What Is Favorite Easter Candy?

easter pollAs winter slowly falls behind us, we bid farewell to many of the wholesome holidays that focus on candy and other sweet foods. Though Halloween, Christmas, and Thanksgiving are behind us, many wait eagerly for the arrival of Easter amidst spring time’s warmer weather. When we think of Easter candy, there are a few things that come to mind immediately. These include jelly beans, marshmallow Peeps, and of course, chocolate Easter eggs. While jelly beans were once available in just two varieties – spice and fruit – today we can find jelly beans from many of our favorite candy brands, including Jolly Rancher and Starburst jelly beans. Marshmallow Peeps have expanded as well. And not just the way they expand if you microwave them! But the truly indulgent side of Easter candy belongs to chocolate bunnies and eggs. Do we eat too much Easter candy? Sure, many of us nosh on our fair share of scrumptious candy on Easter morning…and Easter afternoon…and Easter night. Americans buy over 120 million pounds of Easter candy. That’s enough to max out over 4,615 dump trucks. Please answer the poll below so we can see where we all stand. I would love to see the results.
