The Easter season is in full swing. For those of you reading this in the Midwest, the flowers are starting to bloom and the temperature is more often 50 degrees than 20 degrees. What's great about spring is that the sidewalks are full of families, runners, and walkers, all taking time to enjoy the new season. With spring coming back it also beckons a new season of food!
It seems that holiday's here in America consistently have food at the center of them. Maybe you enjoy a traditional turkey for Thanksgiving or a Christmas Ham on Christmas Eve. Easter also involves food and has a special bunny that brings eggs full of some pretty great goodies!
Easter baskets full of treats were always a family tradition for me growing up. We also had our annual family Easter egg hunt and afterwards, we had the chance to dive into our Easter baskets. In general, I am a huge fan of candy and for Easter I have my favorites.
First off, when I am hoping to go more traditional, I love Peeps. Peeps are such a unique marshmallow candy and they are the true definition of Easter candy to me. My rule is: if you are going to enjoy Peeps, they must be the chicken shape (not the bunnies or any other variations).
My other Easter candy preferences are Cadberry Eggs. These are a solid choice if you are seeking out some chocolate during this season! My next choice is the Starburst Jelly Beans.These are a more recent release with that great Starburst flavor packed into small jelly beans! These are a tasty take on the traditional jelly bean.
I hope you've enjoyed some of my favorite Easter candy! Let us know what your favorite tradition is when it comes to your candy of choice. What do you enjoy stuffing in your Easter eggs?
