So, those DAMN Cadbury Mini Eggs…….
They are the DEVIL in a beautiful spring-colored egg-shaped disguise.
I have a problem with them. A HUGE problem. But I rationalize it by saying it is only a SEASONAL problem. Every year, about a month and half before Easter, they are EVERYWHERE. I hold off for as long as I can, and I always end up buying them – but I hunt for those individual sized bags instead of the regular sized bags – because let’s face it – ANY bag is MY individual sized bag. Not great for my addition OR my waistline.
But I’m also budget conscious. So, every year I have a plan. Hold off as long as I can, and if I do relatively well, I hit CVS the Monday morning after Easter and clean house with those individual bags. This year – I scored 53.
….But they were the individual ones.
But I’m ashamed to tell you, as of May 19th, they have LONG been gone. Like gone nearly 3 weeks ago.
Part of me is embarrassed by my consumption, but the other part is PISSED that I didn’t work harder to score more. Then there’s that part of me saying, “Oh, hell….they are horrible for you. You’ll get fat. You’ll be mad at yourself.”
I hate that voice.
The only way I can reconcile that voice is if they are GIVEN to me. That doesn’t count. Oh, you didn’t know? Calories don’t count in chocolate when given to you as a gift. That would be rude to not consume them enthusiastically and almost immediately.
And I was NOT rude.
In fact, I was SO NOT RUDE that one night I felt asleep with the bag that had been given to me….in my bed. With the mattress warmer turned on. But not to worry, I salvaged most of them the next morning.
I have some good news and some bad news.
The bad news first: Turns out those suckers are NOT seasonal and can still be purchased.
The good news: They still offer them in those individual bags. (Those pre-portioned bags regulate guilt, I swear.) Below is my affiliate link you can get them through for that colleague, friend…or yourself.
So, share with a friend…..or hoard them.
I won’t tell.
