In honour of everyone’s favourite bunnified holiday we thought we’d share some Easter fun facts:


  • 70% of Easter candy purchased is chocolate
  • Americans spend $1.9 billion on Easter candy. (that’s the second biggest candy holiday after Halloween!)
  • Egg dyes were once made out of natural items such as onion peels, tree bark, flower petals, and juices
  • The first story of a rabbit (later named the “Easter Bunny”) hiding eggs in a garden was published in 1680
  • 76% of Americans think the ears of a chocolate bunny should be the first to be eaten
