Today I shopped for candy. Easter is just a couple of days away and I needed to get out of the house for a bit. Now I try not to go too crazy with the candy for the boys. Just a few basics and a couple of fun extras for them to play with. As far as I'm concerned every basket needs only a few essentials when it comes to candy.
1. A chocolate bunny
2. Jelly beans
3. Cadbury Creme Eggs
4. Cadbury Robins Eggs.
That's it. Now to be perfectly honest, the boys don't care about what kind of candy they get. I could get them crap and it would make no difference to them. It just has to be sweet, but since I know I'm going to be eating it as well, I absolutely have to have the Cadbury Robins Eggs. The one thing I couldn't find at the store.
First, I slowly pushed the shopping cart up and down the Easter aisles scanning for the family sized bag of robins eggs. Then I picked up the pace and searched the aisles a second and third time. Next, I abandoned my cart and began scouring every end cap and center display. Finally a sales associate stopped me and asked me if I needed assistance. I told her what I was looking for and she showed me to the very last of the Cadbury Robins Eggs. They were hidden next to the Reese's peanut butter eggs. Only ten bags left. I grabbed two. One for me and one for the boys baskets. It took 20 minutes to locate them, but I got them!
