Easter Fun!

Happy Holiday!  I just wanted to pass along some interesting fun facts for the Easter Holiday! Enjoy!

Candy
 

Each Easter season, Americans buy more than 700 million Marshmallow Peeps, shaped like chicks, as well as Marshmallow Bunnies and Marshmallow Eggs, making them the most popular non-chocolate Easter candy.

 

   

Americans consume 16 billion jellybeans at Easter, many of them hidden in baskets. If all the Easter jellybeans were lined end to end, they would circle the globe nearly three times.

 

   

Candy makers are offering more and more Easter products. In the early 1980s, M&M's became available in pastel spring colors. Reese's makes peanut butter eggs, and Smucker's produces jellybeans.

 

   

Chocolate bunnies should be eaten ears first, according to 89% of Americans. Six percent said bunnies should be eaten feet first, while 5% favored eating the tail first.

 

 

 

Easter is the second most important candy-eating occasion of the year for Americans, who consumed $2.26 billion worth of candy in 2014, according to the National Confectioner's Association.
