List Rules Candy specifically marketed for the Easter holiday, including pastel and spring motifs

The best Easter candy choices range from traditional classics to newer, contemporary favorites. Whether it's the classic chocolate covered Easter bunny or the newer milk chocolate-dipped Chicks, everyone's Easter basket should come with something sweet. Candy is a big, big part of the Easter holiday, and this list includes some of the best picks to fill up those Easter baskets. See your personal favorite listed? Vote it up! And, if you see an Easter candy listed that you just can't stand, vote it down. This list includes some excellent Easter candy, but if something's missing, feel free to add it.

Some of the most popular candies for Easter include Peeps, those strange, spongy, marshmallow-y little chicks full of fluffy, sugary goodness. Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs are another big hit, because really -- who doesn't think that combining chocolate and peanut butter is a stellar idea? And of course, no list of the best Easter candy would be complete without the almighty Cadbury Egg. People seem really divided about Cadbury Eggs -- they either adore them, or they hate them with a white-hot passion. Love 'em or hate 'em, there's no denying that Cadbury Eggs are here to stay. In recent years, Cadbury's Caramel Eggs have gained in popularity too.

The selections of Easter candies seem to get larger with each passing year, but a few constants remain. These are the confectionery delights that are found in almost everyone's Easter basket. I'm talking about jelly beans, pastel M&Ms, mini-chocolate eggs and yes, a giant, chocolate Easter bunny (extra points if you get a solid bunny, those last so much longer). And if you just can't stand the idea of waiting until Halloween to munch out on some candy corn, you don't have to: pastel candy corn aka bunny corn is all the rage for Easter.
