The National Confectioners Association says that the average U.S. shopper celebrating Easter will spend $145.13 on candy, decorations and food. That’s only $0.15 less than last year.
The association also says that Americans will buy about 180 million eggs to dye and decorate for the holiday.
Speaking of candy, here are a few more fun-facts about Easter treats:
- It takes workers at the Just Born Candy Company a whole 6 minutes to make a marshmallow “Peep.”
- 76 percent of people bite the ears of a chocolate bunny first. Only 10 percent go for the tail.
- 35,000 people are expected to attend the White House Easter Egg Roll on Monday.
