For those of you still stuck on Valentine's Day, that is so next month.
It's time for Easter, people. And that means a whole host of new chocolate candies. At the forefront is Peeps' chocolate-covered marshmallows, a departure from the exclusively marshmallow cutouts made by Just Born.
I'll admit that I was hesitant to open the plastic packaging because of the chick-shaped chocolate blob on the front. Featureless chocolate figures tend to be amorphous in taste as well.
The chicks are available in dark and milk-chocolate, and look like a slightly blobbier version of the art on the package. They are soft to the bite and have the same consistency as marshmallow hearts or eggs from Russell Stover.
The two biggest surprises are that the interior marshmallow is yellow -- which is sligthly disconcerting to discover after taking a bite -- and one of the ingredients is chocolate liquor. This gives the candy the slight taste of a cordial.
