As I See It

Easter Almond M & M’s Taste The Best

Did you know that Easter Almond M&M’s taste the best?  Yep.. they do.  Pink, light blue, light green and light yellow M&M’s taste better than the regular colors.   At least… that’s my opinion.   At one time, I worked, as a designer, for a craft company.  Marie Cole, a fellow artist kept a bowl of candy on her desk for those who dropped by to visit.  To say the least, she was the most popular designer.  It could also be the fact that she was the friendliest.   Folks would stroll past her design table frequently… just to chat?   And of course… I was no exception.  Everyone’s  favorite fair was Almond M&M’s.  They disappeared the quickest.


At Easter time , I strolled past her desk frequently to snitch a pink (my favorite) M&M.  I must have been pretty obvious… because she finally left a bag of Easter Almond M&M’s on my design table… and continued that favor for a number of years.

Yes, indeed…. Easter Almond M&M’s taste the best.  It’s must be the spring colors they use…. it’s like a breath of fresh air after a long winter of Red, Yellow, Blue, Green and Brown.

I was in the store today and discovered Almond Kisses wrapped in spring colored foils.   “They surely must taste better than the regular gold covered kisses,” I said to myself.   ” After all, the colors blend well with the Easter M&M’s.”  So, into the cart they went… along with the M&M’s, three bags of plastic eggs, and a new spring blouse.

When I got to the check stand… I discovered that someone had stolen two of my bags of plastic eggs out of my cart.  They were the two bags of special colors I had dug down deep into the deep  pile to acquire. They were the only two bags left of those unique colors.   Can you believe it?  Oh well… at least they didn’t  snag my Easter Almond M&M’s and my bag of Easter Almond Kisses.

I’m getting ready for our Easter egg hunt… which will be a week after Easter.  My kids and Grands  are going to the Other-Laws for Easter… so we’ll hold our little celebration a bit later.

Grab yourself some Easter Almond M&M’s and see if your don’t agree that they taste better than the regular colors.

Till Later,

P.S.  I also picked up a chocolate rabbit…. I’m going to sneak out and play Easter Bunny for myself.  This hare is a reminder of my youth when it was the only bit of candy  the Easter Bunny left.  Perhaps he didn’t know about Easter almond M&M’s nor Easter Almond Kisses.


Easter Bunny & Chicks On Easter Cards & Place Cards

The Easter Bunny and Chicks are probably the most recognizable icons for Easter.  As a child, Easter was an exciting time because the Easter bunny always left, a necklace, new socks, and patten leather shoes next to a Chocolate Rabbit.  Mom would dress her daughters up in their finest and march us all off to Church.

However, before we left for Church…picture taking was in order.


Me, at age 6


My sisters, Sheila and Janis.  For your olders gals…   remember the old box cameras?  You had  to have the full sun on the subjects…. even if their eyes watered and they couldn’t see.  Poor Sheila.    Now days… cameras are magical… no film… and the convenience of point and shoot.


The neighborhood gang posing before Church.  I’m in the back… in the middle.  My two younger sisters, Carma and Janis are directly in front of me.  All decked out.

Easter has certainly changed through the years.  It has grown from a simple gift of pearls, new socks, patten leather shoes and a little candy… to huge Easter baskets filled with “who knows what all.”

Easter bunnies an Easter chicks are in the stores right after Valentine.  So much for merchandising.   I’m just as guilty as the rest for buying into the Easter hype.  Besides… how else to you celebrate the coming of Spring after a long winter.

So, here’s my contribution to the Easter fray.


Here are 6 Easter 3×3 cards for you.   You can put them in the Easter baskets or in a Easter gift you want to share.


No Easter table is quite complete with out place cards.  Kids love to fill out the names and place them around the table.

I hope all of your past Easter memories are fond ones.

P.S. Can you believe… I still have my old Easter basket? (Mom use to save them from year to year.)  I think I will set it out and see if the Easter Bunny will fill it with hundred dollar bills.
