caveat: i can only eat like one cadbury cream egg per year. for the most part i have a third grader's capacity for sweets, but more than one cadbury egg in a day could make me nauseous.

Same here. I'm glad you can still buy them in single format. One of our web designers here is 22 years old, and has been gulping them down all day. I am envious/disgusted.

This year my mom sent me Cadbury creme egg cookies that she found at Ross Dress For Less. I feel like that is the most my mom thing she could have done.

I'm all in on the Cadbury products for easter. Creme Eggs and Mini-Eggs are all I would eat if I had my druthers (and really wanted diabetes). It's probably lucky that they are not available in Japan though I'm still holding out hope that my mother is sending me some.

I eat like one Cadbury Creme Egg per year, but it's so worth it. Superb candy product.

I say peanut butter eggs are the best, but I feel like I might slowly be coming to the conclusion that Reese's peanut butter cups might be disgusting, whether they're in cup, egg or rabbit form.

That hasn't stopped me from porking out on them, though.

They're really good. I prefer the Cadbury Creme Egg, but if you eat more than one of those you feel loathsome (except for the 22-year-old web designer who sits across from me, and who's been eating them like mints). Peanut butter eggs are more acceptable for binging.

dude, you ask this every year and every year you fail to put mini-eggs on the menu. what are you, like, paid off by the peanut butter egg lobby?

Isn't the mini egg just a version of the creme egg? Are we thinking of different mini eggs?

I'm glad no one has criticized the lack of Peeps on this poll, because Peeps are terrible.

NO THE MINI EGG IS NOT A MINI VERSION OF THE CREME EGG. It has a hard candy shell, kind of like a giant M&M but actually good.

My husband would notice the lack of Peeps, not because he likes them but because they are made in his hometown. He has not yet successfully dragged me to "Peeps fest" though.

peeps are only good as exciting microwave experiments.

and NO, mini-eggs are not small versions of the cream egg. they are the PERFECT blend of chocolate inside and crunchy candy shell outside -- like and M&M with a gigantic center and a MUCH better candy shell. Possibly my favorite of all holiday candies (including all holidays in that statement)

thank you for reminding me to buy some mini eggs on sale. they only had tiny bags but that's probably for the best.

After Easter baskets timed out (I dunno, when I was around 14?) I no longer really encounter candy on Easter, being an atheist from a long line of atheists... I like Jelly Belly jelly beans but not any other not-tart-enough kind. I've never seen peanut butter eggs (though I like Reeses peanut butter cups). Peeps are beyond disgusting. I cannot eat Cadbury creme eggs.. they're too much like a real raw egg with sugar. So solid chocolate Easter bunny for me, even though chocolate is not really My Thing. It's okay. Halloween candy is less restrictive.
