Each year, we count down the days until it’s seasonally (and socially) acceptable to purchase pastel packages of Peeps and Cadbury Crème Eggs by the basket load. Turns out, we’re not the only ones.
A sweet dream for the Easter Bunny and a nightmare for the Tooth Fairy, Americans spent $2.1 billion on Easter candy in 2013. That’s right — billions. And, according to the National Confectioner’s Association, we’re going to stock up on even more chocolate bunnies, jellybeans and marshmallows this year.
In preparation for our upcoming communal sugar coma, we’ve compiled some of our favorite Easter candies and treats. It seemed like a pretty sweet time for some GIFs.
Cadbury White Mini Eggs: Chocolate surrounded by a crunchy candy coating? Don’t mind if we do. New this year, Cadbury made their mini pieces of perfection with white chocolate—and you can only get them at Target.
Peeps Marshmallows: So cute, so delicious. Check out the exclusive Peeps flavors—Vanilla Crème, Orange Crème and Strawberry Crème—at Target this season. Yum!
Classic Chocolate Bunnies: Whether you like yours hollow or solid (65.6 percent of you do), chocolate bunnies are almost too cute to eat. Almost.
Market Pantry Bunny-Shaped Pretzels: Seasonally shaped and perfectly salted, these pretzel bunnies won a coveted spot on this list for adding an unexpected crunch to the Easter basket.
White Chocolate M&Ms: What’s better than M&Ms? White chocolate M&Ms…in bunny ears! The packaging is pastel and perfect for Easter, and you can only pick them up at Target.
Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs: Chocolate and peanut butter wrapped in one egg-shaped package doesn’t really need an explanation.
Starburst Jellybeans: Don’t spill them; just eat them.
Whoppers Robin Eggs: We call them malt ball magic. Try not to eat the entire bag in one sitting.
Cadbury Crème Eggs: An essential addition to any Easter basket, these foil-wrapped wonders are classic.
