Easter Candy, Chocolates and Easter Candy Baskets
Candy is a relatively recent Easter tradition. Celebrate the holiday's origin with some of our Easter Candy Gifts, and scarf down Chocolate Bunnies and Marshmallow Peeps this Easter Sunday! Chocolate eggs were first made in Europe in the early 1800s and are one of the more popular Easter Candy items. Easter is the second most candy-eating occasion of the year for Americans. Jelly Beans did not become an Easter tradition until the 1930s and since then, Jelly Bean eating has soared and an estimated 16 billion Jellybeans are consumed at Easter, many of them hidden in Easter Candy Baskets. Marshmallow Chick Peeps, as well as Marshmallow Bunnies and Marshmallow Eggs are the most popular non-chocolate Easter Candy.
