Easter is one of my favorite Holidays, besides Christmas. It is soo much fun to see the kids run around looking for eggs and to see all the spring flowers in bloom. The Winter days are behind us and knowing that Spring has lots in store for us is just my favorite time of the year.
Growing up in Germany we celebrated Easter just the same we celebrate here in the US. My parents would hide eggs and fun Easter baskets on Easter Sunday and us kids would have a blast looking for them all day long.
With my own kids I love to keep the egg hunting tradition alive and we seek eggs all weekend long. Someone will hide them and the kids will spend hours looking for them. We also go to a community Easter egg hunt every year. It is soooo much fun and my princess can’t wait to go this year. She will be one of the older kids. She is super excited.
Another tradition that I have every year is to include lots of our favorite Hershey candy in the kids eggs and basket. I looked around the candy aisle at the stores the other day and found lots of new and fun Hershey candy that I can include in the baskets this year.
Perfect for anyone’s Easter basket, Hershey introduces the new Cadbury® Hollow Milk Chocolate Bunny. Made with smooth and creamy chocolate, it’s a delicious treat for any Easter basket. Also new this year is the Hershey’s® Kisses® Brand Solid Milk Chocolate Bunny, which provides you with everything you need for your Easter basket – a solid milk chocolate bunny and a handful of Hershey’s Kisses Brand Milk Chocolates. Other gift options include:
New Look – Reese’s® Reester Bunny® Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter
Hershey’s Solid Milk Chocolate Snapsy® Bunny
Hershey’s Speedy Bunny® Solid Milk Chocolate
Reese’s Milk Chocolate and Peanut Butter Bunny
Cadbury Hollow Milk Chocolate Bunny
Reese’s Peanut Butter Filled Egg
So much to choose for your Easter basket this year I know you won’t be disappointed. My kids already claimed the Reese’s and the Jelly Beans in case the Easter Bunny will have some leftovers that need to be eaten before they go bad. What candy would your kids like to see in their basket?
And since Easter is right around the corner and for the second year in-a-row, The Hershey Company launched their virtual Hershey’s® Bunny Trail – an online destination featuring family Easter traditions, memories and expert tips from women across the country to help ensure you have the perfect Easter holiday.
