The Mandatory Candy For Your Easter Basket This Year

Instagram - Candy Hunting/Candy Warehouse

Easter is the best candy holiday after Halloween, and I won't listen to anyone disagrees with me. Yes, I know it's not about the candy...but it certainly doesn't hurt. We're all used to the classic chocolate eggs and bunnies, but as the years go on, the candy selection just gets better and better. Is it still a lot of chocolate? Yes. But it's so much more than that.

These Easter treats are mandatory for your basket this year.

1. Carrot Cake Rolls

I always forget how much I love carrot cake, but these little treats are here to remind me. To be fair, I would eat these the entire year round, not just on Easter. Although, at least the holiday lets me do it with a little less guilt.

2. White Chocolate Mini Eggs

Mini Eggs are already delicious, but White Chocolate Mini Eggs? Now that's going to be next level delicious. It's a little concerning that they're described as "white candy," but let's be honest...I'll still eat them.

3. Russel Stover Dip-It Rabbit

This is borderline genius. A milk chocolate bunny with a tiny tub of peanut butter to dip it in? Sign me up every day of the week, and twice on Sundays.

4. Dove White Chocolate Carrot Cake

Carrot cake seems to be the theme this year, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that. These tiny white chocolate bites have graham bits in them, and it doesn't get much better than that.

5. Ferrero Rocher Eggs

Ferrero Rocher

These were my mom's favorite candy, and when I absolutely can tell why. I don't love that they're a little smaller than the usual Ferrero Rocher, but I guess that means I'll just have to eat more. Oh well.

6. Sweetarts Bunny Gummies

Target

Moving away from the chocolate a bit, these gummies are a must-have in your Easter basket. Sweetarts are going to turn sour, and you're most likely going to be very happy about it.

7. Spring & Easter Oreos

Oreos are always a great choice. Regardless of the holiday, regardless of the flavor, and regardless of the color. These Spring Oreos with yellow cream and Easter Egg-shaped cookies are bound to make your holiday a little better.

8. Reese's Gold Eggs

Target

Admittedly, these are basically just Reese's cups in the shape of eggs, but there is nothing wrong with that.

9. Junior Mints Eggs

Junior Mints are a movie theater classic, and now they're about to be your favorite Easter classic too. They kind of look a little more like pebbles, but still tasty.

10. Reese's Puffs Bunnies

Candy for breakfast? I'm there. These little bunnies are very festive and are a perfect Easter treat.

11. Sweetos & Cheetos

These ones I'm on the fence about, but I'm down for trying anything. I think I would prefer the cheese ones and not the caramel ones, though.

12. Blueberries & Cream Lindor Chocolates

I love a good Lindor chocolate, and these sound extremely intriguing. There's the potential that they'll end up being too sweet with the fruit and white chocolate, but it'll be a decadent little bite.

13. Sour Patch Kids Marshmallows

My best friend loves any and all things sour, so these are on the list for her. Personally, I'll be skipping over them.

14. Shimmer Mini Eggs

Yes. More Mini Eggs. Always. These ones are shiny, and that's really the only thing that makes them special. But you're a fool if you don't think I'm eating them anyway.

15. Neapolitan M&M's

Amazon

These may not be Easter specific, but a little fruitiness goes a long way!

16. Reese's Pieces Eggs

Target

We already had Reese's eggs, but these ones are even better. How, you ask? Because they have Reese's Pieces inside them. It's a tiny little miracle.

17. Celebrations Egg

Alright, so these candies aren't necessarily Easter-centric, but the variety that comes in this egg is like a mini Halloween. It's perfect.

18. Oreo Eggs

These aren't new, but they are absolutely delicious. A chocolate egg stuffed with cookies 'n' creme filling is what I call bliss.

19. Dove Milk Chocolate Peanut Butter Chocolates

If you thought Reese's had a monopoly on chocolate and peanut butter, you were wrong. Dove has these little eggs, and they're giving Reese's a run for their money.

20. Reese's Creme Eggs

Of course, Dove isn't totally taking over. Reese's is still the king when it comes to peanut butter candy. These creme eggs even come in an egg carton, so you can pretend they're healthy!

21. Russell Stover Eggs

Russell Stover rarely disappoints, and with these new marshmallow eggs, they've once again hit a home run!

22. Reese's 1lb Bunny

A 1lb Reese's peanut butter bunny. Need I say more?

Which one do you want the most?
