6. Chocolate Bunnies
Maker: Every candy manufacturer
As the centerpiece of the most coveted Easter baskets, no Easter is complete without the chocolate bunny. We're always happy with the jelly beans and the many varieties of chocolate eggs, but the bunny—perched in the box, giving you a profile view of all its glory—was the pinnacle of Easter excellence. It was the one item you refused to share, because if you broke a piece off, shards of chocolate would fall into its hollow body.
But how excited were you when you bit the ear off of that bunny's chocolate form and discovered that it was a solid mass of heaven? You didn't find the most eggs during the hunt, but you got the ultimate prize. That was enough.
