For the love of chocolate.

Earlier this month when I got my Keurig coffee maker and then a laptop for my birthday, I thought my life was complete.  Seriously.  I said to myself “Self, this is as good as it’s going to get!”  But, I was wrong.

If you know me, then you know I have a love of all things chocolate.  I can’t help it, it’s actually in my blood.  My Dad seriously eats Mounds candy bars for breakfast, pinky swear! I digress.  The saddest thing about my chocolate addiction is not the fact that it requires me to workout out like a maniac, but that my favorite candy is only available for 2 (maybe 3) months out of the year.  These limitations cause me to hoard candy, and slap the hands of anyone who dares to touch the bag.  Yes, that includes small children.  What could be so delicious?

Since it’s only November, we have at least 3 more months until we see these on the shelves (and I secretly eat them in my bathroom to avoid sharing), right?  Wrong!  Wrong?  Yes, I said wrong!  Yesterday, Ange made the greatest discovery of all time, behold:

No, people you are not seeing things!  Those are Christmas Cadbury Mini Eggs!!  Amazeballs.  Seriously Amazeballs.  My life is now complete.  But, it gets even better!  When Ange realized the love for Cadbury Mini Eggs stretched the blogosphere far and wide, she decided to spread the Hanukkah cheer, and give some away!  No, I’m not Jewish, but Ange is, and those are just details anyway.  Anyjew.  She is giving away 5 bags!!  So, click on her fabulous button to find out how you could possibly win these 5 bags of chocolatey goodness.

P.S.  If you enter because I sent you there, and you win, can I have a bag?  Just one?  Pretty please with Cadbury Mini Eggs on top?

LOL I have to agree these are the best ever!!!! Have you tried googling them to see if you can purchase before Easter? I mean now it's not an issue but before did you ever google it? I have a google addiction :)

How funny! I cannot stand Cadbury Eggs they may be the one candy I can't stand! Ha!
I do, however, love the Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs at Easter, the pumpkins at Halloween, and the trees at Christmas.
Perhaps they should come up with a Peanut Butter turkey?! That would be perfect!

Shell said...

Oooh, I love those. The chocolate is so creamy.

Ange said...

I laughed this wheezy like laugh when I got to "anyjew". Jason thinks I may have issues.

Good luck in the giveaway!!!

Super great find! It looks like you should be all set until girl scout cookie season when you can hide in your bathroom and eat thin mints.

Wondering what your review is of your very Nutella birthday?

I can totally understand your love of those tiny choco-eggs, they're addictive! But they're so popular up here in Canada that they're available ALL year round. That's right, you heard me....the Cadburry bunny is always in my hood.

I think AMAZEBALLS may be my new favorite word. Just need to think of which situations I can use it in now!

Soooooooo.....I think that Mounds for breakfast is a GREAT idea. See, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the dark chocolate. Milk chocolate, not so much. In fact I even sort of hate it. But the dark? I am in love. But you know what I really want? For the Mounds and Almond Joy to mate and here's what you get: Dark chocolate, almonds, coconut. YUM.
I am SO happy for you that you have now found 2 seasons of your candies. I know how good that can feel. :)

Mommy on the Spot said...

OMG! I love those, too!! And now they come at Christmas?! WIN!

I would send them all to you :-)

AaronandLisa said...

Those have to be my FAVORITE chocolate of all time!

Amanda said...

I did the wheezy laugh at "anyjew" too! Actually, I'm still doing it.
Amazeballs....I'm so going to find a way to fit that word into my performance review at work.

Jen said...

Okay, I just found a difference between us, I'm sorry to tell you, but I just don't like those! Not sure what it is, but I can not eat them.

Do you hate me now? ;)

Lil' Woman said...

I love those eggs but I can't look past th Anyjew....you crack me up!

Lacy said...

Lol, my husband LOVES those. And this last Easter, they were impossible to find up here. My Mom had to send them from Mississippi. We finally found the little bags at Rite Aide and bought an entire box full. I'm exicted for these, stocking stuffer for my hubby!!

And yes, life is not complete without a Keurig.

Erin said...

I have actually never tried these. Is that a bad thing? Will you still love me? I am heading over to Ange's place now to enter!

;-)

Erin said...

oh my mother in law would love this!!! I should surprise her with a bunch ha ha ha! She loves them!

I just make my pictures small and then drag them around until they look good. I am not sure if there is any tips to it!

You are so good for my self confidence! Thank you for your kind words! Maybe some day I'll be as fast as you!! :)

PS - I saw the Cadbury Mini Eggs at Walgreen's and thought of you!!

Christa said...

Heidi said...

I can't believe it took Cadbury so long to figure this out! 'Bout time.

Ashley said...

I heart Cadbury Eggs too!!! They are my absolute fav candy of all time!! I was also so excited to see these bad boys out making a special holiday appearance before their regularly scheduled Easter season. YUM!

Llama said...
