This vs. That: Easter Candy – Brit, Team Ambrosia

Admittedly, the last Easter Egg & Candy Hunt that I actively participated in was just a couple of years ago and my competitive side was completely exposed for all of the world to see. Ever since I was a little kid, I have always taken my Egg & Candy Hunts very seriously and am happy to report that I’ve still got it in me, twenty some odd years later, and I ended up winning the egg hunt that day. Now while the glory of winning an Egg Hunt is always nice, the undeniable sugar coma that will undoubtedly follow is not the best of side effects! Throw in the added preservatives, chemicals and fillers that come with conventional chocolates and candies and you’ve got yourself a concoction of hyperactive kids just waiting to happen! That Easter Bunny isn’t looking so cute anymore now is it?

However, not ALL hope is lost! You can still absolutely give your kids an Easter Egg & Candy Hunt with healthier, “better-for-you” alternatives and were talking ALL about them today!
