Part 2 of My Easter Candy Review: Waddles Milk Chocolate Egg, Zachary Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs, & Post-Easter Recap
Junk Food Nation, Easter is over, which means Lent is over, which means it’s time to take stock on how the past few days and weeks have gone for me.
1) I’ve survived without Tiny Tower, Pocket God, Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, Fruit Ninja, or Draw Something for more than 40 days, and I think I’m sufficiently purged of those addictions. I feel like I deserve a medal or something. You have no idea how hard it was not to build another floor on my tower or give my fake employee/residents new jobs, or make fake pygmies dance with fireworks in the background, or slice watermelon with a fake red-white-blue sword. In other news, iPhone games are ridiculous.
2) I finished up two fantasy March Madness leagues, a fantasy basketball league, and a fantasy hockey league, and lost every single one of them. Didn’t even sniff the championship in any league. Maybe my fantasy acumen has crumbled? Or maybe I’m spreading myself too thin? Whatever – it’s great fodder for this blog, right? Right guys? You like hearing about my fake fantasy sports teams, right? *crickets*
3) Easter Sunday, I managed to demolish a bagel sandwich, five pieces of fried chicken, a waffle, ten mini quiches, a slice of chocolate cake, two lettuce wraps, two scoops of rice, an assortment of pickled veggies, three slices of oven roasted pork, two heaps of corned beef, two slices of lemon meringue pie, and a handful of date crumble. Oh yeah, and beer and soda and other shizz. And I STILL can fit into my pants for work (ignore my heavy labored breathing).
It’s Monday, and it’s a new day. Today we’ll finish up my very brief Easter candy review. Here’s yesterday’s post. The first of today’s junk food: Waddles Milk Chocolate Egg! (Purchased at Walgreens)
Waddles Milk Chocolate Egg is your standard Easter novelty. Nothing special flavor wise, but definitely has interesting impact. When I cracked the egg open, my demented mind expected the little ducky to be alive or something, and I almost dropped the damn thing.
The thin outer chocolate shell was your standard tasty milk chocolate. The little ducky inside was like a stale, chewy Peep. Marshmallow flavor? Not really. It didn’t bite open to reveal the white marshmallow inside – the whole thing was just tough, stale, and not very tasty.
Kids will enjoy this because the little bird inside is a very cool effect. But when I popped the entire chick into my mouth and chewed? I felt like a T-Rex. And I don’t really like feeling like a T-Rex.
Finally, Zachary Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs!
Sidenote, Easter Bunnies can never be drawn quite right, can they? Check out some other horrifying Easter Bunnies.
Zachary Chocolate Covered Marshmallow Eggs were also purchased at Walgreens, and I give Zachary credit for not buying into this whole Save The Planet thing and just going full gusto with the styrofoam containers! WOOHOO POLYSTYRENE FOREVA!
Anyways, these were pretty good. The thin outer chocolate layer was sweet and very easy to bite through, but held together the egg as a whole nicely. Inside, the marshmallow was light, fluffy and not too sweet. VERY fluffy in fact – pillow-y, even. When stretched, the marshmallow came apart like chewed gum – which is exactly what it should do. Good texture, good elasticity.
When chewed in combo with the chocolate, these were exactly what I think of when I think chocolate covered marshmallows. Light, sweet, fluffy, and NOT heavy in the mouth or stomach.
Fake birds inside chocolate eggs? No. Styrofoam packet marshmallows? Yes.
