What's In The Easter Bunny's Basket For 2011?
The Easter Bunny will soon be making the rounds and many kids (young and
old) will be looking forward to some sugary treats. There are
certainly a lot of classic favorites, but even the bunny knows that sometimes it’s nice to shake
things up a little. Here’s a look at a few of the surprises that may be hiding this year.
Peeps Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Chicks
The perennial favorite is back, but with a twist. For anyone who feels that their bright, sugary indulgence was missing a little something these are for you. Now you can have your two beloved Easter candies in one. This could be some serious sugar overload, but is likely to become a classic too!
While not specifically for Easter, this new offering is sure to put smiles on the faces of all your little egg hunters. Unlike the ever popular M&Ms, these drops have no outer shell but are still supposed to melt only in your mouth – good for the little guys who tend to hold their candy too long. They come in milk chocolate and cookies and cream flavors. These would be great to pop inside those plastic eggs for a small chocolaty surprise.
Lindt Ladybug and Bumblebee
If silky smooth truffles are your thing then these adorable spring boxes filled with lindt chocolates are the way to go. Each treat inside the box has a cute bug wrapper too.
Jelly Belly Peas & Carrots
For the non-chocoholics in the crowd Jelly Belly has this spring mix. Even if your kids regularly shun veggies they surely won’t hide these ones under their plates. The “peas” are green apple flavored and the “baby carrots” taste like orange sherbet.
Wonka Springy Double Yummy Gummies
Also in the purely candy category Wonka has this new offering. These Easter animal gummies are part gummie candy and part marshmallow. They are made with no artificial colors and come individually wrapped. They feature a strawberry rabbit, orange duck and lemon lamb.
