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.

Fill Your Easter Eggs With Sweet, Delicious Egg Hunt Candy!

Mark your calendars! Easter this year will be celebrated on Sunday, April 4, 2021. One of the most popular traditions that families look forward to each Easter is a good, old-fashioned egg hunt.

If you think back to your own childhood, you know how excited you would be waking up Easter Sunday morning to go scurrying through the house and yard snatching up all the brightly colored Easter eggs that Peter Rabbit hid while you were sleeping.

But finding them was only half the fun! Sitting down and opening them up was an even greater event. Would there be candy inside? Maybe a quarter? Or perhaps a dollar bill! Whether it be candy, trinkets, or money there’s no doubt that the Easter egg hunt is the highlight of the day.

Marshmallow PEEPS are Back! Check Out What’s New for Easter 2021

While you were celebrating the new year by watching fireworks, popping champagne, and writing down a list of resolutions, we were a little preoccupied with a special delivery that was made to our huge candy warehouse!

Early in the morning on January 2, 2021 a few tractor trailers pulled up to our loading docks. Inside were pallets and pallets of bright yellow boxes.

“They’re here!”

Our warehouse team was excited to see the arrival of none other than Easter PEEPS! As you may recall, due to COVID-19, PEEPS were not manufactured for Halloween and Christmas in 2020. Raving fans of these marshmallow treats were more than disappointed to find out that these two major holidays would be celebrated PEEP-less.

Naturally, seeing a sea of PEEPS lining the aisles of our warehouse was a happy moment – a sense of normalcy was beginning to return. We all know that candy is the ultimate comfort food, and having PEEPS back in stock after a year brought smiles to everyone’s faces here at Blair Candy.

Now, you’re probably wondering if all the different types of Easter PEEPS are available this year? We’re happy to say…. Yes! There’s also some new ones to get excited about as well.

The classic PEEPS chicks and bunnies in a rainbow of colors are back! So are fun flavors such as the new Hot Tamales and the return of Party Cake, Sour Watermelon, Root Beer, Chocolate Pudding and more!

Yellow is the most popular selling color of Marshmallow PEEPS

 

We’re also welcoming some new flavors of PEEPS Delights – marshmallow PEEPS dipped in a variety of flavors including Milk Chocolate, Creme Fudge, Dark Chocolate and more.

PEEPS fans will also want to check out two new PEEPS Pops – Fruit Loops or classic flavored rainbow PEEPS on a stick.

We expect this year’s supply of PEEPS to go quick, so we’re encouraging you to order early! Check out the entire lineup of Easter PEEPS and be don’t leave without browsing all our delicious Easter candy.
