Why Jelly Beans Make Great Easter Egg Treats

wockenfuss candies jelly beans

Jelly beans are not only sweet, but perfect for Easter.

If you celebrate Easter with kids in your family, jelly beans can be a crucial holiday component. While many people give each other boxes of chocolates, or chocolate eggs or bunnies, jelly beans can be an equally appropriate and fun gift for Easter. Additionally, jelly beans are perfect for hiding inside Easter eggs during your Easter egg hunt. What is it that makes jelly beans such great Easter egg treats? Read on to find out, and learn which jelly bean products you can find at Wockenfuss Candies. 

Jelly Beans are Small and Portable

One of the factors that make jelly beans excellent Easter egg treats is their size. Jelly beans are tiny enough that it is easy to toss a few, or even several, inside one standard plastic Easter egg. Kids love hearing the sound of delicious jelly beans rolling around in their Easter eggs, and will enjoy these snacks as a reward for their egg-hunting skills. 

Flavors for Everyone to Enjoy

Another key factor that makes jelly beans appealing to most children is their variety of flavors. You can even decide to separate jelly beans by color and flavor throughout your Easter eggs or mix them up for a surprise assortment – no matter which handful of jelly beans kids receive, they will find at least a few that they love. At Wockenfuss Candies, you can buy an assortment of jelly beans that come in 49 different flavors! Or you can purchase bulk packages of some of the most popular Jelly Belly flavors like Berry Blue, Buttered Popcorn, Juicy Pear, and Tutti Frutti. 

Jelly Beans Make Less Mess 

When comparing the most popular Easter candies – jelly beans and chocolate – jelly beans have one major advantage: chocolate quickly melts when under the sun or held too long in a child’s hands. When you use jelly beans as Easter egg treats, you don’t have to worry about them melting while sitting inside the egg, waiting to be found. 

If you’re looking for a way to add some fun to your Easter holiday, using jelly beans as surprise Easter egg treats can be a great way to appeal to both kids and kids at heart.
