As if. I took these photos two weeks ago when it was still February. I guess you can never be prepared enough for the resurrection of Christ. I admit, I bought some dye and plastic eggs that look like baseballs (Easter and sports can mix). My kid really loves coloring eggs and plotting egg hunts around the CWW grounds. It doesn't have to be religious, OK? Sometimes a purple egg is simply a purple egg. And I do appreciate a good jelly bean.
What can you get for your dollar at Dollar Tree? Let's check in, shall we? In the order of most spiritual, to least.
Nothing says "religious fervor" like "Hear My Prayer" chocolate praying hands. Will you bite off the wrist or the fingers first? Will you feel like a cannibal with a sweet-tooth? Lord knows...
Hey, Christ is arisen! Here's a chocolate cross to celebrate. Comes in white chocolate too. White chocolate is not chocolate by a long shot. It should be called something entirely new, like "hardened vanillan." A hardened vanillan crucifix! Why...thank you.
He is risen! It says so, right on this egg. Fill with your favorite jelly bean-flavors and ponder the gift of eternal life as represented by South-Park Jesus here.
Let's check out the entire display of Inspiration Eggs. This would make a great door-prize at your next gathering, provided your guests were either very Christian, or ironically not very Christian at all. Either way, greatness for one dollar.
What have we here? Sweet Quenchers Powder Candy, in carrot form. My brain's going in all different directions with this one. Is it a quencher, a candy, a powder, a vegetable, a container, or all five at once? Ka-boom! (my thought processes just blew.)
QUAX, the yummy ducky. Say it ten times, fast. Isn't that fun? Hollow milk flavored. Dollar Tree is so completely on acid this month.
You can never have enough Marshmallow Peeps®. According to the Peeps Web site, there's now new chocolate-mousse flavored marshmallow bunnies. Ka-BOOM! (There goes my brain again.)
Dollar Tree is the official store of recession busters everywhere.
