New Spring and Easter Candies You Need to Try in 2021
The sweets aisle is in full bloom.
Easter is still a few weeks away, 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. For example, Reese’s recently debuted Mallow-Top Peanut Butter Cups, which add a decadent layer of marshmallow-flavored creme to the already popular candy.
If sour morsels are more your speed for spring, check out Sour Patch Kids Watermelon Jelly Beans, which make an ideal filling for those plastic Easter eggs and boast that perfect sour-then-sweet balance.
