As kids, we always looked forward to different holidays with excitement and anticipation. Now as parents, the fun has shifted to prepping and planning for our own children, and rewarded by the payoff of witnessing the happiness on their faces, when it all comes together. Christmas is definitely the mack daddy, but Easter is another biggie. In addition to learning about Easter’s importance in church, the Easter bunny leaves behind baskets filled with fun treats and gifts.
I typically start holiday prep early but this year Easter is sneaking up on us. Chocolate is a staple in most Easter baskets, so we planned a trip to Lindt Chocolate Shop on 5th Avenue. I was expecting to get some LINDOR Truffles, but I was pleasantly surprised to find the store lined with tons of the Lindt GOLD BUNNY. The bunnies, along with little Easter chicks and bright colors decorating the shop, reminded us that spring is just around the corner. We were as happy as kids in a candy shop. Literally.
There are over 50 Lindt Chocolate Shops across the U.S. with mounds of their signature LINDOR truffles and a Lindt GOLD BUNNY for everyone. It makes me so happy to fill little baskets with colorful LINDOR truffles, adorable easter chocolate figures and a sparkling Lindt GOLD BUNNY as the centerpiece.
LINDOR Truffles are one of my favorites, with the hard chocolate shell and smooth melting center. I am a huge Milk Truffle fan- their most popular treat in the red wrapper. With over 20 different flavors, let’s just say I went a little overboard. So the kids could try more than one flavor, we picked different truffles from LINDOR Pick & Mix display. We tasted one or two as soon as we walked out of the store, and their newest creation, blueberries and cream, is to die for.
This year, the kids will be making baskets for their little cousins, filled with all sorts of delights. The Lindt GOLD BUNNY is an Easter must, and I picked up some various sizes, to keep on hand, for last minute gifts for guests who might pop over.
I cannot wait to see the excitement on my littles ones faces come Easter morning. Their baskets will for sure be overflowing with assorted Lindt treats like chocolate carrots, chicks, eggs, little lambs and of course the iconic Lindt GOLD BUNNY—right on top!
