There are a number of interesting aspects of Easter that can be measured each year, and honestly, I was pretty surprised at what I found when I looked in to the holiday. Aside from the religious foundation that the time of year is predicated on, there are definitely a whole bunch of people eating a whole bunch of candy!
So just how big is Easter these days? and how much candy is being consumed? Here are the more interesting Easter 2016 sales statistics and fun facts I was able to dig up. As always, I will be adding more and updating these periodically as I find new stuff. Be sure to check back regularly.
Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don’t guarantee anything.
