Cheetos Dusted With Sugar And Cinnamon Are Here For Easter
Posted at 1:15 PM, Mar 24, 2020

While you may think of chocolate bunnies or Cadbury eggs as the main treats of Easter, Cheetos is working its way into the conversation of sweet springtime snacks.

That brand — which specializes in orange-dusted cheesy eats — is bringing back a sweet twist on its normal offering. Available in stores this April for a limited time, Cheetos Sweetos Cinnamon Eggs are made with sugar and cinnamon and are, of course, shaped like Easter eggs!

With a light, puffy texture like traditional Cheetos, these new snacks also have a hint of an icing-like flavor but aren’t too sweet, so they make an ideal snack without overwhelming your taste buds. A 7-ounce bag will cost around $3.99 and if your Easter basket is big enough, this colorful package could definitely make a fun addition!


Oreo has also gotten in on the egg-shaped food trend this season, releasing limited-edition Easter-egg shaped golden Oreos. The cookies are pink and each package includes five festive designs.

Oreo also just released a new chocolate cookie Easter egg decorating kit that comes with two pre-made chocolate cookies shaped like eggs and pre-made icing, candy eggs and mini Oreo cookies for decorating.


Of course, you’ll also find the classic Easter candy staples like Reese’s Eggs back in stores and this year, another brand new Easter egg treat from the brand.

The new Reese’s Pieces Shake & Breaks are basically a toy and a candy in one. Not only do they rattle when you shake them, but the shell is edible and once you break through it, you’ll get a handful of Reese’s Pieces! They’re available now nationwide for around $1.69 each.


Other Easter candies that aren’t shaped like eggs include new lemon crisp Kit-Kats and raspberry-flavored Peeps to Peeps jelly beans and sour fudge bunnies from Russell Stover.

If you’re stuck at home because of the COVID-19 pandemic and don’t want to browse the store to put together an Easter basket, or are simply looking for something totally unique, you can even order a box of Easter candy and treats all the way from Finland through Universal Yums. The box will be available beginning in April and prices start at $13 for six or more snacks.
