Foil Wrapped Easter Eggs and Bunnies

Come one and all to acquire a stash of foil wrapped eggs or bunnies. Since we do not have wrapping machines this is the one time of year we bring in someone else’s chocolate. The makers of Mercken’s high quality chocolate have provided us with a group of choices this year.

In foil wrapped eggs there are bags of all milk chocolate or all dark chocolate – which unlike our pure dark chocolate is not dairy free. Also we have made up bags containing both milk and dark chocolate eggs. For foil wrapped bunnies we have bags of all milk chocolate, plus an added treat of a very few bags of peanut butter centres encased in milk chocolate. All are going fast, so stock up today.

In other Easter candy there are marshmallow eggs, marshmallow bunnies, chewy bunnies, malted eggs, gummy bunnies and a wide assortment of jelly beans. Lots of choices for Easter to complement our regular candy assortment.

Our once a year treat of coconut cream eggs are made and in store now. The two toned centres – representing the yolk and egg white – are hand dipped with care in milk chocolate. Sizes range from $2.89 to $7.50, with each price point being decorated in its own style of piped icing and icing flowers. Pick yours up while they last.
