Eighty-one percent of parents steal Easter candy from their kids, according to a survey by the National Confectioners Association.
89 percent first eat the ears off of a chocolate Easter bunny; 6 percent eat the feet first, and 5 percent the tail.
24 percent listed cherry as their favorite jelly bean flavor; 19 percent named strawberry; 15 percent said licorice, and 12 percent said lemon.
As not-very-religious Jews, we decorated eggs at Easter time, but I don’t remember much candy. My grandfather was in the candy business — he loved Easter — but my mother said sugar was bad for our teeth.
