If you’ve been keeping up with our blogs, you’ve made it through all the major holidays Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day. You still have one more, Easter! While you still want to enjoy the fun traditions, you also want to protect your investment and stick to braces-friendly Easter candy!

Don’t worry, there are several braces-friendly Easter candy! We’ve listed them for you below.

The Good


While some chocolates are off-limits, as long as it doesn’t contain hard nuts or sticky caramel, you’re good to go! Some good options are M&Ms, Hershey’s chocolate bars, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, or York Peppermint Patties!

Baked Goodies

Everyone enjoys some fresh-baked cupcakes, cookies, and brownies! These can be a great addition to any Easter celebration. They are easy to make and delicious to enjoy.


We know, it sounds boring for Easter, but hear us out! Bananas, oranges, raspberries, or blueberries make for a great snack. While it’s not the normal Easter treat, fresh fruit is always a go-to!

Other Goodies

Sometimes the best things aren’t the ones you eat! If you’re looking for a different way to spice up an Easter basket think about gift cards, movie tickets, or video games!

The Bad

While they are many yummy treats to enjoy, there are still some you should stray away from to protect your braces.

Jelly Beans

While they look innocent, they can actually do a lot of harm. They can stick to your brackets, breaking them.

Mini Eggs

While they are special to Easter, hard-shelled candy is not braces friendly! These candies can break your brackets and bend the wires.

Marshmallow Peeps

We know this is a love em’ or hate em’ Easter staple, however, if you love them you’ll have to resist this year. While they are cute, they can cause a lot of damage to your brackets.

Despite your best efforts, some candy that isn’t braces approved might be consumed this year, and that’s okay! Just remember to stay vigilant in brushing and flossing to keep teeth clean and healthy.
