It's hard to go wrong with a gummi (that's a very interesting link).
These Trolli Gummi Bunnies, out long before Easter, are cute and tasty enough while losing some detail because of size, shape, and color. Let's face it, not many of us are going to be checking, but kids are into color and there's enough of a rabbit and pretty colors for almost anyone. I like the white ones best.
Trolli Classic Bears are some of my favs, and I know a few aficionados who foam at the mouth for Peachie Os, yet these gummy rabbits are heavy on the fruit flavor and taste a little powdery.

Even so, they're fine and fun and will go over well in a large basket, individually in a plastic egg, or as a single Easter treat.
Looking over Trolli's website, I realize I've never tried their Sour Cherry Bombers, about five years late on that one, but why does the package say "New?" 
I'm grabbing stuff off the shelves early this year and revisiting staples suck as Reese's Peanut Butter Easter Eggs, although not a big cup fan. I'm trying to build a virtual Easter basket which will include crowd pleasers and things that go well in a plastic egg.
Stay tuned and for heaven's sake brush your teeth.

I did two years of time at a community college in Stockton, CA. On super hot days (read, at least 90, probably 100) we used to think it was fun to lick the back of a gummi bear and stick it on the brick steps where we used to congregate. They melt in a really pretty way, kinda reminiscent of an Escher print.

That has very little to do with your post, but seeing the gummis lined up on the fence like that brought back memories. :)

Hey Kiddo, that is hi larious. You gots to take photos next time you do that.
I have to line candy up on fences and stuff cuz I don't have a removable flash and have to take most photos in the great outdoors. Which is kind of cool, but not by choice.
Gonna try that melting gummi thing next opportunity.
