As Easter Sunday creeps closer, Gut Check dreams of baskets piled high with pastel-colored candies, chocolate shaped like baby animals and, oh sweet Jesus, Cadbury eggs. We remember well the ritual of sorting the bounty bestowed by the big, weird Easter Bunny: Would it be good stuff...or crap?

Want to avoid the inevitable disappointment of unsatisfying, subpar Easter candy? Check out our take on the 5 Best and Worst Easter Treats, which we'll trot out each day as the holiday approaches... Best Easter Candy Countdown, No. 3: Hershey's Solid Milk Chocolate Eggs Many of the Easter candies currently dotting the shelves at stores are only popular because of their gimmicky names or flavors. The simplicity of milk chocolate done right is often lost in a sea of giant, rock-hard bunnies and inedible sugar bombs shaped like chicks.

For those who would like to enjoy seasonal candy without the gimmick, look no further than Hershey's solid milk chocolate eggs. These little eggs will satisfy your sweet tooth without rotting your teeth. They're made of the same chocolatey goodness we expect from Hershey's, molded into dense, rich, bite-sized eggs.

These eggs are simple and uncomplicated. Thanks to other trusted Hershey's offerings, including kisses and mini chocolate bars, we know Hershey's won't bullshit us with low-quality, chalky-tasting chocolate.

Hershey's understands that what we want most from our Easter candy is creamy milk chocolate in a holiday shape that won't break our teeth, make us sick to our stomachs or ruin Easter with gross-out novelty. We feel festive while eating Hershey's eggs, and thanks to their pastel wrappers, we can carry some (or a whole bag) around with us without fear of them melting in our pockets and ruining perfectly nice Easter pajamas dress clothes.
