It's not a holiday in America if there's no candy involved.  And I don't think I just made that up. This holiday we put the candy into a basket, instead of a stocking or a pumpkin.

Let's review the most popular choices for favorites.

Of course this time of year they aren't cups, they're egg shaped. But a Reese's is a Reese's no matter the shape.  And the combination or Chocolate and Peanut Butter is a winner, winner, winner.

Gotta love jelly beans.  Nothing but sugar and a bunch of chemicals and dye.  What's not to love. They are probably most popular at Easter and they have to be on the list.

How about Eggs.  Whether hard boiled and painted, or packaged and covered in chocolate. Cadbury Eggs for example probably has their biggest sales of the year at Easter time.

Chocolate bunnies.  Hollow or Solid.  Good chocolate or run of the mill chocolate.  Hard to resist.  There are even college courses on how to best eat a chocolate bunny. Or there should be. But who among us doesn't eat the ears first. And no it wasn't me in the photo above.

Peeps is on the list of favorite candy for Easter. Not my favorite, so I shouldn't be the one to write the review.

Just a reminder, in case you want to go back and vote again, any form of peanut butter cups should be reason to celebrate anything.  FYI, the above choices as listed in a national survey  No offense if your favorite was omitted.
