For better or for worse, Easter is associated with candy, and lots of it. Supermarkets and big-box stores have had displays of chocolate rabbits and Peeps set up for weeks now, in anticipation of the April 20 observance.

See’s and Lindt are two familiar chocolatiers, but another player is SweetWorks of Buffalo, N.Y. The family-owned company has made and shipped chocolates globally since 1956. Much of it is nut-free, gluten-free and kosher.

As a sidebar, the company holds the Guinness record for making “the world’s largest Jawbreaker.”

SweetWorks manufactures chocolates and candies under several brands, some more familiar than others — Niagra, Celebration, Ovation, Oak Leaf, Sixlets and Nerds.

SweetWorks offers a line of Easter candy that includes chocolate eggs, bunnies and chicks, which are populating Sacramento-area stores now. To see SweetWorks’ complete confections lineup, click here.
