When you think of Easter candy, a few key items probably pop to mind: chocolate bunnies, marshmallow Peeps, and malted milk balls. And when you think of malted milk balls, you probably think of Whoppers.
'whoppers' on Serious Eats
I grew up in a heavily sugar-regimented household, where candy was only allowed at special occasions, movie outings, and every kid's favorite holiday, Halloween. Thus, the fleeting sugar highs of my childhood were major occasions, and I still remember the first time I had Whoppers. On a whim, I decided at the movie theater concession stand to cheat on my tried and true favorite, Sour Patch Kids, in favor of the malty miracles that are Whoppers.
