Milk Chocolate Eggs are covered in brightly coloured foil and are simply irresistible. These egg-shaped treats would be perfect for an Easter egg hunt for the kids (and adults!) or simply as a treat for yourself this Easter. There are many beliefs about the origin of the chocolate Easter egg that we have today, however the first eggs given at Easter were bird’s eggs. These eggs were painted in bright colours to give them further meaning and were given as a gift. Chocolate eggs are guaranteed to put a smile on anybody’s face this Easter, whether scavenged in a hunt or simply given as a gift from a loved one.  

Personalised Easter Sweet Jars are filled to the brim with Easter-themed delights including Malteasers, White Mice and Chocolate Bunnies. Available in both a small and large size to suit any budget, this jar of goodies is guaranteed to beat any old boring Easter Egg and can be made even more special with your own personal message printed on the sticker.  This jar is a perfect gift for a family member or friend to wake up to this Easter and should keep their sweet tooth occupied for a while! 

Another fun Easter treat is Easter Bunny Pops. These large bunny-shaped Lollies look almost too cute to eat and are presented in a colourful box. This would make a fun gift from the Easter Bunny, along with delicious White Mice or an old classic - Poppets - a guaranteed crowd pleaser! The Easter Bunny is said to come from an Anglo-Saxon legend in which a goddess found a wounded bird and transformed it into a hare so it could survive the winter. The hare found it could lay eggs, so every year it would decorate it and leave it as an offering. Nowadays, the Easter Bunny is known to leave delicious sweets and treats for children. 

There is no better time for novelty treats than Easter. Why not brighten up the house with a sprinkle of Jelly Carrots?! These orange flavoured delights are perfect for a sweet fix throughout the day, or a perfect after-dinner treat for the kids. You can even pretend you’re getting one of your 5 a day! Shhh! We won’t tell if you don’t!  

Another brilliant use for Easter Sweets is in Easter bakes and cakes. A true childhood favourite is Easter Nests. Get yourself some shredded wheat and melted chocolate and these treats couldn’t be easier to make! These are a great fun snack to make for both kids and adults alike and can be decorated with a whole host of delicious Easter Sweets. Either stick with classic pastel Chocolate Mini Eggs for the true ‘nest’ effect or why not mix it up with fruity Fried Eggs, bobbly White Stars or even fun Jelly Bean Eggs? You could even try Easter brownies, cupcakes or cookies with any of our Easter Sweets for a brilliant spring treat - you’re sure to be popular amongst friends and family! 

Easter is famously associated with all things pastel. From spring chicks to colourful flowers - Easter Sweets are no exception to this theme! Here at Keep It Sweet we have plenty of pastel and spring coloured sweets to add a splash of colour to your Easter decorations and to really add to the whole Easter theme. Foam Shrimps and Bananas are just one of the pastel themed sweets we have on offer and are a true childhood classic - not only do they taste oh-so delicious but they come with a side helping of nostalgia and memories from years gone by! Another absolute classic are Bon Bons. Available in a huge variety of different flavours - from lemon to toffee - these chewy delights are a true traditional sweet shop staple and were a favourite for spending our pocket money on! Candy Letters were another childhood favourite that you could tie into the Easter colour scheme. These colourful alphabet shaped treats are so darn fruity that you’ll never want to stop spelling!
