Hershey's Easter Candy

I never understood why there is certain candies for certain holidays. I understand maybe changing the coloring of the candy or the shapes to make them coincide with the holidays, but why make certain candies only available during those times?

I always get so excited when Valentine's Day is over and all the Easter candy comes out on the shelves. This is the only time out of the year that my absolute very candy is available to purchase in stores, Hershey's candy coated milk chocolate eggs. Hershey's Easter EggsI have tried again and again to find a candy similar to this candy but none compare. I don't understand why these are only available for the Easter season. Hershey's could easily just change the color of the candy coating and make this product available year round.

The only positive about not having this candy year round is that I will stay healthier. In one bag of these Hershey's Candy Coated Milk Chocolate Eggs the nutrition facts are:

  1. I completely agree about Easter candy, it is definetly my favorite candy. Especially Peeps I only get them during Easter.
    However I never tried these Hershey Easter eggs but they do sound really good and it is pretty sad that they only have them out once a year.
    So I guess now I'm going to have to wait til next Easter to try them.

  2. I truly understand why article. I've been scouting around for this! Thank goodness I discovered that on Bing. You cash in on my own day time! Thx once more!
