|Why Yes That is a Stamp With My Sister's Face on It!|
On a completely unrelated not, for my journalism class this week, we had to write an Easter/Passover story, and seeing as how everyone loves the sweet treats Spring brings, I thought I'd share mine with y'all:
|And so the Debate over the Best Easter Treat Continues|
New Yorkers named Cadbury Eggs as their favorite Easter treat, according to an informal survey.
The caramel-filled chocolate sweet took 60% of the votes, with Marshmallow Peeps following close behind.
“During the Easter season I probably buy four or five caramel eggs,” said NYU sophomore Jen Barbosa. “Although when I was younger, I used to get an entire basket full of them.”
Unfortunately, 23rd Street’s shortage off eggs kept Barbosa from indulging in his favorite seasonal snack this year.
Both the CVS and Duane Reade on 3rd Avenue ran out of Cadbury Eggs two weeks before April 24th, according to store employees. However, they suggested Russell Stover Cream Eggs as a delicious substitute.
With a suggested retail price of $1 each, Cadbury eggs were 25¢ more than their Russell Stover substitute.
When the Peeps rang up, 75¢ was the total cost for five yellow marshmallow chicks.
“I hope the Easter bunny brings me Peeps in my basket,” said seven-year-old Oliver Jackson, while his sister, Sophie, expected pastel candy corn.
When describing why he loves Peeps, NYU sophomore, Michael Spinelli, said, “They are delicious, sugary goodness. Plus, you can watch them blow up in the microwave.”
