My Thoughts

Delicious! I probably could've eaten the whole box of Mike and Ike Easter treats. They were super yummy. All flavors were satisfying (grape, pineapple banana, strawberry, lemon-line, cherry). I think the strawberry were my favorite. The Easter Treats were a little firm, so I'd recommend them to older children who are used to chewing tougher foods. They have a chewier inside, but I like that it makes them last a little longer.

I also received a bag of the Mike and Ike jelly beans. These were also yummy and came in the flavors cherry, lemon, lime, strawberry, pineapple, orange, and grape. Out of these, the orange was my favorite. These were very soft, so perfect for all ages.

These candies will make a great Easter addiction to Easter baskets. Mike and Ike makes a great candy that is sweet, but not too sweet. Perfect for any candy lover.
