Sweet, almost too sweet, cruncharific, colorful, malty, chocolatey, candy covered, (but mostly malty); these Brach’s Pastel Fiesta Malted Milk Eggs are perfect for the Easter Fiesta.

These eggs are a malted mouthful and they are made with “Real Milk Chocolate.” (I sure hope it’s real! I didn’t realize candy companies had to inform the consumer that we were purchasing real chocolate; I would only assume that a chocolate candy being made from real chocolate be an implicit rule).

Though a few at a time make this candy seem utterly delectable, after you pass the threshold of the Pastel Fiesta Malted Milk Eggs it’s time to pass the bag on and come back later. Make sure to mix these pastel speckled eggs into the Easter basket this March to spice up the holiday with a little variety and lot of color.

Why has the taste of Brach’s Malts changed?

Brach’s Malted Milk Balls aka Brach’s Malts have been a favorite of candy lovers for many years. The candy was made with delicious rich milk chocolate and had a crunchy malt center.

In recent months, the taste has changed and many think that it has not been for the better.

We contacted Customer Service at Brach’s Candy (a subsidiary of Farley’s & Sathers) and they graciously replied as follows:

“Farley’s & Sathers made an adjustment to this product formula. We will be evaluating consumer reactions and responses to the changes in this product on a weekly basis in an effort to determine consumer impact. Your feedback is important to us, and the information you provided will be considered as we review and evaluate the changes to this item…”

If sales are an indication, consumers do not like the new formula…

As the old saying goes, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it…”
