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.

    Have you noticed that something bad has happened to Brach’s chocolate candy in the last year? I think the company must have been sold or something. The quality of their chocolate has deteriorated. My sister first noted it in malted milk balls last summer and then I noticed it in the chocolate covered raisins in the fall. I held my breath to see if my beloved fiesta eggs would also be adversely affected – AND THEY ARE! This was my all time favorite candy my whole life. I would hunt down every last store that sold them each year. Now I am heartbroken that they are not the same quality – the taste is awful – the chocolate is crummy. I am so sad. The end of happiness in the world.

    So dissapointed this year. Cannot even find a bag of these Fiesta eggs anywhere to see for myself if they are still good. They have been my favorite since I was a child also. Last year only Walmart and HyVee had limited amount and ran out early. What’s the deal! Bought 2 bags of what I thought were these only to get home and find out they were pure chocolate. Do not want to order Easter Candy through the mail. Would like to pick it up in the store with all my other Easter purchases. What happened?

    I am very disappointed. I couldn’t find any Fiesta eggs at all. This was my favorite candy. I’ve waited all year and nothing!!

    Can’t believe it either. I have searched every year for these childhood favorites and have found them each year except this year. I can’t believe I will have an easter season without them. Why are they so hard to find. Used to be at Walmart, and then Target , and then nowhere. Boohoo !!!

    Brachs Fiesta eggs are the family favorite and we too are disappointed not to be able to get them. Walmart didn’t carry them or the local grocery stores.

    Boo hoo is right! Farley & Sathers bought Brach’s in 2007 and MUST have changed the recipe! My sister and I (longtime obsessed fanatics of Brach’s Fiesta malted milk eggs) are devastated to find they have messed with perfection. We fought over, hid and stole these eggs from our brothers Easter baskets. Little did they know.
    We look forward to them with such love and affection that my sister in law in the Midwest has to mail them to us on the East coast. They are impossible to find here! If these eggs have such a cult following bring back the BRACH’S Malt Milk Easter eggs!

    Fiesta malted milk ball eggs are my favorite candy. I always look forward to Easter just so I can get them. After reading the other comments,I feel lucky. I have been able to find them every year in my local store. I usually buy 6 bags, because my husband enjoys them as much as I do. Also, being a cross country trucker has its advantages. We can check all over the USA for these gems. PLEASE don’t ever stop making these, I love ’em…….

    We usually buy 20 bags around Easter and eat 3 or 4 before Easter. My wife hides whatever isn’t eaten at Easter. Pulled a bag out in mid-february and it lasted about 5 minutes.

    Everyone of our 6 children noticed they weren’t the same this year. We bought 6 bags and still have 3 left. Very disappointing. Has been a family favorite for over 40 years when we bought them in bulk at the local dime store. Go back to the old recipe please.

    I noticed the last time I bought them that they were different from the original version. I still think they are better than any of the competition, but they are not the fiesta eggs I grew up loving.

    What were the new owners thinking? Saving money? How can that be with the price they charge now. Why mess with a recipe that had such a loyal following?

    Very disappointed with the change. Bring back the old recipe!
