Best Easter Candy To Put In Your Basket This Holiday

Changes

By Greta Zwaan

I sought for joy in peace, and rest to ease my weary mind,
Stressed out by such a heavy load, rest I just had to find.
My endurance could hold no more, my limits had been met,
I needed time to stand aside, sweet time to just forget.

But where to find the road to peace, an obscure trait to me;
My hectic lifestyle can't comprehend a way to set time free.
I've always rushed from A to B with no side glace allowed,
I had my life so well controlled; in truth, I felt quite proud.

No one could tell me what to do, I was a self-made man;
My schedules were controlled by me, I had a thorough plan.
'Twas good when all things went my way and no one interfered;
I had no one to answer to, my way was always cleared.

But years of this brought me no joy, though fortunes I'd amassed;
It seemed that all the things I owned would oh, so soon be past.
I had no friends that knew my plight, I kept myself at bay,
They all had troubles of their own; besides, what could they say?

They envied me with all my wealth, they never saw my pain,
I had life altogether, what more was there to gain?
But loneliness is terrible and emptiness is sad,
There seems no purpose for each day, no reason to be glad.

So now I wait; why? I don't know, but life for me must change.
There must be more than fortunes, a way to rearrange.
There has to be a purpose, and someone surely knows,
Why life is complicated, and days so full of woes.

Perhaps you have the answer, perhaps you know the route,
Perhaps you've traveled here before; if so, please help me out.
If need be, I'll be patient, I'll even take advice;
I'll gladly make the changes, no matter what the price.

I don't need independence, I've had my round of that;
I long for understanding, to know just where I'm at.
Someday I hope to thank you because you saw my need,
Perhaps with greater meaning, with purpose, not with greed.

I don't know how I got here, what lies ahead of me,
I'm grateful there'll be changes, I'm grateful to be free.

From classic chocolate bunnies to exciting jelly bean flavors, there are plenty of sweets for the Easter Bunny to choose from. It’s that time of year when heart-shaped everything makes way for all the bunny- and egg-shaped goodies you could want. Some are returning favorites, some are brand-spanking new—but one thing’s for sure: These Easter candies are going to make you rethink what goes in your Easter basket this year.

 

Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Bunny Kit

 

Skip the marshmallows and basic candy bunnies to make something the whole family will actually enjoy. Make your own Rice Krispies Treats and use the included bunny-shaped mold to achieve the desired shape. Once the treats are cooled down each kit comes with icing and jelly beans for decoration. Their Instagram caption said, “Treat someone special with our favorite kind of Easter egg: one that’s made with Rice Krispies (& sprinkles are always a good idea, too)!”

 

 

Butterfinger NestEggs

 

These chocolate eggs pack all the flavor and crunch of a typical Butterfinger candy bar and for those true chocolate lovers, Ferrero makes them in Crunch form too. Their Instagram caption said, “Hiding Butterfinger Nesteggs on Easter morning is the perfect way to practice hiding your full size Butterfinger bars the rest of the year. Where’s your favorite hiding spot?”
