Houstonians love Hershey's milk chocolate for Easter, apparently.

Driving the news: The classic chocolate bar led Instacart's list of Houston's most-ordered candy during the week of Easter in 2023.

  • Reese's classic peanut butter cups came in second, with Reese's peanut butter eggs in third.
  • Lindt's hollow chocolate bunny was fourth, and Starburst's Easter jelly beans were fifth.

💭 Jay's thought bubble: I'm a devout Reese's apologist, particularly when the treat is of the egg, tree or football variety.

  • Something about the texture of the peanut butter glob surrounded by a thin, melty layer of chocolate found only in those kinds of Reese's gets me every time.

🍫 Shafaq's thought bubble: Don't get me wrong, I love a good Reese's chocolate. But they're available in some shape or form year-round. I use Easter time to stock up on limited-edition things, like Cadbury eggs (the obvious Easter chocolate winner, in my opinion).
