3 Easy Ways To Get Rid of Your Easter Candy

So, you went a little nuts with the Easter Candy this year.

It happens to the best of us. But now you’re stuck with more sweets than you know what to do with, and the guilt is starting to kick in.

Don’t worry, we’ve got your back. It’s time to bid farewell to the Easter candy overload and reclaim your kitchen, according to TheTakeout.com.

First things first, gather up all those baskets of temptation and take inventory. Sort through the goodies and separate them into piles: keep, donate, and toss. Be ruthless!

If it’s already half-eaten or something you know you won’t enjoy, it’s time to say goodbye.

Next up, let’s talk about the “keep” pile.

These are the candies you simply can’t part with (we all have our weaknesses). But here’s the deal: moderation is key. Set aside a small portion to enjoy over the next few days, and then stash the rest away for later. Trust us, your future self will thank you when you’re not in a sugar-induced coma.

Now, onto the “donate” pile.

Spread the love and share the sweetness with others who might not have been as fortunate this Easter. Local shelters, food banks, or even your neighbors will appreciate the gesture. Plus, it’s a win-win – you get to declutter while spreading joy.

Last but not least, let’s tackle the dreaded “toss” pile.

Yes, it’s painful to say goodbye to perfectly good candy, but sometimes it’s necessary for the greater good (aka your waistline). Dispose of expired or stale treats responsibly, and resist the urge to sneak a few last bites. Your body will thank you later.

Now that you’ve dealt with the aftermath of Easter candy overload, it’s time to move forward with a fresh mindset.

Remember, indulgence is okay in moderation, but balance is key. So, bid farewell to the excess sweets, reclaim your kitchen, and get ready to tackle whatever comes your way – one chocolate bunny at a time.

  • Freeze It

    Storing your excess Easter candy in the freezer preserves its freshness for future cravings. Place wrapped candies in an airtight container deep in the freezer for up to a year without quality degradation. Milk chocolate, white chocolate, hard candies, and gummies all fare well frozen. Alternatively, unopened marshmallow Peeps remain fresh for months at a cool temperature of 60 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit with 45% to 50% humidity.

  • Compost It

    If the thought of discarding a partially eaten chocolate bunny troubles you, consider composting it instead of tossing it in the trash. Liam Donnelly, CEO of WasteNot Compost, suggests that popular Easter treats like Peeps, jelly beans, and chocolate can all be composted in a standard bin. Although the packaging may not be compostable due to treatment with incompatible substances, the food itself is suitable for composting. Seeing marshmallow Peeps alongside Easter ham scraps in the compost heap may seem amusing, but it’s a more environmentally friendly option than sending them to the landfill.

  • Donate It

    When considering donations to local food pantries, canned goods often come to mind, but unopened candy packages are also appreciated additions. Most facilities gladly accept candy donations, so it’s worth checking their website, social media, or calling ahead to confirm. By donating candy, you not only share the joy of Easter sweets with others but also contribute to extending the season for those in need.
