Weekdays 6:00AM-10:00AM

With Easter coming up next weekend, it’s hard to walk into a supermarket or drug store and not see shelves and shelves of your favorite Easter candy. But not all Easter treats are created equal, and some are certainly way more delicious than others.

  • Well, in case you missed it, CandyStore.com has just come out with the annual results of their survey of the best and worst Easter candy, and we bet it will cause quite a bit of debate.
  • Once again topping the list of the best Easter candy this year is the Cadbury Mini Eggs, with one respondent noting “mini eggs have a certain flavor that is addictive. The FDA might wanna look into this. But I gorge on this stuff.”
  • Coming in at two is a hollow chocolate Easter bunny.
  • Meanwhile, this year there are two new entries into the Top Ten – Mallow Top Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups at four, and Hershey’s Fun-Sized Candy Bars with Easter Wrappers.
