Easter chocolate bunnies made from solid milk and dark chocolate.

The folks at Instacart have conducted a survey of the top Easter candies for their baskets and it’s not just jelly beans and peeps.

The sheer variety of candy options for kids now is amazing!

Long gone are the days of boring candy, these days kids can expect to find anything from Lindt  Chocolate Bunnys (not the generic kind we used to get every year) to the popular Kinder Chocolate candy egg.

51% of people who buy Easter candy will pick up some JELLY BEANS, which explains why two different varieties made the Top 10.  And 42% plan to grab at least one pack of Peeps.

In this survey, 66% of those who celebrate Easter plan to dye eggs, and 78% will eat the eggs they dye so nothing goes to waste.
