Not-so-secret-guilty-pleasure alert: I love mini eggs. The kind of love that requires mini eggs to be hidden if they enter my home, lest they be consumed in one sugar-filled sitting.
During Easters of yore, I would hit up Bulk Barn for all my mini egg needs (need being the operative word, here). But recently I’ve made a more wonderful discovery: Mini eggs are part of the local culinary scene this time of year - at least at coffee shops and bakeries. I’m talking about mini egg hot chocolates, mini egg donuts, and even *gasp* mini egg perogies.
Read on, my dear fellow Okanaganites… And - you’re welcome!
Gluten-free Pronuts from Blooming In Health
Blooming in Health makes gluten-free, stevia-sweetened and high-protein treats (with vegan options), and their “pronut” looks amazing! Visit their site for all their Kelowna area retail locations here.
Mini Egg Cheesecake at Bin 4
Mini Egg Mocha at Kootenay Coffee Company
Mini Egg Donuts at Ratio Coffee
Mini Egg Dessert Perogis from Perogy Mama
Shut the front door - mini egg perogis are a real thing, and all I can think is what a time to be alive. $10 for 12 perogies, but orders close April 10. Bonus: Some of gluten-free options available.
