If Spring truly has a holiday, Easter certainly qualifies. The images of bright sunshine, the leafing of trees, the blooming flowers, all of it. You can just smell the Easter lilies in church, celebration lunches and dinners, and from a youthful viewpoint, the candy. The folks behind the Kibbe and Friends show fully understand the meaning of Easter, as do we, but as a kid we grew up with Easter baskets filled to the brim with enough junk food and sugar-based items that would leave the young and unsupervised seeing plenty of springtime colors. Chocolate bunnies, colored eggs, jellybeans, and more were waiting in a colorful wicker basket. What was your favorite Easter candy growing up? Those "robin's eggs" malted milk balls? Peanut butter bunnies? The guys break down popular Easter candies, from hollow chocolate rabbits that you can break in half to fill with ice cream (that's actually a genius idea!) to their almost universal derision of the Cadbury egg.
What? How can you hate Cadbury eggs?!?!
They also discuss Cleetus McFarland's showstopping first race in the Super Stadium Truck racing series at Long Beach, where he very nearly won the event racing against the likes of Robby Gordon. Yes, he crashed out with maybe a 50-yard dash to go, but he was leading for quite a bit and was in the fight the whole time up until the last jump went bad. It's easy to poke fun at the Giraffe, but truth be told, his performance was stunning and we hope to see Cleet hop back in the truck for another round. There's other subjects they touch on, like hats, vehicle transporting, and new car prices, and of course there is a Dukes of Hazzard review ("Cool Hands, Luke and Bo" from Season 7). But after a listen, you just might have to go find something made of chocolate to snack on. Might we suggest a Cadbury egg?
