A BIG one Pulaski! Not the tiddly little pebbles I've been seeing around here.

You know the ones that don't actually have that much chocolate, lots of wrapping around them and extra choccies round the side....

I don't think I have EVER seen one since I moved to the USA. Except for the odd imported one at "British" shops that is.

As for easter stuff in general, well, that's been on sale since Christmas.

Milk chocolate, ..... sweet, with a hint of cocoa flavoring, but mostly just sweet.

I have found this weird as well, over here in the land of choice and plenty there are no easter eggs! or hardly any, I saw a cadburys egg at Target, one that at home in Tesco would be in a 3 for a £1 offer, and it was $5.49!

Lots of tiny little eggs and peanut butter eggs! but my kids will be disappointed as I am with the lack of choice over here in this department.

I found a Thornton's white chocolate egg in TJ Maxx a couple of weeks ago. It is this years use by date, so not an old one. I'm not sure if "World Market" will do larger chocolate eggs, but may be worth a try.

This was our haul from last year, I get them from an Irish store that imports them from the UK. The guy usually does me a deal and I always haggle with him for a better price

No Eggs in mugs I'm afraid, the kids would complain anyway as they just want the CHOCOLATE!

I did see the small eggs in bunny egg cups a few years ago though.
