You can only eat one Cadbury egg before going into a diabetic coma.  You can eat an entire bag of Reese's Peanut Butter cups.

Been there, done that. Still can't handle Cadbury, but I will commit homicide for a Reese's.

I actually prefer Easter for the hard-boiled eggs. Yes, my cholesterol is outrageous.

After getting to the author claiming that reese's cups in a different shape don't have their own distinct flavor I know I don't need to take anything else they say seriously.  If you cannot recognize how changing the shape and ratio of ingredients changes the overall experience of a piece of food you should find a different job mr/mrs food blogger wrong guy.

So you celebrate the death and resurrection of a nice Jewish boy by eating pig. If I were you, I'd invest in some asbestos underwear.

His whole case is based on lies, namely that there are no special treats that come out for Halloween (there farking are), and that god damned jelly beans and Peeps are superior, special candies (they farking aren't). But it's a rage click article, so kudos for getting the rage, I guess.

The ham is the whole point: you're proving you're not Jewish. Like if the Nazis bust into your house on Easter, you can be all, "But we've got ham!" and they'll leave you alone.

I mean, the candy is virtually identical, it's just packaged differently. (shrug)

I really wouldn't give the edge to either one. Halloween candy seems to have more variety, but Easter candy has been catching up there, offering stuff that didn't used to be "Easter" candy, like gummies and shiat like that.

I haven't seen too many Halloween jelly beans, except for the Jelly Bellies, which are packaged in special "Halloween" themed containers.

It's all pretty much the same with variations in size, shape, "fun size" vs. full size, etc. No need to argue over this. All the candy holidays are awesome.

Ooh, that sounds good. Never had much horseradish living at home, but I'm curious about horseradish condiments lately.

Fantasy Fest begins tonight. Somehow I just never got a drunken naked week of debauchery vibe from Easter so Halloween wins! Here are all the rules that are routinely broken and ignored.

Here are a few rules. The City of Key West Police Department summarizes below the code of conduct you need to abide by.
Please review the following rules and regulations that are enforced during the Festival:
Nudity is ILLEGAL and is NOT allowed on public property or in public view at any time.
Lewd acts on public property or in public view are strictly ILLEGAL and NOT tolerated.
Body painting is allowed but must be done in enclosed or screened in areas, entirely out of public view. Painted female breasts must be covered with pasties or bikini top.
Please wear a cover-up to avoid ILLEGAL exposure on public property and on all city streets.
No glass containers are allowed. Drink from paper or plastic cups provided by bars and vendors.
Please stay inside the venue's party area while you are carrying open alcoholic beverages.
Trash and recycling containers are located for your convenience.
No backpacks, coolers, packages, water guns, weapons or replica weapons will be allowed.
The Police Department works diligently for crowd well-being. Our primary goal is a safe festival.
Most important, please be courteous and patient with enforcement officers and with each other. We hope to enjoy another unforgettable Key West Fantasy Fest

I mean Easter is primarily a chocolate based candy holiday, IMO. Whereas Halloween has a wide berth of candies doled out.

Also, you don't go door-to-door begging for candy on Easter, unless you're weird, so the opportunity to score more candy on Halloween trumps Easter.

Think about all the candies that are 100% associated with Easter, and virtually no other time of year: Cadbury Creme Eggs. Jordan almonds. Peeps. Robin eggs. Cadbury Mini Eggs.

I already have two bags of the Harvest Mix squirreled away for T-giving.

I still recall the year we found bags of Watchamacallits on clearance after Halloween. Haven't seen a bag of them in fun size since. Same thing happened a few years later when Take 5 was a new product. We bought too many on clearance. I think I packed 1 in my lunch through Ground Hogs Day before we ran out. Couldn't resist peanuts, peanut butter, caramel, pretzels and chocolate.

There are Halloween Cadbury eggs (and apparently mini eggs). Peeps have already been shown to be in Halloween form.

So it down to Robin Eggs, which are just colorful Whoppers (aka last pick on the playground candy) and Jordan almonds, which are barely even candy. These are candies that don't exist at other times because no one wants them.

Nothing to prove. You're going to buy better things for your own family than for strangers' kids. The only time of year I buy Hershey and Nestle products from the grocery store is Halloween. I don't celebrate Easter, but if I'm going to spoil my nieces and nephews, I'm getting goodies from the local chocolatier.
