The day after Easter is the day that Russell Stover's seasonal candy goes to sleep until October. I love being able to walk into Walgreen's any time I need a little chocolate "fix" and pick up a caramel-filled egg or tree, whatever is available for only 50 cents each. From October to April, it's quite a magical time of year.
My mom used to buy the seasonal candy and my sisters and I always knew where her secret stash was (although now it has changed!). Once, we even left a whole bag of Russell Stover's strawberry chocolate hearts on the floor and our dog Minnie had no problem eating the entire bag! She was a tough thing and didn't seemed phased at all.
Last night, Israel and I were sitting around and I realized that this candy would soon be leaving for several months, so I told him we have to go stock up immediately before it's all gone!
We made a trip to our local Walgreen's, and Israel laughed at me as I grabbed at least eight or ten chocolate eggs. The best thing about buying them now is that they are half price! We giggled as I carried all of them up to the counter and paid for them, and tried not to look too embarrassed. I'm sure I fit the stereotype well as a pregnant lady with a huge pregnant belly buying all this chocolate.
I'm going to try and make them last at least a few days! ;)
