With all the December celebrations and Valentine’s Day out of the way, holiday lovers now have Easter to look forward to. And while the holiday is still a ways away, Cadbury’s new Easter candy might help you get into the spirit of things a little bit early.

The candy brand has some new tricks up its sleeve for 2019 — and you’re going to love what it’s rolling out. You can now shop a new and improved version of Cadbury’s Mini Eggs called Cadbury Shimmer Mini Eggs. And yes, just as the name suggests, these new versions of the eggs actually shimmer and shine.

They seem to consist of the same coated milk chocolate candy as usual. But instead of having a pastel outer layer, there’s a shimmering effect coating the festive candy shell.

You can already find these candies available for purchase online in 9-ounce bags via Candy Warehouse. On the site, a bag of the new mini eggs goes for $6.90. Each bag includes about 70 pieces.

The shimmer candies were also once available on Amazon, but appear to be currently sold out, unless you’d like to purchase them from a third-party seller. It may just be worth it to do so for sparkle like this:


Of course, keep your eyes peeled when grocery shopping, too. You never know when you might stumble upon them!

The @CandyHunting Twitter account has already spotted these on Target shelves, as announced in the January post below.

Not only will these candies fit perfectly inside plastic eggs for Easter egg hunts, but they’ll also look great in candy dishes. They’ll even make a fun topping for any candy-filled Easter desserts you might be making.

When it comes to Easter candy, Cadbury really knows what they’re doing!
