Lenten Reflections - Or, Why Do We Eat So Much Candy at Easter?

Did you ever wonder how Easter gained the status of second biggest candy holiday? I always suspected it had something to do with giving up sugar or chocolate for lent -- at the end of your candy "fast" you hit the payload... Well, that's just my theory.

As we're compiling the various and sundry treats for our Easter gift guide, I thought I'd share some Easter candy trivia. You can find the full article at Infoplease:

dark bunny_.jpgSweet Easter Facts by David Johnson


  • Ninety million chocolate Easter bunnies are produced each year.

  • Chocolate Bunnies
    should be eaten ears first, according to 76% of Americans. Five percent said bunnies should be eaten feet first, while 4% favored eating the tail first.

peeps_.jpgMillions of Peeps


  • Each Easter season, Americans buy more than 700 million Marshmallow Peeps
    , shaped like chicks, as well as Marshmallow Bunnies
    and Marshmallow Eggs, making them the most popular non-chocolate Easter candy.

  • As many as 4.2 million Marshmallow Peeps, bunnies, and other shapes can be made each day.

  • In 1953, it took 27 hours to create a Marshmallow Peep. Today it takes six minutes.

jelly beans_.jpgJellybeans Could Circle the Globe


  • Americans consume 16 billion jelly beans
    at Easter, many of them hidden in baskets. If all the Easter jellybeans were lined end to end, they would circle the globe nearly three times.

  • Jellybeans were probably first made in America by Boston candy maker William Schrafft, who ran advertisements urging people to send jellybeans to soldiers fighting in the Civil War. They did not become an Easter tradition until the 1930s.

  • 70% of kids aged 6-11 say they prefer to eat Easter jellybeans one at a time, while 23% report eating several at once. Boys (29%) were more apt to eat a handful than girls (18%).

hotxbuns.jpgOlder Traditions


  • Hot cross buns were among the earliest Easter treats, made by European monks and given to the poor during Lent.

  • Pretzels were originally associated with Easter. The twists of a pretzel were thought to resemble arms crossed in prayer.

What we do know is that its milk chocolate and its made by Perugina, which is a great Italian chocolate maker. So whatever the "surprise" is, we're sure its worth the curiousity!

A Unique Chocolate Easter Bunny With Floppy Ears

31TOafdWozL._SL500_AA280_.jpg
To us, a vast majority of chocolate Easter bunnies look the same. They're generally made out of just a handful of molds, they're usually a profile of the bunny, blah, blah, blah.

Which is why we really like this Flop Eared Bunny.

First, we like that it has more dimension - its facing forward and shows the whole body. Second, we love that he has a floppy ear. So this bad bunny is both delicious but also unique and fun.

Check out the Flop Eared Bunny in Milk Chocolate.
