BOSTON, March 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- UnReal® today announced that it has partnered exclusively with Whole Foods Market® (NASDAQ: WFM) North Atlantic Region stores to give families a better choice for Easter candy - and to celebrate the fun of the egg hunt. UnReal is offering limited edition Easter tins and a variety of bags filled with their all-natural candy coated milk chocolates and peanut butter cups, made with fair trade, non-GMO, organic ingredients, and less sugar. UnReal also revealed today, through a special video from the Easter Bunny, that the Bunny hid 50 Golden Eggs inside UnReal Easter tins, each with a special surprise, as part of an UnReal Easter Egg Hunt. It seems The Bunny was looking for something UnReal to do this Easter and was inspired by Tom Brady putting surprises in UnReal Halloween candy. UnReal is again showing us that "everything is possible" - and while what's inside will remain a surprise, each Golden Egg is filled with an UnReal possibility. The Golden Eggs can be found, starting today, inside UnReal Easter tins at Whole Foods Market Stores in MA, ME, RI, NH, and Greater Hartford, CT. Anyone can participate without making a purchase. Details are available at www.getunreal.com/pages/terms-conditions.
"Easter is one of my favorite holidays, filled with family time, egg hunts - and candy," said Nicky Bronner, UnReal's 19-year-old founder. "We've reinvented America's favorite candies, making them taste better and without any artificial ingredients, preservatives, GMO's, or excess sugar. We want families to have a better choice for their Easter egg hunts. As far as what's inside the Golden Eggs, you'll just have to wait and see, because it's the fun of the hunt that matters more than the treasure. I hope parents & kids have fun searching for the Golden Eggs and imagining the possibilities!"
