Favorite Easter Candy

Updated on March 13, 2011

There are many different delicious Easter candy treats, some of which are only available during the spring season. With so many different Easter candies to choose from, it's difficult – if not impossible – to settle on a single favorite Easter candy.

Fortunately, there's no reason to limit your selection to just one, or even a few, favorite choices. You can enjoy as many varieties of Easter candy as you want!

7 Favorite Easter Candy Options

Some of the most popular types of Easter candy include:

1. Chocolate Easter Bunny Candy

The most widely recognized Easter candy is probably the chocolate bunny. Seasonal bunny candies are available in all sizes, ranging from single serving sizes to giant chocolate critters sanding several feet high. Some are hollow and others are solid. They're also available in several chocolate varieties, including milk chocolate, dark chocolate, and even white chocolate.

2. Cadbury's Crème Eggs

These particularly decadent Easter treats are an all-time favorite. They are foil wrapped milk chocolate eggs filled with a sweet, creamy concoction of yellow and white crème filling. The treats are designed to resemble eggs, but their flavor is sheer chocolate and sugar heaven.

3. Peeps

The Easter season is the peak popularity season for Peeps, the adorable marshmallow chicks coated in yellow, pink or purple sugar. The company also makes sugar coated marshmallow bunnies and eggs in a variety of seasonal colors. They're cute and tasty, and sure to be a hit with anyone who enjoys the flavor of marshmallows as a special treat.

4. Peanut Butter Eggs

If you enjoy Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, you're sure to love the company's Peanut Butter Eggs, marketed each year during the Easter season. They are individually wrapped in single serving sizes, and can be purchased in single units or in multipacks.

5. Jelly Belly Jelly Beans

Available year round, Jelly Belly candies are a terrific Easter treat. These gourmet jelly beans com in all types of flavors ranging from traditional fruity varieties to truly unique flavors like buttered popcorn. They're available in bulk or in small packages perfect for gift giving or snacking.

6. Easter M & M's

M & M's are available in special colors for many holiday occasions, including Easter. During the Easter season, you can get pastel colored M & M candies adorned with bunnies and other holiday specific characters.

7. Sugar Eggs

The Easter season is the first time to enjoy a Sugar Easter Egg, or give one as a gift. This unique treat is exactly what the name describes – it's an egg crafted from sugar. Sugar eggs are hollow, and typically have decorative elements, also made from candy, inside the hollow portion.
