How did chocolate become an Easter tradition?

Posted by on

Rabbits, known to reproduce often with large litters, are an ancient symbol of fertility. Eggs are a symbol of new life and the use of Easter eggs in celebration of the Christian Easter holiday reflect ancient pagan practices related to the rites of spring. The Easter bunny legend arrived in America with German immigrants in the 1700s who spoke of an egg-laying hare and its fabled Easter morning deliveries.   These deliveries began with decorated eggs and, of course, expanded to include chocolate and other types of candy and gifts.

We know that flowers and animals return to their full glory after a long winter hibernation. To celebrate Easter and spring, Top This Chocolate has toppings in our builder including colorful malted milk eggs, gummy bunnies and other symbols of rebirth including gummy blossoms and butterflies to adorn your chocolate bar or squares.  These are limited edition through Mother's Day, so get them while they last!
