Many of the top candy makers have scrubbed the word "Easter" from their advertising and packaging. Hershey's, M&M's, Lindor, Russell Stover, Dove, Rolo, and Twix have all produced Easter themed candy without mentioning the word on the front of their candy.
Cadbury was quick to point out somewhere in the fine print on the back of the candy there is the word "Easter." However, Cadbury is already on the bottom of a fur-flying kerfuffle in England for changing the name of a nationwide Easter egg hunt from the "Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt" to just the "Cadbury Egg Hunt."
As Christians around the world celebrate Easter, there are believers who are targeted by terrorists for their faith during this holy season. It is shameful these companies are so insensitive or hostile to Christianity by censoring the reason for the season on their candy wrappers.
You don’t have to be a Christian to enjoy Easter candy and participate in Easter egg hunts. It is disingenuous to think the word "Easter" will keep children from enjoying their candy.
