season For Creme Eggs – Top Seasonal Treats
Tis the season, for Easter Creme Eggs. Easter may be months away, but if they can sell Christmas items at Halloween, why not start each holiday early. The Cadbury eggs are my biggest weakness. I can't go past a display without grabbing at least two. I could eat a dozen of these creamy, chocolatey pieces of heaven. Maybe it's because you can only buy them certain times of the year. What other seasonal items taste so good?
Cadbury not only makes the delicious creme eggs but they have the chocolate mini eggs at Easter too. It's hard to choose between the two. Usually my grocery bag contains one of each. Thank goodness they are only available at Easter or I'd have a 'Honky Tonk Badonkadonk.'
Although I'm not a fan of the marshmallow peeps, I'm in the minority. Thousands of these sugary treats are sold every year. With their popularity, you can now find peeps at Easter and Christmas.
Is it the taste of the thought behind conservation hearts? These pieces of candy are popular at Valentines Day. I'll swap mine with chocolate any day.
The good thing about Girl Scout cookies is you can freeze them. Often we buy a bunch of boxes each year. The trick is to hide them at the back of the freezer so they last longer than a week. Which Girl Scout cookie is your favorite? We usually get several boxes of each kind.
St Patrick's Day gives us more than green beer and leprechauns. It's also time for McDonald's Shamrock shakes. Oh the minty flavor. I can almost taste it already.
Summer wouldn't be complete without a funnel cake from your local fair. Sure, you can buy the mix and make it at home, but it's just not the same. How do you top your funnel cake? Powdered sugar, fresh strawberries, apples or just plain?
Fresh fruit and vegetables are the highlight of summer. Especially a fresh piece of corn on the cob, topped with melted butter and salt. Its the one food I can't eat quietly. My husband won't let me eat corn in public for fear of embarrassment.
