Cadbury Cream Eggs are now in season.
Our duty has never been more clear.

To gather together a sackful of such and allow them to join forces of chocolate, glucose, #4
dye, tin foil and heart
to become ULTRAEGG!!!
Or, y'know, snack on the little ones while they're in season..

Actually! You break this up in jest, but I remember a very serious discussion in Fairbanks over making one of those. We didn't, ultimately. We decided that a) we would be in a Coyote-Roadrunner Conundrum ("Now What?") and b) we preferred all the comparatively little eggs.
...BUT WE DRAW BREATH STILL. *lightning crash*

I have a parallel duty come Christmas. Y'see, Germans still believe in food that's only available seasonally. So that's the only time when echte Dominosteine are available.
I have a Dominosteine problem. ^_^

I didn't even know what it was until I looked it up just now. Looks good! I believe a confectionaire could make up a batch whenever he or she wanted, though. There isn't anything in it that should be too limited by season. So it's more like pecan pie than anything else: just expected during a season than really and truly seasonal like autumnal squashes. In other words, just like our horrible little guilt-inducing cream eggs yum.
We're kind of spoiled in the US, aren't we? The greenhouses of the world feed whatever weird out-of-season desires we have, and there's an enormous surplus of the same when it's IN season anyhow.

Yes, I think we're more than kind of spoiled in this country. We're more like spoiled-rotten 2-year-olds who've never once been disciplined for ill-behavior.

Maybe, but I was thinking of South America. As in, what unspoken Cold War era foreign policy did to it, and is still doing now: destabilizing and corrupting entire governments just so that ways U.S. trading companies get South American produce super cheap and in abundance. I think that's one of the top shames of United States history.
Of course... Preacher, choir, and so on.

I got me a couple boxes. Well, Ben helped by picking them up while I was busy. I'm probably losing my taste for these things? I'm not sure...
They seem to change as quickly as I do, by the year.

I haven't lost my taste for them yet. Too bad for my health. x_X
You're right, they have been slowly changing. It's the chocolate, I think. I remember them being more of a swiss-style, the usual Cadbury thing, but now they're... well, it's a milder type of milk chocolate that Hershey's uses. I mean, it is made in North America, by Hershey's under the authority from Cadbury, so... I don't know.

Maybe they cut transfats out of the fondant or something, because it seems incredibly stiff to me now, even when it's melty. Meh.
I won't forget the good times. <3
