Well, the whole affair was not much of an "extravaganza
". In fact, the trip was was pretty disappointing. It would appear that Cost Plus
has less of a selection of specialty chocolate at Easter because they have so many Peeps
*, jelly beans, and rice
candies taking up valuable space on the shelves.
The good news was that they were having a sale on selected Cadbury chocolate, so I loaded up on six Turkish Delights
. They are a absolutely heavenly and beat the pants off of Canada's Big Turk
. Sadly, the other Cadbury bars that they had were the Fruit and Nut and Dairy Milk that you can find at Walmart for much less than the sale price at Cost Plus. The only Canadian bar was Coffee Crisp
, which I snapped up. I also picked up a few other bars: Big Hunk
(made in California), Toffee Crisp
(made by Nestle in England), and a Cherry Mountain
which I was hoping would be similar to a Cherry Blossom
but can see from the website that it is not.
Today I will hit up Walmart. I am really hoping to find some Cadbury Mini Eggs. I asked the Yank husband if he has seen them here in the States, but he just went off on a tangent about how gross he finds the Cadbury Creme Eggs to be. He was not much help. As an aside, do they still play the Cadbury Easter commercials back home? The one with the rabbit that is clucking like a chicken?Update
: I just learned that Hershey's
holds a license to manufacture some Cadbury's products in the states. Quite likely I will find Mini Eggs at Walmart!*I am still laughing at that link!
