Easter is upon us, but let’s be honest, it’s never too early to start looking at various Easter and spring treats so we can celebrate the season with a little something sweet.

While about a dozen different varieties of Peeps and those Easter egg-shaped Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups will be making a triumphant return this year as always, there’s also a whole new crop of candies you should be on the lookout for this season, like Jet Puffed’s adorable bunny-shaped marshmallows.

If classically sweet candies and creamy chocolates are more your speed, don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of those too! Scroll down for a collection of new and quintessential treats that deserve a spot on your shopping list this spring.

Kit Kat Blueberry Muffin

Get the sweet, sweet taste of breakfast well after the morning hours with Kit Kat’s latest limited-edition, seasonal flavor: Blueberry Muffin. These purple-blue bars taste (and smell) fragrantly of fresh, cooked blueberries, along with a cake batter-like muffin flavor. Bits of graham cookie pieces are folded right in.


We’ll admit a bunny butt cake feels like an must-have for any Easter table, but if you’re pressed for time, opt for some vanilla-creme malted tails instead. Whoppers get a smart and simple flavor change for the occasion and taste festive as is or added to any bunny-themed sweet treat.


You can’t go wrong with a chocolate bunny! Hershey’s has updated its classic Easter treat with a new cookies and cream flavor. This white bunny is decorated with specs of pink, purple and blue thanks to crunchy cookie pieces scattered throughout.


Dressed in gingham, Hershey’s Kisses’ latest iteration is filled with luscious vanilla frosting. An extra burst of frosting just feels right to ring in sunnier days ahead.


Stuffed Puffs introduced a collection of pastel-colored marshmallows filled with chocolate. The treats come in a duo of dreamy hues — Sunflower Yellow and Bubble Gum Pink


Springtime baking just got an upgrade. Filled with graham cracker pieces, premier white chocolate morsels and strawberry-flavored chunks, these pretty in pink chocolate chips are perfect to fold into a batch of cookies, brownies or eat as a springtime snack.


Nothing sings spring like Kit Kat’s truly delicious Lemon Crisp. One lemon cookie-like miniature bar (or three) of this candy, and you’ll radiate with solar power.


Looking for an excuse to eat Oreos this Easter? This limited-edition batch of sandwich cookies stamped with cheerful festive images and filled pastel green marshmallow cream is bound to spring you into happiness. Snack with spring style!


If bunny-shaped marshmallows can’t get you in the spirit for Easter and the spring day to come, I truly don’t know what will! To brighten things up, each jet-puffed piece is tinted in a different shade of soft pastel green, purple, pink or yellow.


Because Easter jelly beans don't always need to be cloyingly sweet.


When the spring day is shining, the last thing you want to do is stay trapped inside your kitchen to bake something from scratch. That’s where this boxed cake mix comes in. It looks like sunshine and beckons to be eaten by the thickest slice in the sunshine.

Bed Bath & Beyond

Classic cookies and cream gets an Easter glow-up in these pastel polka dot mini eggs. You can’t help but pop them into your mouth, one immediately after another.
