The five stages of grief- Cadbury egg style

You're probably familiar with the five stages of grief.  So you will know just how I felt today.

Anger - once 39 grams, now a mere 34.  How can they do this to us?


Acceptance - That's ok.  Who cares?  It's my favorite holiday treat, and I love it no matter the size.


Denial - I won't even miss those five other grams.  This is so good.

Depression - It's almost gone.  Sad.


Bargaining - I probably need two. After all, they're only 34 grams each now.



Thank you again, Mom, for the Easter package!!  
I think it goes without saying that Cadbury eggs are not on my boys' diet - these were just for me!
I actually made delicious, homemade Cadbury eggs once.  They tasted 100% exactly like Cadbury eggs, but that was in the old days.  If I try them again, additive-free, and they're any good, I'll put the recipe up.

    1. Dude when I made them I was so impressed with myself. I mean, they looked a little sloppy but when I took the first bite... It was like Tom Hanks in Castaway, but instead of making fire, it was Cadbury eggs.

  4. My husband and I are halfway through the Easter package my mother-in-law sent. We've saved the kids some of the candy, but we still have several days until Easter. Who knows what can happen in a few days!

    I would love to see the homemade Cadbury Egg recipe!

    1. You might as well finish it off and tell the kids you went for healthier baskets this year! :)

  6. Ha! I love this! I was just saying the other day how food has gotten smaller, but prices have stayed the same or gone up. Perhaps the thinking is that we will eat less, but I like your rationalization of needing another. ;) A mama's gotta have her treats! This is so cute, I'm going to need to share it!

  7. Love this! I would have to add at some stage my teeth start to ache from all the sugar... would that be the guilt stage too? :) Happy I found your blog!

  8. Too funny! I'm actually grossed out by their gooey center that looks like egg yolk but isn't. I bet I'd love them if I closed my eyes;)

  9. I would totally weigh 400 pounds if I didn't have the self control to STAY AWAY from those things at Easter time. They are just so good. Like those potato chips- no one can eat just one!!

    1. Luckily they don't sell them where I live. My mom sent me some, which is great since it forces me to limit them and I am immune to the post-easter sales temptation.

  10. Love it!!!
    I'm kind of obsessed with Cadbury Creme Eggs. I think you might appreciate my love letter to them from the last few years...
