Forget Christmas — It's Already Easter At Kroger

Christmas is about a week away, with New Year’s following hot on its heels. And then there’s Valentine’s Day about seven weeks after that. But forget about all that junk because spring is apparently in the air at Kroger.

Easter might not be until April, but Consumerist reader Matt stumbled upon this stand for Reese’s peanut butter eggs and Cadbury Creme Eggs at a Kroger in Bloomington, IN, the other day.

While we’re all for having early access to Easter candy, can’t stores wait until we’ve all gorged on candy canes before wheeling this stuff out?

When do you think it’s appropriate for grocery stores to start pushing Easter candy?
