Easter is two weeks away. Aside from its religious significance, it’s also a pretty significant food holiday. Easter brunch, new Peeps flavors, and the wide variety of beautiful, braided breads from around the world are all reasons to celebrate. But there’s another connection to Easter and food we should talk about: It’s our last dedicated candy holiday until next Halloween.
Just think about it: From pre-Halloween until Easter, there are thematically shaped candies constantly in stores. After the last of the Easter candy is bought on final final sale, we face a summer of regularly shaped chocolates and sweets. No pumpkins, Christmas trees, or bunnies to speak of.
With that in mind, today’s Amazon sale on Easter candy can be seen as a way to stock up for Easter baskets — or for the drought of bunnies and jelly beans that lies ahead. In addition to rabbits and egg-shaped treats, there are also bulk options on candy and chocolate bars in both fun- and full-sized portions. There are also some slightly more adult (but still fun) options, like gift baskets and flowers.
Discounts range from 20 to 50% off, and the best discounts are on an egg hunt-friendly bag of mini M&M Mars candies and a 3-pack of giftable M&M Easter candies that make great hostess gifts, egg hunt prizes, or centerpieces. For the truly hardcore, there’s also a 4-pound bag of Hershey’s kisses.
In addition to candy, Amazon is also running a one-day sale on non-edible basket fillers from Crayola. Parents or caregivers can find lots of fun, creative things for kids of all ages, and most are not Easter-themed, with the exception of these egg crayons designed for toddler grips.
