Easter Fun Facts

April 14, 2017

What a better way to celebrate Easter with some fun facts.  Did you know when taking a bite into a chocolate bunny, 76% of Americans prefer to bite off the ears first. 5% eat the feet first and 4% eat the tail first?Each day throughout the year, 5 million marshmallow chicks and bunnies are produced in preparation for Easter. Sixteen billion jelly beans are made specifically for Easter.  Good Friday is an official holiday in 12 US states:   Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Jersey, North Carolina, North Dakota, Tennessee, U. S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.  The exchange of eggs for Easter dates back to a springtime custom older than Easter itself in which eggs were given as a symbol of rebirth in many cultures.  In the old days pretzels were associated with Easter because the twists of the pretzel were thought to resemble arms crossing in prayer.  Americans buy more than 700 million marshmallow peeps during the Easter holiday, which makes Peeps the most popular non-chocolate Easter candy.  Also, after Halloween, Easter is the biggest candy consuming holiday.
