Counting down to Easter with our favorite Easter candy: The classic hollow bunny

Bunny300 Happy Easter everyone!

We've counted down to Easter by celebrating some of our favorite Easter candies. What are your favorite Easter candies? On this, we can all agree: It just wouldn't be Easter without finding the classic hollow chocolate bunny in your Easter basket this morning. (Dontcha just want to bite his ear off?) And if you have one, there's a good chance it comes from R.M. Palmer Co.:

Price: $.99 to $11.99, depending on size

Where you can buy it: CVS, Amazon, 99 Cent Store, Ralphs, Stater Bros. and many other stores

Claim to fame: The hollow chocolate color Easter bunny with colorful packaging. The company is famous for giving its bunnies “Palmer Personalities” such as "Baby Binks," "Timid Timmy," "Flopsy" and "Wooly Willy.” One personality, “Da Bunny” comes with a yellow bling chain with a large “D.”

How it has changed over the years: There's a new basket bunny, a hollow mold made with a "Double Crisp confection," foiled in one of 3 color foils and packed into a themed window box. And there are now Easter "buddies," such as a bunny paired with a duck and a chick, also packed in themed window box.
