BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – With Easter approaching fast, local candy shops are preparing for the rush a shoppers looking to fill their baskets.
At Oh Pour L’Amour Du Chocolat in Snyder, molded chocolate bunnies and other traditional Easter treats have been flying off the shelves for weeks. They’ve also added some new specialty items this year, including a brand new frozen creation. Peeps ice cream is vanilla flavored, with the multicolored bunny-shaped marshmallows mixed in.
“The Peeps ice cream came because it was Easter time, and we wanted to incorporate something that has that Easter feel,” owner Howard Cadmus said. “That’s traditional Easter, so we decided to play around with Peeps. We thought about doing it before, never executed it. We were able to pull it off this time, and it’s amazing.”
The ice cream is available for a limited time at the shop’s location on Main Street in Snyder.
