Hershey's Easter Candy Review and Giveaway!


Easter is just a couple weeks away and that means Easter egg hunts, the Easter Bunny and all kinds of fun Spring time Celebrations.  I remember when I was younger we would visit my dad's family up in Minnesota and we would go on Easter Egg hunts, hit Pinatas, ride around in a little red wagon and just have a great time!  I want to give Ashton the kind of amazing memories that I had growing up.  So far the most excitement he's had is an Easter Egg hunt each year and 2 years ago he met the Easter Bunny, but then again he's been too young to remember any of it up until now anyway.  Now that he's 5 years old we wanted to make this years Easter one he'll remember for years to come.  Of course part of that will include one heck of an Easter basket.  I've found that you can make a great Easter Basket without having to spend a fortune!  That's where Hershey's comes in!  What Easter Basket is complete without some Hershey's candies?

A little more about Hershey's new Easter candy!
According to their press release, "To ensure baskets are brimming this Easter Season, The Hershey Company is hopping down the trail with new bunny and egg-shaped sweets such as the Hershey’s Solid Milk Chocolate Snapsy Bunny, as well as traditional classics such as the Cadbury Crème Egg. Hershey is also partnering with Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment to celebrate Easter and the theatrical release of Hop with Easter treats inspired by characters from the live action/CG-animated comedy arriving in theaters April 1, 2011."
The Hershey Company always has the best selection when it comes to holiday candies and this Easter is no different!  To celebrate Hop and the Easter Season they've come out with adorable and delicious chocolate treats based on the movie including a New Hershey's Solid Milk Chocolate HOP The Movie Magic Bunny and more.  They also have some old favorites coming back this year including some of my favorites like Hershey's Kisses, Whoppers Mini Robin Eggs & Jolly Ranger Jelly Beans! All of Hershey's Easter Candy is sold exclusively at Walmart. For a complete list of Hershey's Easter treats, as well as Easter basket ideas, homemade crafts, games and delicious new Easter recipes visit www.CelebratewithHersheys.com.
 


My Review!
The wonderful people over at Hershey's sent us over some yummy Easter treats!  We received a pack of Strawberry Twizzlers Pull & Peels, 2 Cadbury Creme Eggs, and a package of Reese's Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter Eggs.  I've always loved Cadbury Eggs!  The chocolate and creme center is so creamy and delicious, it's heavenly!  The Reese's Pieces Eggs are the perfect size to fit into plastic eggs for Easter Egg hunts and even better to snack on while filling those little plastic eggs!  The Strawberry Twizzlers Pull & Peels come individually wrapped which is great for eggs, pinatas or any Easter game you can come up with!  While I found these to be scrumptious while eating one they tend to taste a little chalky after eating more than one.  
The Hershey Company has been the only kind of candy my family purchases for holidays like Easter, Christmas, Birthdays and other important Holidays because we know we'll never be disappointed! 

Giveaway Time!
One lucky Shopaholic is going to win one of everything I reviewed!  One Cadbury Creme Egg, One package of Strawberry Twizzlers Pull & Peel and One Reese's Pieces Eggs just in time for Easter!  This is a short giveaway so get your entries in quickly!
