For 2015, Nestlé has expanded their collection of Easter chocolate to include items featuring the Peanuts® Gang.
I was provided with product samples at no cost to me. I did not accept monetary compensation for writing about these products or about my experiences related to them. All opinions expressed are my own.
According to the National Confectioners Association, Easter ranks as the nation's second top-selling candy holiday behind Halloween. In fact, candy tops the list of gifts that consumers shop for during the Easter season. This year, Nestlé's® Easter candy collection is offering something for everyone in the family to enjoy, including some brand-new chocolate products featuring Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts® Gang.

Nestlé's popular NestEggs are now available in four different varieties:
- Nestlé Butterfinger NestEggs
- Nestlé Crunch NestEggs
- Nestlé Crunch Peanut Butter-Filled NestEggs
- Nestlé Crunch Creamy Caramel-Filled NestEggs
Of course, I had to try all four to see which one I liked the best. It didn't surprise me that I favored the Caramel-Filled NestEggs over the others... there's just something about the combination of caramel and chocolate that I find simply irresistible.
When I was a child, I always thought the best part of my Easter basket was the chocolate bunny. That's why I love idea of the Nestlé® Crunch® Snoopy and the Nestlé® Butterfinger® Bunny. Such sweet twists on a traditional Easter treat!
It doesn't hurt that they're both made of solid milk chocolate either. ;-)
Another new sweet Easter treat being offered by Nestlé® this year is their Nestlé® Crunch® Shareable Medallion featuring the iconic duo of Snoopy and Woodstock. Break it in half and share it with a friend or loved one!
Prefer something a little more sweet and sour? Then I'm sure you'll be pleased to hear that there are Easter varieties of the popular SweeTARTS® and Nerds®, as well. Like these SweeTARTS® Chicks, Ducks & Bunnies... aren't they adorable?
Almost too cute to eat.
If you like regular SweeTARTS®, then you may want to try SweeTARTS® Chewy Sours, a new product in Nestlé's 2015 collection of Easter candies. In shades of spring colors, the Chewy Sours deliver a sour punch right at the beginning, but once the hard candy exterior melts away, you're left with a sweet chewy center that balances everything out.
I became addicted to them right away and wound up eating way more than the suggested serving size of 10 pieces. I had to hide the candies in the pantry to prevent myself from eating the entire bag in one sitting!
Looking for more candy that's dressed for spring? Grab a box of the Hoppin' Nerds and try not to eat the "tiny, tangy, crunchy candies" by the handful.
Unless, of course, that's the way you'd prefer to do it. I won't judge you. Because, honestly, that's how I eat them... when no one's looking (obviously).
Another fun Nerds candy that would be a great addition to your Easter baskets this year? The Nerds Rope!
Before writing this blog post, I had never heard of Nerds Rope before. But once I opened the package to get a closer look, I was totally intrigued. The rope consists of a gummy strand that's been covered with the brightly colored Hoppin' Nerds, so what you're getting is a candy that's soft and chewy on the inside and hard and crunchy on the outside. Win-win, if you ask me!
