I /love/ cadbury creme eggs, though I know it’s not a favorite for a lot of people. I also enjoy Dove chocolates, so if that advances over the eggs I’m ok with that. And now I’m torn. I like both of these, too. I put my vote in for the Taffy (just as long as I don’t get a banana) since, if I’m looking for a chocolate with a crisp, my go-to is Crunch. I also voted Now & Later, but I don’t think they’ll beat a Reese’s product. And of course, Skittles! I eat them until I start to feel sick, haha. Reply Cynthia March 20th, 2012 I can’t believe Cadbury Creme Eggs is ahead of Dove! Yucky super sweet sliminess is beating out smooth rich chocolate? Really? What’s wrong with you people? Reply Peter March 20th, 2012 I voted for Cadbury, even though it’s the caramel eggs I like. Also went with Reese’s Pieces (easy choice), Laffy Taffy (banana is my favorite; who eats Krackel anyway? I’ve never seen one outside the little ones on Halloween) and Skittles (again, no contest). Reply Marilee March 21st, 2012 I think DOVE is 100% better than the much to sweet Cadbury egg..Come on now people,VOTE For DOVE!!!! Reply Eick March 21st, 2012 @Cynthia – didn’t see Dove mobilize their Twitter or Facebook fans and ask for their support, in past brackets that’s been the key to victory. Reply Cynthia March 21st, 2012 What a shame – I had Dove going all the way to the end. Dove sure did drop the ball on this one.
