Happy Easter! While most people are busy planning their dinner menus and getting ready for Easter egg hunts, the one thing on my mind is eating some delicious Easter candies! Easter actually takes second place behind Halloween in terms of candy sales volume. But have you ever wondered where all the classic Easter treats originally came from?

From Cadbury Creme Eggs to chocolate bunnies, there’s a fascinating story behind most of the popular Easter candies that appear on supermarket shelves every year. Saveur magazine recently released an article chronicling the history of some of these most popular candies. Let’s take a look:

These popular creme-filled Easter treats with a sweet fondant center first appeared in 1875. This particular candy is one that everyone seems to either love or hate, but they are still reminiscent of the chocolate creams that were around centuries ago.

  1. When I think of Easter candy I always go back to a delight that my father would buy for each of us kids.They were slightly expensive but OH SO GOOD.It was a half pound chocolate egg with a rich buttercream filling and in the very center was a yellow color like the yoke of a real egg.
    It wasd made by a company just recently nput out to pasture by the name of Fanny Farmer.I’ve tried Cadbury, but please not even in the same league.Not even close.
    I used to buy these eggs for my own kids and around Easter time the line went from inside the sore to outside the store evcery year.The people that own that recipe obviously are not in the candy business to make money because they don’t offer these eggs in their line up.
