Easter egg chocolates are a popular springtime treat.

It’s almost spring, the most eggs-ellent time of the year! Whether you are looking for the golden egg on an easter egg hunt, watching flowers as they begin to bloom, or impatiently waiting for groundhog Punxsutawney Phil to appear, spring is a time of new beginnings and joy. One of the best things about the spring season is the food, especially candy. There are Peeps, chocolate bunnies, and endless aisles filled with delicious sweets. Below are some favorite spring treats to start your season off with something sweet.

You cannot go wrong with a classic chocolate bunny. They taste amazing, and besides, who doesn’t like chocolate? Studies even show that chocolate can benefit your health, as it has “a good effect on inflammation” (CNN).

Peep, peep, hooray! Next on the list are peep marshmallows, and they sure give chocolate bunnies some tough competition. The outstanding taste of melt-in-your-mouth marshmallows and just the right amount of sweetness will definitely turn your frown upside down.

Haribo Happy Hoppers Gummi Candy is last, but certainly not least. While they may not compare to a classic spring treat like Peeps, this candy is always a fan favorite. With a great blend of chewiness and sweetness, you cannot go wrong.
