    LOL! I actually made the headlines SMALLER than they way the press release had it, which was HUGE! But yes, when Cadbury eggs are no longer safe, the terrorists have won. (Well, they weren't behind this, but they are probably happy about it! hmph!)

    And here I thought they had been recalled because someone found all sorts of gooey, sticky, mucous-y nastiness in them.

    Uck - not my favorite candy, and that's saying something! LOL
