We have all been there. Waking up on Easter morning and rushing out of bed to find the basket that mysterious bunny left for us. 

I, personally, wasn't a huge fan of the Easter Bunny. How does he get into the house? And how does this giant bunny get this candy? Does he shop at Target? My poor parents had to field some tough questions from me! 

One thing I loved, and still do, is the candy! So, we at Out & About decided to select our Five Fave Easter candies: 


Peeps - These colored marshmallow shaped bunnies define Easter. They are so popular that they have even been made into different colors and shapes for other holidays- (Snowmen for Christmas, ghosts for Halloween and frogs for....hmmm not sure what those frogs are for!) They are oh so cute, but even better to eat. 



Cadbury Creme Eggs

Cadbury Eggs - The contents of these chocolate-covered eggs are sometimes a mystery.The cream and sugar interior is made to look like a real egg's yolk, which does freak some people out. But they also come in caramel and chocolate. These items made our list because they are also an Easter staple, even prompting imitators like Milky Way and Snickers, which have each made similar eggs filled with their contents. 



Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs

Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Eggs - They might be the exact same thing as a traditional Peanut Butter Cup, but I can't resist buying these things whenever I see them around Easter. Maybe it is because they are shaped like eggs, or just my obsession with peanut butter. They are always a favorite. 



Robin's Eggs

Whopper Mini Robin's Eggs - Whoppers covered in colorful pastel colors = malted milk heaven. 







Russell Stover Strawberry Cream Egg

Russell Stover Eggs - Filled with vanilla, marshmallow, maple creme, strawberry or raspberry, these creme eggs are a delight each year. 




Honorable mentions:

Sweetarts Chicks, Ducks and Bunnies

Easter Sweet Tarts -  They are shaped like chicks, ducks and bunnies this time of year. Cute, but not too cute to eat. 




Chocolate bunnies

Chocolate bunny - There are too many brands making these bunnies for us to narrow it down to just one. But getting a chocolate shaped into a bunny is almost expected on Easter. 





Starburst jelly beans

Jelly beans - Starburst, Lifesaver, Nerds – everyone is making a jelly bean now. So pick your favorite and enjoy!
