Ugh. It’s not time to get up is it? SAY it ain’t so. . . The Monday after Easter is a sugar hangover day, or it is if you’ve been into the Easter candy, with or without basket. . .
Easter 2023 introduced some trendsetting candy ideas, but nothing could topple the eternal trinity of REESES, Cadbury and Peeps…
Coincidentally, Peeps and Cadbury Creme Eggs also made the Worst list. . .
The worst chocolate on earth is a favorite in the US of A, that would be Hershey’s, in egg form or kiss form and the worst candy, jelly beans is a must in Easter baskets…..
Yes, and: Chocolate eggs will cost the Easter bunny 15% more than last year, according to data from consumer intelligence company NIQ. High inflation is also why some families might experiment with painting and dyeing eggs this Easter.
But after the fun dyeing of the expensive eggs, then what? They’d have been out too long to eat, but at least they’re pretty. . .
But here I go, my mind is wandering. Why? Sugar. Copious amounts of sugar. That’s what happens with sugar hangovers. It’s a miserable addiction. Full disclosure though, I think Cadbury Creme eggs are gross and peeps make my throat close up. And it will be a cold day in Hell before I eat candy again–that’s a given. . . 🙂
Yet even in the midst of tectonic shifts in political landscape, hate-filled non-stop assaults from all forms of media, with more wars and rumors of war, with weather careening out of control, it’s helpful to have that Day of Sugar with its highs and lows, so we can be reminded of the Teachings of the Hangover, . . . and what are those? That some days are for getting through as best we can, planning and hoping for a better day in the tomorrow. After the high of Easter, we meet on the day after to level out, hydrate, and return to normalcy, recovery and lots of random musings about the state of things.
This is our Monday open forum here on NV. What’s on your mind?
