Try ALDI's Affordable Alternative To Reese's Eggs

You get 16 Easter treats in a package for a bargain price.

A few years ago, I was using my grocery store's self-checkout lane just before Easter and spotted a display of Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs sitting on top of the screen. The eggs were $1 each, and I added one to my purchases. Trader Joe's sits them in front of the cash register as well, and other stores put their peanut butter eggs up front with the impulse buys too, no doubt because this marketing is so effective. Who can resist the best Easter treat of them all?

ALDI offers up an array of seasonal sweets for every holiday, and the biggest hits tend to make waves as word of mouth spreads. At Christmas, I came upon these wonderful dark-chocolate-covered mint marshmallow Christmas trees. This year for Easter, ALDI has impressed once again with Choceur Peanut Butter Bunnies, a bag of 16 individually wrapped milk chocolate bunnies with peanut butter filling. A 6-oz. bag retails for $3.99, and three bunnies are 180 calories.

Since ALDI shoppers regularly rave about the Choceur Peanut Butter Cups (available year-round), I took a bag of bunnies home with me and was pleased with my find. Each bunny is about an inch and a half long, with plentiful peanut butter filling inside. They taste quite rich, and you will likely be satisfied with just one or two. Since they are individually wrapped, you could divide up a bag among several Easter baskets.

Nothing tastes quite like Reese's eggs, and these bunnies aren't trying to imitate Easter's biggest seller—but Choceur's price is unbeatable for its quality. While ALDI has an entire lineup of Easter candy, from full-sized chocolate bunnies to filled eggs and more, these little guys are the highlight in 2024.

For a truly decadent Easter treat, make some big peanut butter blossom cookies and press these bunnies into the center of each one instead of a Hershey's Kiss. That will please all the folks who can't stand Peeps this time of year.
