Super Mario Candy Easter Egg

By: on February 25, 2016

It may not be a block, but crack your head against this yellow question mark and you'll still enjoy the spoils of gold coins and a mushroom o' added life. Or at least a temporary increase in energy from its 58 or so grams of sugar.

Peter Cottontail is starting to load up his baskets for Easter, and when he goes hoppin' down the Bunny Trail this year, I sure hope he has a Super Mario candy egg from The Truffle Cottage in mine. The online candy company is a Willy Wonka Chocolate Factory for geeks, with entire lines of treats for fans of everything from Star Wars and Harry Potter to superheroes, The Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones.

The white chocolate Super Mario egg contains white chocolate crispy balls nestling a handful of chocolate gold coins. You'll also get a red Super Mushroom or a green 1-up Mushroom in The Truffle Cottage's Raspberry Cheesecake flavor.
