Easter is this Sunday and that has a lot of people shopping for candy.

Candy aisles filled with steady traffic in Joplin as parents and grandparents picked what they will put in Easter baskets or hide in plastic eggs for the big hunt.

According to Wallethub dot com, nearly two and half billion dollars will be spent on candy this year.

But mom’s said other items also add to the cost of Easter, especially when it comes to the kids.

Rene Behrle said about spending, “I would venture to say somewhere close to a hundred dollars now. I buy special clothes, baskets, toys come with that, candy, lots and lots of candy. We do our own Easter egg hunt so we stock the candy like crazy!”

We talked to some kids at the library during story time about what they enjoy in their baskets. Chocolate was on many lists along with sour candy and some enjoy gum.

Wallethub’s survey said eighty-one percent of parents steal from their kids Easter baskets. Some said they do it all the time while they added their kids are often willing to share.
