DARIEN, Conn. -- UnReal is a candy company on a mission to de-junk Easter.

The company, founded by two teenage brothers, is offering two limited edition Easter tins at select Whole Foods Markets, including the Westport, Danbury, Greenwich and Darien locations.

A a time when 81 percent of all parents steal from their kids’ Easter baskets and more than 1.5 billion marshmallow peeps are consumed during the holiday -- so says a report by WalletHub -- UnReal is all about using Fair Trade, non-GMO, and sustainably sourced ingredients —and 30-40 percent less sugar.

The two Easter tins are filled with two options: candy coated milk chocolates and a mix of dark and milk chocolate creamy peanut butter cups.

According to UnReal’s 19-year-old Founder Nicky Bronner, "Easter is one of my favorite holidays, filled with family time, egg hunts ... and candy. We want families to have a better choice for their Easter egg hunts.”

Added Amanda Reiss, UnReal’s chief marketing officer, "UnReal has been in the Westchester County and Fairfield County Whole Foods Markets for a little over a year. We are so excited to celebrate the fun of Easter with our first-ever, limited edition UnReal Easter tins. We can't wait to give local families a better option for their egg hunts this year."
