Why is Chocolate Associated with Easter?

It has become a tradition for most, hiding and finding chocolate eggs every Easter Sunday morning. But why do we associate chocolate with Easter? How and where did this tradition begin?

Before we answer those questions, we must start with Easter’s importance and what it signifies for Christians everywhere. Easter celebrates the rebirth of Jesus Christ. It was believed that Jesus was crucified on Good Friday and returned the following Sunday, Easter Sunday.

So, how did eggs become an Easter tradition? Christians believe that eggs are a symbol of rebirth and fertility and that the eggs represent the tomb in which they buried Jesus in.

In ancient times, during Holy Week, the week leading up to Easter, eating eggs was not allowed. So, instead of eating them, they would hide them for kids to find and decorate.

As for chocolate eggs and their origins, well, nobody knows why or how they became a tradition, but their origins date back to 1875 when Cadbury changed how they made chocolate by producing hollow chocolate eggs. And in 1905, Cadbury released milk chocolate eggs that we know and love.

How about that Easter Bunny? What role does he play in all of this? Well, baby bunnies are considered a symbol of new life, which correlates with the resurrection of Jesus.

Therefore, the tradition of the Easter Bunny was born. Now kids look forward to finding Easter eggs hidden around their house by this mythical creature.

At Lazar’s, we have plenty of Easter treats to go around. From traditional chocolate bunnies and eggs to chocolate-covered marshmallow peeps. But if you’re looking for something different, why not try chocolate-covered pretzels or an assorted box of chocolates.

And if you’re not sure what to give away, we also carry an Easter gift set that has an assortment of chocolates and jelly beans.

Speaking of jelly beans, they are also an Easter tradition because of their egg-shaped appearance, so if chocolates aren’t your thing, we have plenty of those. From jelly belly 49 flavors to licorice and everything in between.

Not into jelly beans, that’s okay. We have lots of other candies to satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth.

Why Chocolate on Valentine’s Day?

Valentine’s Day is that time of year when we celebrate how much we love and care for those close to us, whether they are a spouse, partner, child, or friend.

A few popular items that we give away are flowers, candies, and chocolates. But have you ever wondered why chocolate? How did this tradition start?

It all started in the 1840s when celebrating Valentine’s Day became a popular day to celebrate love by the English-speaking world. Victorians showered their loved ones with cards and gifts as a way to express their love for the holiday.

By now, Cadbury had developed a new way to enjoy chocolate. So, Richard Cadbury decided to get in on the craze by placing bite-sized chocolates into heart-shaped boxes and selling them.

Cadbury advertised the boxes as multifunctional because they were so pretty that people could use them to store trinkets and other items when all the chocolate was gone.

These boxes became popular until World War Two when Valentine’s Day celebrations were downsized due to saving sugar. Today, some families still have these Victorian- Era boxes in their possessions and are considered valuable by collectors.

In 1907, Hershey’s chocolate launched its famous “kisses,” which got its name from the sound the machine would make when producing the chocolates.

In 1923, Stover’s also started selling Valentine’s Day chocolates in heart-shaped boxes.

Today, Lazar’s carries various Valentine’s Day treats, and yes, some of these treats come in heart-shaped boxes. These boxes start at four ounces and go up to two pounds of chocolate. We also carry heart-shaped, foil-wrapped chocolates.

Does your special someone enjoy roses and chocolates? Well, you’re in luck because we have the best of both worlds, chocolate long stem mini, and long stem roses.

And if chocolate isn’t their thing, we carry Valentine’s candy such as cherry JuJu and jelly hearts.

It’s not too late to order your Valentine’s Day chocolate. For more information on how to place an order, visit our website or give us a call at 1(516)829-5785. We will answer any questions you may have. Contact Lazar’s today!
