Fill Up Those Easter Baskets at NEPA’s Candy Shops

Easter’s Even Sweeter When You Shop Local

The sweet smell of chocolate is enough to bring back memories of egg hunts in the backyard and bountiful baskets on Easter morning. Giant chocolate bunnies, creamy peanut butter eggs and rainbow jelly beans are simply traditions, no matter how old you are. You’d think we’d grow up and learn to just settle for the ham, but that childhood sweet tooth never really goes away.

If you haven’t stocked up on sweets yet, you better hop to it. NEPA’s candy stores are full of locally made chocolates, handcrafted confections and other Easter goodies to help fill those baskets.
