For those who have known me a while, you know why I get especially excited this time of year. As soon as Valentines day is cleared off the shelves of supermarkets around the US, they make way for the real Holiday that's approaching...Easter. With Easter, no one commercializes the giving of gifts. Oh, no, Easter is all about the Candy (yeah baby)! The greatest of all Easter candies being... Brach's Chicks and Rabbits. They are the upper class representation of Circus Peanuts. I guess the best way to describe them... sponge-like cotton candy. Although they come in three colors, the flavors are the same. However, I do for some reason prefer the blue ones, for me the texture is the best out of the three colors. My BFF Jenny prefers the yellows. My Hubbie eats them all equally.
Seriously Brachs should cut me a check for all the chicks and rabbits converts I have gained throughout the years. This picture is from when I was at BYU-I. I am at Harmony House #104 with my roomie Liz Lee (now Dixion). We binged on a bag of Chicks and Rabbits after she either 1. just finished a 4 plus hour phone conversation, 2. talked a friend out of committing suicide at some cabin somewhere in Utah or 3. just threw a her shoe at the window causing it to shatter. Liz is one of my dearest friends. Ricks Roomies are the best!
