I loved this post full of statistics about Easter chocolate and sweets from Creative Youth Ideas:
  • 90 million chocolate Easter bunnies are made for Easter each year.
  • Each day, five million marshmallow chicks and bunnies are produced in preparation for Easter.
  • 16 billion jelly beans are made for Easter
  • 63 percent of Americans would most like to receive a chocolate bunny on Easter morning, followed by marshmallow bunnies (10 percent).
  • The world’s largest jar of jelly beans weighed 6,050 pounds.
  • 75 percent of kids are willing to do extra chores for extra Easter candy
  • According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest Easter egg ever made was just over 25-ft high and made of chocolate and marshmallow. The egg weighed 8,968 lbs. and was supported by an internal steel frame.
  • 88 percent of adults carry on the Easter tradition of creating Easter baskets for their kids & 90 percent of adults hope for their own treat from the Easter Bunny. Who wouldn’t want chocolate?!
  • The first chocolate eggs were made in Europe in the early 19th century and remain among the most popular treats associated with Easter.
  • Kids first grab for chocolate bunnies (76 percent) when checking out their Easter baskets, followed by marshmallow treats (18 percent), malted milk balls/eggs (17 percent) and jelly beans (16 percent).
  • When it comes to knowing which types of bunnies please the palate, the majority of Americans say a solid chocolate bunny (42 percent) first and foremost, followed by a hollow chocolate bunny (21 percent), marshmallow bunny (10 percent) and other types of Easter bunny candy (9 percent).
  • Red jelly beans are kids’ favorite.
