The Sweet Truth

ChocolateEaster would not be the same if it wasn’t for the bags and bags of candy. Several people are picky about their Easter candy favorites. Each Easter season, Americans spend billions of dollars on Easter candy. Why do Americans seem to go crazy with candy spending?

According to the National Confectioner’s Association, Americans devoured seven billion pounds of candy in 2011. The most popular ones are milk chocolate bunnies, peeps, jellybeans, and reeses eggs. Imagine how many calories that is! Easter candy sales have sky rocketed higher than Halloween candy sales.

Here are some sweet Easter facts you can think about this year while your chomping down on your candy:

  • 76% of Americans bite of the ears of the cholocate bunnies first.
  • 90% of chocolate bunnies are produced around this time of the year.
  • 16 billion jellybeans are produced only for Easter.
  • Americans buy more than 700 million marshmellow peeps each Easter.

There is no doubt, candy is a delicious part of Easter. Enjoy all of the yummy treats but remember to see your dentist afterwards! Happy Easter everyone!
