Hop into Easter

unknown-3a967812What’s the nation’s most lucrative holiday for candy sales? Halloween and Valentine’s Day may come to mind, but in fact, Easter takes the cake. If you’ve ever bitten head first into a big-eared chocolate bunny, you know why. But while you may gain a couple pounds this Easter, the good news is that you don’t need to spend upwards of $35,000 on a Faberge egg (or travel to the U.K.) to get your hands on the good stuff. These local chocolatiers and candy shops have all you need for a decadent, and celebratory, holiday ahead.

Oliver Kita

Keep it classic with solid, floppy-eared bunnies, or think outside the rabbit hole with chocolate-covered Peeps, an Alice in Wonderland-inspired shoe, or even two hardcore bunnies on the back of a Harley. Whatever you choose, it’s guaranteed to be organic, fair trade, and most certainly, good.
