Easter snacks 2014

After last year's Easter snacks post, I decided to write another one for this year. I really like to indulge in delicious food that are only available during special occasions and festivities (Don't even get me started on Christmas. ^_^).

While I only showed you two kinds of snacks last year, there is a lot more this time.


I first started my day with whole wheat bread with thinly sliced chicken and sandwich spread.

Albert Heijn Feeststol

I also got this "paasstol" from the Albert Heijn (local supermarket), which is a traditional Dutch dish. It is a raisin bread loaf filled with almond paste and we serve it with some icing sugar on top. We also eat this during Christmas. I really love the almond paste that is in there, which is also used in many treats during Sinterklaas (celebrated in the Netherlands on 5 December each year).

A piece of advice: It is better to sprinkle the icing sugar on the slice of raisin bread loaf only, if you are not planning to eat the whole thing. Before, I sprinkled the icing sugar all over the raisin bread loaf and after putting it back into the plastic wrapper, the icing sugar turned into a sticky, sugary mess.

There is another thing, I bought from the Albert Heijn. It almost seems like I am advertising for them, but there are two Albert Heijn supermarkets in close vicinity of where I live, so I just go there for my groceries very often. I bough this box of cream puffs covered with yellow colored chocolate and with decorations made of marzipan.

 Chocolate Easter Eggs

 Of course, I also ate many chocolate Easter eggs. The first ones with the colorful Easter prints had different fillings and rice crispies in them.

From these chocolate Easter eggs underneath, I like the larger one with gold wrapping the most. It is a white chocolate one, which was very creamy and delicious. The ones with lime green, red, and purple wrappers have the traditional flavors (milk, dark, and white chocolate) and a few rice crispies in them as well.
