I love that time of year when my favorite candies are served up in enormous portion sizes and formed into seasonally appropriate shapes. Halloween and Easter, to be more specific. I enjoy buying big bags of candy, then serving up individually wrapped delights to the guests at the bed and breakfast where I work on the Big Island of Hawaii. Most recently, during the big Easter candy season, I was absolutely delighted to find a York peppermint patty bunny.This thing was HUGE, and had my name all over it. It took me several sittings to make my way through it all, but in true York peppermint patty fashion, every single bite was cool, refreshing, and delicious.
I think I might have read the nutrition information, and I'm certain I gleefully ignored the calorie count and suggested serving size. I don't feel the slightest bit of regret for hogging this delicious confection all for myself without sharing even one bite. It was that good, and well worth it.
Now that Easter is over, it might be a little challenging to find a York peppermint patty bunny. Sorry to deliver such sad and crushing news, but on the bright side, Easter will come around next year and surely there will be more York peppermint patty bunnies.
