If you rate major religious holidays by candy (and who doesn’t?) Easter is my hands-down favorite. It’s not overshadowed by presents or sharing with strange kids at your door, and you get to bite the ears off a chocolate rabbit. Good times.
Easter is a holiday for perfectionists and slackers alike. You can dye your organic, free-range eggs in artisanal dyes you found curated on Pinterest, or you can run to the drug store before church on Sunday and pretend the Easter Bunny hid the candy in the CVS just for you.
I am a connoisseur of the finer things in life, and chocolate is at the top of that list. Hershey’s to me evokes so many happy childhood memories, I love getting it for my own kids. Also, I may eat some too. It’s the Mommy Tax!
This year I loved hopping down the Bunny Trail again with Hershey. My kids think I’m the coolest for getting their favorite things in our basket. The one with braces only likes York Peppermint Patties. The one with curly hair loves the Twizzlers.
My husband got the Cadbury chocolate bunny and was nice enough to share before I had to sneak some. My new favorite this year is the mini Reester Bunnies. That’s your standard Reeces’s peanut butter cup molded to look like a tiny bunny character. They hop right into your mouth, but don’t forget to unwrap them first.
This is the last good candy holiday until October, so maybe stock up on the good stuff from Hershey’s to last until then. You will thank me come August when you are cracking into a Cadbury Crème Egg. Same me one of the caramel eggs!
Traditions are what make holidays important. Hershey’s has been a big part of my family’s Easter since I made my oldest son’s first basket of candy when he was too young to eat candy. For more than twenty years, Hershey’s been a special part of our celebrations. We love it so much that we make the pilgrimage to Hershey, PA, once a year!
Hershey sent me an adorable Easter basket of their products. I love Hershey’s so much, that it’s easy to talk about them. All thoughts are, of course, my own.
Happy Easter, y’all! Got a favorite Easter candy? How do feel about sharing?
