~ Americans buy more than 700 Peeps during Easter season. Side note: when Matt used to drink coffee, he would drop a peep in it instead of sugar. He called it a Peepacino. I think he should market it to Starbucks.
~ 16 billion jelly beans are made for Easter. I wonder of that includes Bertie Botts Every Flavor bean.
~ Pretzels used to be associated with Easter because the twist in the middle resembled arms crossing in prayer.
~ The White House has hosted an Easter Egg Roll since 1978
~ The world's largest jar of jelly beans weighed 6,050 pounds. I might want to swim in that.
~ What do you go for in your Easter basket? 76% of kids go right for the chocolate bunny, followed by 18% for marshmallow treats, 17% for malted milk balls, and 16% for jelly beans. I feel like that doesn't add up. Anyway, I dove right for the peanut butter eggs and/or the Cadbury creme eggs. Ugh, I'm drooling.
Have a great Easter, everyone!
