The Only Kind of Vegetables You Ever Really Need

For a someone with a junk food jones, the arrival of spring is heralded not by the blooming of flowers and the budding of trees but by an explosion of fresh, new, colorful life somewhere else: The grocery store candy isle. Yep, it’s that magical time of year when the Easter candy is in bloom. Take this from the Lindt company, for example:

At no other point in the year are you going to get chocolate carrots!

Carrot shaped and foil wrapped, the Lindt Chocolate Carrots are a solid mix of milk chocolate and hazelnut. It’s the taste combo that has made Nutella so popular lately and Ferrero Rocher a Christmas holiday seasonal favorite.

Also, you kind of pull each carrot from the box like you pull carrots from the ground and they come on little sticks so you can eat them without the chocolate melting all over your hands. Nice touches.

Okay, the bottom line is that if you’re craving  the chocolate/hazelnut taste, stick with the other guys. I mean, Lindt’s Chocolate Carrots are okay but you’re going to find better candy snacks out there. On the other hand, if you’re looking for something fun for your kid’s Easter basket you could do a whole lot worse. Chocolate carrots are just kind of cool. They’re like chocolate bunny food!

Wait, chocolate carrots and chocolate bunnies are both made of chocolate so is feeding chocolate carrots to a chocolate bunny actually forced cannibalism? I guess Easter candy shopping isn’t all fun and games. Sometimes you have to grapple with the tough questions.
