First, THANK YOU! We've received many inquiries asking what is the best candy to donate for Easter egg stuffing. It's a great question -- when it comes to stuffing 12,000 eggs, all candy is not created equal.
It's actually pretty simple.
The best candy for stuffing eggs is always "fun size" bags of classics like M&Ms, Skittles, Snickers, etc. These fit perfectly into eggs.
Other good options are the variety packs of small miscellaneous chocolates.
The worst candy for stuffing eggs is any kind of lollipop, or any candy that is too large to fit a small 2" plastic egg.
But, no candy goes to waste. We use extra candy, or candy that is too big, as additional prizes at the egg hunt.
