Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs may be one of the most beloved Easter candies of all time, but they officially have a new competitor: Reese’s Peanut Butter Carrots!
New Reese’s Peanut Butter Carrots are smaller than Reese’s eggs and individually wrapped, so you can scatter them in an Easter basket, keep them in a candy dish or put them inside plastic eggs to hide around the yard for an Easter egg hunt.
You can find them in 9-ounce bags now through Easter at select retailers, including Walmart, for around $2.98.
If nothing can replace the beloved egg-shaped Reese’s for you, don’t fret! Those are still around as well, and you can get your hands on them now through Easter.
Reese’s carrots and eggs are far from the only Easter candy from Hershey this year. Along with returning favorites like Cadbury Creme Eggs and Shake ‘n Break Eggs, new treats this year include Hershey’s milk chocolate Pip Bunny and milk chocolate Build-A-Bunny. You’ll also find new Reese’s Mallow-Top Peanut Butter Cups, which are in the same shape as a traditional Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup but have a marshmallow flavor on top.
There are also some spring Kit Kat flavors, including Lemon Crisp and brand new this year, Key Lime Pie. Available in stores for a limited time, the new Kit Kat Key Lime Pie has the same crispy wafer layers as original Kit Kats, but with a twist of key lime pie-flavored creme.
Aside from Hershey, tons of other Easter candy is in stores now as well. If you prefer gummy candies to chocolate, Welch’s has limited-edition Easter fruit snacks, and the American Licorice Company has new Lemon Blueberry Candy Straws, which look just like licorice but are blue and yellow and, obviously, a fun spring flavor.
Another Easter candy of note has a fresh take this year. Peeps has several new flavors of their beloved (and despised) marshmallow chicks, including party cake, sour watermelon, chocolate pudding and even Hot Tamale. These spicy new Peeps claim to have “fierce cinnamon” flavor, and the Peeps themselves are a firey shade of red.
Which Easter candy do you look forward to most every year?
