Easter Fun in Montrose!

Mary Dawson

It’s time for bunnies, baskets, candy, and eggs! If you have seen all the traditional candy from the big companies and want to give something unique that you won’t see elsewhere, Montrose Candy Co. (2317-A Honolulu Ave.) just may have what you are looking for. MCC is featuring custom Easter baskets, an assortment of buckets artfully arranged with fun candy. Some are lettered “Happy Easter.” All are nicely wrapped in cellophane, tied with ribbon, and have the MCC seal. Prices range from $5.50 to $16.50 per basket and they are so cute! They also have “Hello Kitty” lunchboxes made into Easter baskets.

If you just want something “little” to give there are custom Easter containers filled with jelly beans for $3.85. These containers can also be filled with their best selling “Smooth & Melty Ones,” pastel kiss-shaped candy decorated with nonpareils. There are also “Candy Cupcakes” with jelly bean icing and a giant gumball attached! They come in a clear gift box with ribbon.

If you need a few more things to tuck into your baskets you can grab some of MCC’s gourmet chocolate bars with flavors like Cappuccino Crunch, San Juan Dark Chocolate with Sea Salt, or a “Chocolove” Bar with a love poem inside.

Mountain Rose Gifts (3808 ½ Ocean View) has cornered the market on good taste Easter home décor.  Here you will find Easter figurines from small to large that are perfect for gift-giving and collectors. My favorite is the giant sparkly bunny perched on a pastel egg.  It makes a great centerpiece for your Easter dinner table and is only $29.95. There are also lots of different chicks, eggs and plush bunnies.

Mountain Rose also specializes in gourmet food gifts, perfect for thank you and housewarming gifts. They just received a line of confits made in France with flavors like “Confit of Rose Petals”. It’s a light jam that contains real rose petals and actually tastes like roses smell – beautiful to look at and to taste. MR is happy to gift wrap your purchase in one of their special Spring-themed gift bags. To see more, check out their website, www.mountainrosegifts.com.  Happy Spring!

See you in Montrose!
