Easter is right around the corner, and that means one thing: candy, and lots of it. But let’s be real, not all Easter treats are created equal. From the bizarrely flavored jelly beans to the solid chocolate bunnies that could double as a doorstop, we’ve all encountered those Easter candies that make us go, “Who actually eats this?” So here’s a list of the worst offenders in the Easter candy world. Do you agree or is your favorite on here?

Peeps are the Marmite of Easter candy: you either love them or hate them. Their overly sugary, spongy texture can be a turn-off, and they seem to last forever, popping up in your pantry months after Easter. Sure, they’re cute and fitting for an Easter celebration but we’ll take a real marshmallow any day over a Peep.

Oreo Creme Eggs

While the idea of an Oreo cream-filled egg sounds amazing, the execution falls short. They’re often too sweet, with the creme overpowering the chocolate, making them a one-note wonder that quickly wears out its welcome. The classic creme egg is also divisive but most seem to prefer it to the Oreo version.

Solid Chocolate Bunnies

The solid chocolate bunny is a classic, but let’s be honest, they’re often made of cheap, waxy chocolate. They’re hard to eat, and you might spend more time wrestling with them than actually enjoying the taste. Give us a hollow chocolate bunny any day, it’s just the perfect amount of chocolate.

Jelly Beans

Jelly beans often get a bad rap for their inconsistency. You might find yourself enjoying a sweet burst of cherry, only to be ambushed by an earwax-flavored surprise. Their unpredictable flavor adventure lands them on the worst list and the generic brands are the absolute worst offenders.

Easter Candy Corn

Candy corn is divisive at Halloween, and its Easter version is no different. The pastel colors might be cute, but the flavor remains the same: overly sweet and waxy, making it a less-than-desirable Easter treat.

Twix Eggs

Twix Eggs seem like a dream come true for Twix lovers, but the ratio is all wrong. There’s too much caramel and not enough cookie, throwing off the beloved balance that makes a Twix a Twix.

Chicks & Rabbits Marshmallows

These marshmallows try to hop into the festive spirit but end up being overly sweet and strangely textured. They’re often more about the look than the taste, making them a disappointing addition to the Easter basket not much different than Peeps.

Tootsie Roll Eggs

Tootsie Roll Eggs take the familiar chocolatey chew and encase it in a hard shell, but this isn’t necessarily an improvement. The texture clash between the shell and the chewy inside makes for an awkward eating experience. Stick to the original if you’re into Tootsie Rolls.

Chocolate Crosses

While they’re meant to celebrate the season, chocolate crosses come across as a weird symbolic gesture of the holiday. It’s just a bit off-putting to be chowing down on candy that’s a literal torture device.

Chocolate Coconut Nests

These might look adorable, but the combination of textures and flavors doesn’t always hit the mark. The coconut can be too stringy, and the chocolate too bland. Most critics also happen to be coconut haters so it comes as no surprise this isn’t a favorite among them.
