Next to Halloween, Easter is the biggest candy-consuming holiday of the year. An estimated $14.7 billion is spent in total for Easter in the US.
Are you an ears, arms, or tail person? Seventy-six percent of people eat the ears on the chocolate bunny first, 5 percent go for the feet, and 4 percent for the tail.
During the holiday, more than 90 million chocolate bunnies, 91.4 billion eggs, and 700 million Peeps are produced each year in the United States alone.
