We love the Easter Bunny; however, sometimes it seems like he really likes to bring the same candy, year after year. (Yes, they’re some of our favorites–but, something different would be delicious, too!) Maybe this year, for Easter, it’s time to give that bunny a hand, or a hint. This year, send him to Anoka for some candy (or just stop in yourself)! We have such a fun selection of nostalgic, childhood favorites that are sure to be different than the candy he’s delivered in years past (and probably different than the kids have seen before)!
It’s fun to shop Sweet River for Easter candy for so many reasons! We absolutely love that you can really customize what you’re buying here, as opposed to buying an entire bag of one thing. (Like at the big box stores.) If one of the kids loves peanut butter, but the other doesn’t–it’s easy to just buy what you need.
Another reason, like we mentioned above–the variety is so fun! We have things that you probably haven’t seen in years, let alone tasted, and those things are exciting to pass down. Your kids (or grand kids) may not like Candy Buttons, Chick-O-Sticks and Fruit Stripe Gum but, at least they got to try them! (IF that’s the case, where they don’t care for the classic stuff, you’ll just have to eat it then–you know, as to not waste it :) )
Our favorite reason to shop Sweet River for Easter candy though, is that it allows you to bypass the crowds and commercialism at the big box stores and, instead, support small, local business while enjoying a quieter, more personal, shopping experience in a small town atmosphere. (Well, that and all the candy…that might be a favorite too perhaps ;) )
