Easter is less than one month away!
This year is kind of strange– Valentine’s Day was on the same day as Ash Wednesday, and Easter falls on April 1st which is also April Fools Day! Strange.
I’ve always wondered why Easter doesn’t have a set date? Why does it change every year? If you know the reason, please tell me!
Something else Easter-related that has changed is the type of candy that I buy for Easter baskets. I use to by allllll the crappy candy– the high-fructose-corn-syrup-loaded jelly beans, the hundred ingredient candy bars, the artificially-flavored creme-filled eggs. That was back when I didn’t know any better.
Now, if I don’t make the treats myself (like these dark chocolate mango coconut candy bites) then you’ll find me reading labels like a hawk in the candy aisle at a natural market looking for safe treats. I look for goodies that are:
- Low sugar (not always possible)
- Contain NO artificial colors or dyes
- Contain NO additives or preservatives
I need to know exactly what every ingredient is on the label, no exceptions!
