Easter Baskets and Candies of the 1950's and 60's

If you have a sweet tooth and grew up in the 1950ís and 60ís, Easter was a wonderful time of year. Easter baskets were used to collect the eggs you found out on the hunt, but they were also used to hold all your sweet Easter goodies. Some of the most popular Easter treats were: Reeseís Peanut Butter Eggs, Robinís Eggs, Peeps, Cadbury CrËme Eggs, and jelly beans.

And, of course, who could forget the chocolate Easter Bunny? During the Easter season, school-aged children would swarm the five-and-dime stores of the day, F.W. Woolworthís and S.S. Kresgeís (the predecessor to K-mart). Inside the variety stores, there were rows upon rows of chocolate bunnies in colorful pastel cardboard boxes with cellophane windows. Bunnies, as small as two inches tall, were made of solid chocolate, but the giant foot-tall variety of chocolate bunnies were hollow with sugar candy eyes.

If you lived in a typical household back then, Mom or Grandma made a big production of designing special Easter baskets for each child. Easter baskets were lined with green or clear cellophane straw and filled with the particular candy favorites of each recipient. Frequently, there were plastic break-apart eggs filled with nickels, dimes and pennies. (That was a fortune to a child back in those days!) When you came home from church, dressed in your Sunday best, your Easter basket, filled with all the delicious Easter candy and plush bunnies, would be waiting for you on the dining room table.

Easter is every bit as exciting today, for kids of all ages, as it was back then. Send one of our delightful Easter baskets to that special grandchild, best friend or good neighbor.

They'll be glad you did!

My sister called to let me know the gift baskets arrived and she was very happy with both baskets. Thanks you for your speedy reply and help. I will use this service again. The gift baskets looked wonderful! ~Thanks again, Kerissa Dakini
