Soooooo...I am 23 years old and yes, my mom still gives me (and my sister, who is 21) an Easter basket every year. This was my first Easter as a *vegan* and that made for a trickier-than-usual hunt for Easter goodies but my mom came through!
When she gave me my basket last night, we had just returned from a weekend getaway and, after over-indulging, the LAST thing I needed was sweets.
But I did not let that stop me.
Part of my assortment this year was an Easter confectionary selection from Allison's Gourmet. It was PHENOMENAL.
I sampled two chocolate eggs, which had a rich, authentic dark chocolate flavor, subtly enhanced with not-too-much coconut and blackberry (in separate eggs, to clarify); I then made my way on to the salted chocolate brittle--had waaaaaaayyyyyyyy too much of that. Then had more too much of that.
I then thought, well, I have to try my Etsy Hippiecakes chocolates. My mom got me orange, lemon and mint-filled chocolates, and the orange ones were definitely my fave...so, so good. I only wish that their centers were colored instead of white, which is how Jenny advertises them in her Etsy shop, but they were still tasty!
The last thing I have to try in my basket is a truffle from Sugar Kisses, a local bakery that offers vegan goods.
I just might sample one tonight...
