Edible April Fools Jokes From Hilliards Chocolates

Have you heard the news? There’s a worldwide chocolate shortage! Hurry now and stock up before it’s all gone!

Did you fall for that one? April Fools!

Nobody knows exactly how the tradition of playing pranks on April Fool’s Day began, but one possibility is a Greco-Roman celebration called Hilaria, which was held the day after the vernal equinox and celebrated the advent of spring (the new year at the time) with parades, jokes and masquerades.

Whether you believed our little joke or not, April Fool’s Day is a great time to purchase delicious chocolates from Hilliards Chocolates.

We’d particularly like to recommend our unique bacon and eggs candy, which we invented in the 1950s as an April Fool’s joke, but has grown in popularity ever since and is now one of our best-loved offerings. The “egg” is made of refreshing, melt-in-your-mouth peppermint, and the bacon is created from chewy sweetened coconut.
