EGGS-ACT­ING TASTE TEST

Panel passes judg­ment on Easter treats

Regina Leader-Post - - FRONT PAGE -

A tell­tale sign of spring — along with sugar shacks, taxes and gap­ing pot­holes — is the pres­ence of choco­late eggs and bun­nies at your lo­cal drug­store or su­per­mar­ket.

While some Easter treats, like Mini Eggs, have started pop­ping up year-round, most of the cheap finds re­main strictly sea­sonal. So, this be­ing Easter week­end, which ones de­serve your cash and taste buds?

A team of cho­cophiles as­sem­bled to judge five Easter egg treats. On the panel: co­me­dian (and new dad) Mike Pater­son; Cé­line Car­bon­neau, pas­try chef and owner of Mon­treal bak­ery; Aphrodite Salas, the res­i­dent foodie at CTV Mon­treal who hosts and pro­duces the Week­end Bite seg­ment; Clara Riga, a stu­dent and our ap­pointed “voice of the youth.”

And there’s me, a morn­ing ra­dio pro­ducer who grew up in a bi­cul­tural house­hold, nosh­ing on Easter bun­nies and choco­late matzo.

Let’s un­wrap the foil and be­gin!

The pan­el­lists hard at work and high on sugar in­clude: ra­dio pro­ducer Sarah De­shaies, from left, co­me­dian Mike Pater­son, pas­try chef Cé­line Car­bon­neau, Aphrodite Salas, TV host, and ap­pointed “voice of the youth” Clara Riga.

The Easter haul used for the test in­cluded su­gary child­hood favourites, more gourmet of­fer­ings and “a rec­tan­gle with an egg stick­ing out of it.”
