While kids might wish for an overstuffed Easter basket or a bounty of treats from that egg hunt, sometimes the smaller sized treats can bring a little whimsy to the event. With the new Hershey’s Easter candy offerings, mini-sized treats are taking over the food conversation.

During a holiday, indulgence is allowed. Whether it is a piece of candy before breakfast or an extra dessert serving at that lavish dessert, everyone seems to say yes to that sweet treat.

Sometimes a smaller sized option allows that willingness to say yes to that candy. Besides being cute in appearance, it avoids that dreaded negative word that should never be used around food. Everything and anything can and should be enjoyed in a positive food light.

Looking at the new Hershey’s Easter candy, favorite candies have received the mini-treatment. Speaking to the new offerings, Heather Seamans, Manager Spring & Innovation Strategy at The Hershey Company said, "Hershey takes pride in being the leader of the Easter season, consistently delivering innovative and delightful treats that become an integral part of cherished traditions. Reese's Peanut Butter Mini Eggs Unwrapped, along with our other Easter products, showcase our commitment to creating moments of joy and togetherness during this special time of the year."

What are some of the new Hershey’s Easter candy offerings?

The most exciting new Hershey’s Easter candy is the Reese's Peanut Butter Mini Eggs Unwrapped. While the classic Reese’s Egg will always be a favorite, the smaller, unwrapped, poppable candy changes the conversation. Whether it is grabbing one or two while passing through the kitchen or using the peanut butter chocolate candy in other desserts, the bag will be empty quickly.

Given that the Reese’s Peanut Butter Mini Eggs are unwrapped, they are perfect for snacking. It goes to show that a sometimes treat can help keep that balanced eating lifestyle on track.

Plus, Reese’s has maintained the perfect chocolate to peanut butter filling ratio. It is one of the reasons why this candy is always a favorite.

In addition, these treats would be perfect for the Easter dessert table. From the do-it-yourself cupcake bar to even an ice cream sundae bar, the options are many.

Other Hershey’s Easter candies are getting mini-makeovers. The Cadbury Caramello Miniatures are individually wrapped that make them great in a candy bowl or they can be used as décor on the holiday tablescape. Everyone loves that combination of creamy chocolate and luscious caramel.

Other new Hershey’s Easter candies include Hershey's Cookies 'N' Creme Polka Dot Bunnies. A different take on the classic chocolate bunny, the combination of sweetness, texture, and color makes it a top choice. For people who prefer sweeter candies, this option is a top choice.

For anyone who prefers bright, zesty flavors, the Kit Kat Lemon Crisp is a great choice. Now available in a larger size, it can be a great way to enjoy a taste of spring.

Lastly, other returning Hershey’s candies are back for another season. From Reese's Peanut Butter Bunnies to Cadbury Rainbow Mini Eggs, everyone will be able to enjoy their favorites for the holiday.

Both the new and returning Hershey’s candies can be found at various retailers. Check with stores for availability and pricing.
