Zitner’s Easter Eggs – a Tradition for Nearly a Century

For chocolate fans, there’s no better time than Easter to indulge in many decadent treats created just for the holiday. Shortly after the Christmas decorations come down we start getting emails and calls from customers wanting to know if one of their favorites has arrived in stock yet – Zitner’s Eggs.

Zitner’s Candy, from Philadelphia, has been making chocolate eggs for nearly 100 years and they are extremely popular! How popular? Well, they sell over 6 million chocolate Easter Eggs every year. Each one is made with the original recipe that has been handed down for generations.

Fans of Zitner’s wait all year to get a taste of these scrumptious treats that come in a variety of flavors.

Zitner’s Butter Krak Eggs
A true fan favorite and one that has been featured on the Food Network. These delicious chocolate covered Easter Eggs have a sweet, creamy, buttery coconut filling and to get to it you have to break through the toasted coconut and dark chocolate shell. In the words of one of our customers, “these are the best Easter eggs ever!


Zitner’s Cocoanut Cream Eggs
These chocolate covered Easter eggs go out the door as quick as they come in, and for good reason. Inside this chocolate covered egg is the most delicious and creamy cocoanut filling you will ever taste. One bite and we’re sure you won’t be able to have just one.


 

Zitner’s Peanut Butter Eggs
Many regard Zitner’s Peanut Butter Eggs as the “best of the best” and we won’t argue with that! The combination of Zitner’s rich milk chocolate and creamy peanut butter filling makes our mouths water just thinking about this classic Easter candy.

While Easter may be several weeks away, we sell out of Zitner’s Easter Candy quickly, so be sure to order soon so the Easter Bunny can place these delicious sweets in your basket.

Chocolate Coins – a St. Patrick’s Day Tradition

“At the end of every rainbow lies a pot of gold.” That phrase instantly brings visions of a happy-go-lucky leprechaun guarding an overflowing cauldron of bright gold coins, or, a favorite breakfast cereal!

Whichever image it conjures up for you, there’s no mistaking the mascot of St. Patrick’s Day – a holiday celebrated each year on the 17th of March. While St. Patrick’s Day was celebrated by the Irish dating back to 1000AD, it was first celebrated here in the United States in 1737 in the country’s most Irish city – Boston.

Holidays all have their candy cousin, such as candy canes for Christmas, heart shaped lollipops for Valentine’s Day, and chocolate rabbits for Easter. St. Patrick’s Day is no exception, and we owe the choice of sweets to our friend the leprechaun.

The St. Patrick’s Day candy that’s most associated with the holiday is none other than chocolate coins wrapped in shiny gold foil to represent the coins in the leprechaun’s overflowing pot.

These chocolate coins are a favorite treat that can be used in decorations or handed out as gifts to youngsters of all ages. Our selection of chocolate coins come in either quarters or half-dollars and are available in 2 and 24 pound packages.

If you’re looking for something “green” to hand out with all that “gold,” we have some other St. Patrick’s Day candy such as classic spearmint leaves jellies, green cotton candy, green lollipops and more including green candy in bulk for creating a candy buffet for school or work.
