So as you could probably tell from our last post (or if you’ve been following along on Facebook or Twitter), Justin & I have been road trippin’ it up these past few days. We are on a trip that took us to Virginia, DC and today Baltimore. When it’s all finished, we will have done four shoots in four days (all of which I can’t wait to show you!) and three mentoring sessions. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind to say the least, but this time around we’ve been able to take some time just for ourselves like our afternoon in Williamsburg. So we’ve been taking some time to soak it all in as well. This is key.
Over the Easter weekend, our hotel in Virginia decided to put bunny ears on the Lion fountain in the lobby. I guess to be more festive. This cracked me up to no end. And anytime you put bunny ears on anything, you can pretty much guarantee that we’re going to take a picture of it. So we instagrammed it up. I’m pretty sure this image below is what sealed the deal on that one billion dollar facebook buyout. I’m just sayin. :)
After we posted the picture, we were looking at it and realized it reminded us of those “everybody wants to be the Cadbury bunny”commercials. Which, let’s be honest, were their own little stroke of marketing genius back in the day. But then it also reminded me of Cadbury eggs, which I just happen to hate. Yes, I know hate is a strong word. And to be fair, they do have chocolate. So they do have their redeeming qualities. But I just can’t take the center filling seriously. Besides being that simple syrup goo you find in chocolate covered cherries, some genius at the Cadbury factory decided to color it white and yellow to make it look like the inside of an actual egg. And call me crazy, but anything made to feel like you’re eating an actual raw egg does not get a gold star in my book. And it makes me wonder if there’s some sugary equivalent of salmonella that we should be worried about. I mean, do I need to wash my hands after eating one?
No, for my money, the true champion of Easter candy eggs will always be Reese’s. Chocolate and peanut butter together again, just like nature intended. And I may be totally losing it here, but isn’t there just something about it being molded into the shape of an egg that makes these Reese’s 100x better than regular Reese’s?? Maybe the dome shape holds in flavor better.
It stirred up quite the debate. :)
Apparently, a lot of us have very strong opinions on who makes the better egg. And some people don’t think the best Easter candy is an egg at all. So I thought I’d post the question here to settle it once and for all.
Answer me this: what do you think is the BEST Easter candy and what do you think is the WORST? And….GO!
