Here Are Creme Egg Cookies And Easter Grass Twizzlers Because Why Not

Have you always wanted to grab handfuls of the plastic grass in your Easter basket and chomp on it? Have you always secretly wished that Cadbury Creme Eggs came in a form that you could pass off as a normal dessert instead of a chocolate egg? The answer to both of those questions is probably “no,” but this is America, where progress marches on whether we want apple-flavored licorice grass or not.

You can see from this photo that the tipster who sent those Creme Eggs in to The Impulsive Buy had them in his cart, because this food is simply impossible to resist. That’s my theory, anyway.


Meanwhile, over in the candy aisle, Twizzlers has introduced green “Easter grass” flavored licorice ropes, because regular Twizzlers are not gross enough as it is.


Time Out Chicago opened up a bag of this stuff, and the individual strands are loose, making it resemble plastic Easter grass to a disturbing extent. You could use this to line a child’s Easter basket, but I’m not sure that anyone would want to eat it after it sat out, which in turn defeats the point of using edible Easter grass in the first place.

Wait, I thought green apples went with candy apples to form one of the official flavors of fall! These holiday mashups are too much to bear.
