A variety of Easter baskets are available at The Happy Chocolatier

As we finalize our preparations for Easter at The Happy Chocolatier – creating many different types of Easter baskets, dipping chocolate Easter treats, bagging jelly beans and stocking the shelves with a variety of chocolate bunnies – I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite Easter candy factoids:

– About 90 million chocolate Easter bunnies are produced every year
– Milk chocolate Easter bunnies are clearly the preference over dark…65% and 27%, respectively
– Americans consume about 16 million jelly beans at Easter
– Jelly beans were first made here in Boston by William Schrafft
– 70% of kids prefer to eat jelly beans one at a time
– Kids prefer cherry, strawberry and grape fruit flavors of jelly beans
