Look What the Bunny Brought - Day 3 - Milk Carton Candy

Milk Carton Reese's, Whoppers, Robin Eggs

One of the things I hate is how super-sized everything has become. It's hard to enjoy all 16oz of a bag of candy....I get a bit tired of it partway through the bag...sometimes I'd rather just have a few ounces and be done. That's what I like about these cute little 3.5oz boxes. It is a nice amount of candy at 2.5 servings per box. Do you remember the milk cartons from school lunch? This packaging is exactly like those milk cartons. Boxes like this are also great because most of the candy is 100% intact, no chips, smashed or ruined candy inside these cartons.

These are not the most exciting candies Hershey makes but they are nice classics that fit well in the Easter candy selection. Reese's Pieces Pastel Eggs (introduced in 1995) are enlarged Reese's Pieces with pastel colors for the holiday. They are a great candy, but I prefer the smaller pieces size over these gigantic peanut butter eggs. On the other hand, the Whoppers eggs and Whoppers mini Robin Eggs are too small in size for me, although a perfect size for children. I love malted milk, so I find this smaller size gives you more chocolate and sugary shell instead of that great malted milk interior.

I love the price on this candy too. These are great buys and portion sizes for $1.00. You can't go wrong adding these to any Easter basket.

What an excellent point about the package size. I have picked up and put down an sack of marshmallow-ish bunnies (?not sure what they are, sort of like circus peanuts in easter shapes) I don't know how many times, because I just want to taste ONE. And I really don't want to either eat the whole sack, or throw it away. So unpurchased, and untasted. I would pay the same price for a smaller package, seriously. Glad to hear that some candies are trying that out for holiday packaging.

Thank you for the comment! I wish more candy companies would go this route. I would be happy to pay more, as you say, and receive a smaller package. People do not need 2,000 calories worth of candy, when even these packages have more calories than anyone needs.
