To celebrate Easter here in Finland, we went to the candy shop and bought our Easter eggs. The children here receive eggs about 10 times the size of these, but they’re filled with toys instead of cream. The woman who ran the candy shop didn’t speak one iota of English, so we had to rely on my (very) limited Finnish vocabulary. We ended up buying what seems to be the most popular dessert for this holiday. It’s a purple egg carton with four chocolate eggs wrapped in colorful foil, and spoons come with it as well. The eggs were filled with a white cream that almost tasted like frosting. It was a tad too much sugar for my liking, but it’s okay if you only eat it once a year. We enjoyed our chocolate, but we missed jelly beans & peeps!
One thought on “Happy Easter!”
We missed you here for Easter…ate some peeps in your honor!
