8 Easter Candies You Need to Get in on This Year

What cookies are to Christmas, candy is to Easter – it’s pretty, festive, integral to the holiday celebration and creates a perfect excuse to indulge in sweet-wonderful things you don’t go around eating all year. Even though Easter’s still weeks away, the candy is here NOW. Though I completely recommend getting your favorite everyday treats (M&M’s, Reese’s, etc) while they’re dressed up in pretty Easter colors, there are also some truly seasonal items you can only get right this second. Here’s your guide to the most delicious options:

1.  Target Candy-Covered Pretzels. I discovered these last week, and the bag might already be gone. These are like if you took the round pretzels from pretzel M&Ms and covered them in pastel yogurt type coating. They’re that addicting combination of salty and sweet that few can resist. (Apparently they are so elusive that I can’t even find a picture of them on the internet, and I already ate all of mine, but I promise they’re real and you should look for them.)

2.  Robin’s Eggs. I love Whopper’s usually, so taking what was already a good candy and covering it in a speckled candy shell just makes them that much better.
3.  Cadbury Creme Eggs. Interesting fact: these are way better if you buy them in England, but if you can’t afford the plane ticket or the shipping, they’re still yummy on this side of the pond.
4.  Peeps.  You either love them or you hate them, but you can’t argue that they’re a classic.
5.  Hershey’s Candy Covered Eggs. I know everyone’s about the  and these full of awesome filling, usually , here, here, here, here, here, here, here
