Back in the 50's our Easter baskets had the pretty pastel colored marshmallow eggs nestled down in the grass, and usually a chocolate bunny, and some jelly beans. I loved the jelly beans and the bunny, but I was always to disappointed that those pretty pastel eggs were not as good as they looked. I did not like marshmallow.
