Easter reigns supreme when it comes to candy on holidays. There’s absolutely no other way to put it than that.
Okay, let me rephrase that: Easter reigns supreme in second place when it comes to candy on holidays. Because there’s no overthrowing the ruler of them all. Halloween.
But still, that goes to show that the candy industry booms when it hits spring. From pastel-colored candies to chocolate molds of rabbits, birds, and eggs, Easter knows how to party with chocolate, colored sugary treats, and pretty much all other aspects of thematic candies.
I’m often asked what my favorite candies are even though I don’t munch on candy that much. But when it comes to Easter, I definitely have a few favorites that I have no hesitation in choosing as the best candy. Heck, I’m not even opposed to loading up a few cheap moving boxes full of candy after the holiday is over and having a stash available for the next few months. Check them out!
These are the best, in my opinion. They’re simple, they’re reminiscent of robin eggs (almost to much, to be honest), and they’re festive as all candies can get. It’s probably the design that makes me like this chocolate more than others, but still, the flavor is solid as well.
Whether you like them or not, Peeps are the iconic Easter candy. I myself happen to love them, especially because they’ve recently begun branching out with different flavors and designs. But really, I never get how someone could hate these. They’re marshmallows with sugar on top of them!
Sour candies make the world go round and your mouth go numb. I can’t do too much of these simply because of that last point, but boy oh boy do I enjoy some sour candies here and there. They help to break up the monotony of chocolates while also being colorful and festive. While things like Warheads are a bit too much for my own tongue, I do enjoy the sizzle and burn of some of the tartest and more sour candies out there.
More candy means more eggs. The creaminess of these eggs knows no bounds. Though there’s not much else to these eggs and their insides, they’re well known simply as dang good candy.
Even though these are just pure chocolate molded into a shape, milk chocolate is milk chocolate. And when the bunnies can be pretty huge for “a piece of candy”, they’re even more memorable and fun to bite off of. I like the ones that have colored bowties or colored eyes on them!
