General Easter Facts
- 70% of Easter candy purchased is chocolate.
- 15,873 lb is the weight of the Guinness World Records’ tallest chocolate Easter egg, coming in at 34 ft 1.05" tall.
- 76% of Americans think that people should start eating a chocolate bunny’s ears before any other body part.
- Bunnies are associated with Easter not because of Christianity, but because of a pre-Christian, 13th century Germany. The goddess of spring and fertility, Eostre, was symbolized by the rabbit.
- The first Easter bunny legend was documented in the 1500s. By the late 1600s, the first story with a rabbit laying and hiding eggs was published. German immigrants brought these legends to the United States in the 1700s.
- In 1953, it took 27 hours to create one Peep chick. Now, it takes six minutes.
- In the 1950s Peeps had their wings clipped, resulting in the shape that Peeps are today.
- If you were to take all of the peeps produced in one year, they would circle the earth twice.
- Peeps are the #1 non-chocolate brand at Easter and have been for more than 20 years.
