Zitner’s Chocolate Eggs: An Easter Tradition for Nearly a Century

When someone says “Easter candy” chances are the first thing that comes to mind is either a chocolate rabbit or a chocolate egg. While both are delicious, there’s nothing more decadent than a chocolate egg with a rich filling such as coconut cream or peanut butter.

This time of year, many of our customers look forward to one particular brand of chocolate Easter eggs – Zitner’s. A Philadelphia staple for over 100 years, Zitner’s makes over 6 million chocolate eggs every Easter.

If you’ve never tasted a Zitner’s egg, simply put – you don’t know what you’re missing. As soon as these delights arrive in our candy warehouse, our customer’s begin ordering them by the box full. After all, they’ve waited an entire year for these special treats.

By far, the most popular is Zitner’s Peanut Butter Eggs. The peanut butter filling Zitner’s uses in these eggs is probably the most rich, smooth, and delicious peanut butter you will ever taste. Couple that with their famous milk chocolate and you have perhaps the perfect piece of Easter candy.

For something a little more unique, we point you in the direction of the Zitner’s Butter Krak Egg. First introduced nearly a century ago, this egg features a toasted coconut and dark chocolate shell that you need to “Krak” thru to reach the sweet, creamy, buttery coconut center that will leave you weak in the knees!

Speaking of coconut, if you’re looking for a more traditional one we have the Zitner’s Coconut Cream Egg that features a delicious coconut center covered with their luscious dark chocolate. We’re pretty sure you won’t be able to have just one of these.

Since these are one of our more popular Easter treats, they sell quickly. If you’ve been waiting for them to arrive, we encourage you to order early to avoid being disappointed. We’re one of the few online candy stores that carry Zitner’s Easter Eggs, so if you’ve been searching for them – you’ve come to the right place.

Don’t forget to check out our entire selection of Easter candy to fill up baskets, use for egg hunts, or just enjoy as a once-a-year special treat.
