MIKE AND IKE® and HOT TAMALES® Easter Candy Review

Easter is just around the corner and it is time to start getting Easter baskets together.  We love jelly beans and chewy snacks around here!  When we think about Easter goodies, jelly beans are always on the list.  Recently, we had the chance to review some Mike and Ike jelly beans, Easter treats, and Hot Tamales jelly beans.  We love Mike and Ike candies!  Chefy is addicted to the Hot Tamales and Kat and I love the fruit flavor Mike and Ikes.

The Mike and Ike Easter treats come in a 5 oz box and we have found them for about $1.00/box.  They have 5 delicious flavors such as Pineapple Banana, Strawberry, Grape, Cherry and Lemon Lime.  The Mike and Ike jelly beans are available in assorted fruits and Tangy Twister, and they also have Hot Tamales Cinnamon jelly beans.  They come in a 14 oz bag for between $2.50-$3.00.   

We filled plastic eggs with the jelly beans and we even baked some cookies with Mike and Ike Easter treats in them!  YUM!  Chefy ate the entire bag of Hot Tamales jelly beans within 2 days!  Kat has devoured most of the assorted fruit jelly beans, and the Tangy Twister jelly beans are in hiding because they are mine.  I love their tang!  One thing we have all noted about these jelly beans is that they are not as hard as some other brands we have tried.  Mike and Ike jelly beans are our new favorites!  

While you are out picking up goodies for your Easter baskets, look for Mike and Ike and Hot Tamales!
