I like Peeps, Jordan Almonds and jelly beans.
Easter is an exciting time of year for chocolate and candy lovers, but those sugar-fueled thrills can quickly turn into disappointment if your basket is filled to the brim with Cadbury Creme Eggs and pastel-colored candy corn.
According to CandyStore.com, Creme Eggs are the absolute worst Easter confection, followed closely by “Bunny Corn.” The online candy retailer’s list of the 10 most disappointing Easter treats is based on the results of a survey taken by 23,000 customers.
Creme Eggs used to be a real crowd-pleaser, but a lot of people were upset when Cadbury swapped the Cadbury Dairy Milk Chocolate shell for a “standard chocolate mix” back in 2015, following the company’s acquisition by Kraft. Others complained about the goopy filling, while some pointed to the egg’s poor ergonomic design.
One customer wrote, “The flavor is not horrific, though not good either, but it’s just a total mess. There’s no good way to hold it.” Another commented, “My sister loved these as a kid. My mom made her eat them with a knife and fork because they made such a mess.”
As for the Bunny Corn, well, that’s pretty self-explanatory. People either love or hate candy corn, regardless of whether it’s being marketed as Cupid Corn for Valentine’s Day, Reindeer Corn for Christmas, or Freedom Corn for the 4th of July. “Here we go again, candy corn changes some colors and we’re supposed to forget they’re nasty,” one customer wrote.
Marshmallow Peeps—yet another divisive sweet—are the third most hated Easter candy. (But if you’re a marshmallow advocate, you can make a small charitable donation by April 8 for a chance to win a tour of the Peeps factory, as well as $250 to spend on your fill of sugary chicks and bunnies.)
