Easter is my favorite holiday. I’ve carried on the tradition of creating personalized baskets for my family. This year after being asked by Whole Foods Market to do a promo on “Building a Better Easter Basket,” I hopped (get it?) at the opportunity. My mission was to create a basket with items from Whole Foods Market and I was successful using treats free of artificial flavors, artificial colors, artificial preservatives and artificial sweeteners. I was also able to include some unique alternatives to candy for a change.
Pictured above are the items I bought at Whole Foods Market– Tulips, Sunny Patch Buggy Pail, Sunny Patch Bubbles, Froth Bath Bomb, Lake Champlain Chocolate Bunnies (white, milk and dark chocolate flavors), Marich Caramel Robin Eggs, Surf Sweets Organic Jelly Beans (which have become an instant FAVORITE), clementines and bulk food items to fill the eggs with. In addition to the above mentioned, Sunny Patch has a great variety of spring items like gardening tools, outdoor balls, sprinkler toys and more if you’d rather forgo the sweet treats. Also found in the Easter section at Whole Foods Market are animal themed baskets, greeting cards and stuffed animals.
To prepare for the egg hunts you may be planning, check out the bulk section for the goodies to fill your eggs. With an elaborate selection of dried fruit, nuts, covered pretzels and other sweets, the bulk section allows you to take as much as you’d like or as little as you need while saving money on only what you want. An added bonus for those of you dyeing eggs, Whole Foods Market has a recipe for you to dye the eggs naturally this season!
