Do they still make those large chocolate Easter eggs?

They were about a pound and filled with either coconut creme or fruit & nut or peanut butter. You would slice pieces off to eat them.I looked everywhere to get one to take to our hostess for dinner today and the lady at the grocery store said they don't make them anymore.

yes......mary sue easter eggs......a great baltimore tradition. i also love their pecan nut and nougat logs. rhebs, another great baltimore company also had large filled easter eggs. wockenfuss and glaubers also had them.

 

sees candies also makes chocolate eggs, but i think their biggest is just slightly over half a pound.

If you have a See's candy around you they make large decorated Easter Eggs.  My children's favorite was always the chocolate butter but I know there were several choices.

I remember the fruit and nut ones.  I must havs been small because I had to ask someone to slice mine for me.

 

I kinda remember the kitchen with the metal table top.  We mixed our Oleo there also. In case you dont remember, it was lard that you mixed by hand with a yellow coloring to make it look like butter. There was no such thing as margarine in those days. I loved mixing that awful stuff up!

 

Wish I could have one of those big fruit and nut eggs right now.

Mother used to buy my sister and me one of those eggs every Easter.  We liked the fruit and nut flavor,  and the outside would be exquisitely decorated with candy pastel flowers.  I haven't seen those for years. 

 

Now they have those Cadbury Eggs which make me gag at the though of eating what appears to be a raw egg.

@Perkup  You and I go back way too far.  I remember that margarine coming in a firm plastic bag with a dot of dye in it.  It was my job to work the stuff until the dye was evenly distributed.  It was during the war.  I always wondered why they couldn't mix that dye in at the factory where they made the stuff.

@Kachina624    Squeezing the marg bag was "my job" too.    The dairy farmers lobbied for legislation that prevented imitation butter products being sold in the yellow color.   Marg was against the law altogether in Wisconsin when I was a kid.  di

I would love one of those fruit and nut eggs again, that had the crunchy colorful flowers and leaves decorating the outside. 😋
