Even though it’s later in the year than usual, Easter is fast approaching. Easter can fall anywhere between March 22nd and April 25th, although the earliest and latest dates are quite rare. No matter what the date, here at Fazio’s we are fully prepped with awesomely delicious Easter treats for young and old! Most people associate this happy event with chocolate, more specifically, chocolate eggs. Many practicing Christians practice abstinence from something during the period of Lent and often this means eliminating chocolate or sweets. Easter is the celebration of Christ’s resurrection from the grave and signifies the end of fasting or abstinence period.
Easter Chocolate eggs became incredibly popular throughout history and the custom spread all over the world in a multitude of different variations, including eggs filled with chocolate, other sweets, and even toys. While the chocolate Easter egg is certainly a holiday staple, there’s an endless variety of chocolates you can include in your Easter baskets this year.
Fazio’s Chocolates loves tradition, and because of that we make our delicious artisan chocolate truffles available for pick-up and delivery in our beautiful easter egg boxes or if your loved ones are not local, Fazio’s now offers shipping throughout the United States.
