Easter-egg hunts are all fine and good: there's the thrill of the chase, surreptitiously throwing elbows to be the first one to grab the brightly colored plastic ovum, the victorious score, and finally, the sweet second of anticipation before breaking open the loot to find...stupid jelly beans.
Now, we're not one to look a gift bunny in the mouth (those front teeth are scaaaary!), but we are one to offer suggestions. So here's what else can fit into a closed, regulation-size, three-inch plastic egg, should the Easter Bunny want to try something new this year and cram 'em full of St. Louis' best loved edible goodies. (For the record, those same eggs hold 77 jelly beans a piece, according to our highly scientific count.)
32 Imo's Provel ropes
1 large side of au jus from Lion's Choice
1 White Castle cheeseburger, 6 bitten-in-half French fries
1/6th of a pound of mostaccioli from Schnucks
2.5 Buffalo chicken rings, also from White Castle
2 toasted ravioli (1 bitten in half)
One-third of a small "Cardinal Sin" concrete from Ted Drewes (approximate)
