Did You Order your candy for your Easter Basket?

I was shocked at the orders I got for Easter candy this year. Good news for me but I just assumed that since everyone is pinching pennies that my orders would be way down this year. Well was I ever wrong! I have had more orders this year than I did last year. Here is a list of some of the things I make. Which one do you think I got more orders for? 6" hollow chocolate bunnies 4" solid chocolate bunnies peanut butter eggs maple filled eggs chocolate suckers One of these outsold the other by a landslide. Which one do you think it was? I'll let you know when you answer. I hope you all have a very Happy Easter!!!

I think it was the eggs. But then that is what my friends all eat. I'm not much of a candy person. And I don't do Easter Baskets with candy I make them myself and put in coloring books and colors and a kit to dye eggs and a apron as my great niece had lost her teeth already to bad eating and brushing habits that her grandmother doesn't stay on top of. As when she is with her Mom she does. But Mom is out of town at school. As the school is cheaper. Your friend onlydia

I would pick the solid milk chocolate bunnies...that would be my favorite. I do craft sales and the last one I did was the biggest I have ever had for sales...I think people are buying smaller things and staying away from the big ticket items so people like us will score! Good for you on all your orders!

I think you're right on it with people avoiding the "big ticket" items. My favorite is the solid bunnies too. But I am in the minority as peanut butter eggs took the prize! Thanks for the response and have a great Easter!

Well you heard right it was crazy this year! I closed up shop and everyone picked their stuff up today. I got one last minute order (you gotta love those last minute people! LOL) about an hour ago and they are coming to get it in a couple of hours! The suckers are usually the top seller but Peanut Butter eggs out did themselves this year! I ended up making 75 peanut butter eggs! Have a great Easter

If I was ordering, it would be the peanut butter eggs. With many people afraid to eat anything with PB in it, I would imagine that orders would reflect people's withdrawl symptoms. That's just me...a peanut butter junkie...

I for one never stopped eating peanut butter during the scare. I would have withdrawl symptoms almost as bad as for chocolate if I couldn't eat that...lol. There's been fewer PB candies for sale, so it only makes sense they yours would sell. PB and chocolate is a marriage made in heaven...

I did a couple of orders for Sunday School classes of suckers and small candy pieces. Peanut butter eggs were the biggest seller. I will be in church in the morning too! Hope you have a Happy Easter and May God Bless!
