How to Make Easter Extra Sweet This Year Near Crane Chinatown


Like all of the holidays in the last year, Easter 2021 is set to be a different sort of event—you may be comfortable gathering in small groups or you may just want to stick around your Crane Chinatown apartment this year. No matter how you’re marking the occasion, there’s one element any Easter celebration needs: chocolate! Those who celebrate likely remember the excitement of Easter mornings filled with tons of sugar—so even if your holiday looks a little different this year, you can always revisit the fun of your youth with some sweet treats.

There are plenty of options to do that right near your Crane Chinatown apartment, including at the Mueller Chocolate Co., located in nearby Reading Terminal Market. The chocolatier has been a Philadelphia mainstay for more than 40 years and its treats have been heralded by outlets ranging from the Food Network, Zagat, the Travel Channel and even Ripley’s Believe It or Not. So if you’re looking for a candy seller with lots of history and story behind it, this is a great option!

In the chocolate department, the collections include everything from hand-dipped chocolate covered pretzels to barks to chocolate-covered fruits and nut clusters. Mueller has dozens of varieties of truffles, which you can grab in gift boxes perfect for if you’re going to an Easter gathering. Other seasonal Easter favorites include a 1/4-pound chocolate-covered coconut egg, mini chocolate peanut butter eggs and gift bags featuring varieties of Easter-themed candies. They even have a truffle line of Philadelphia-themed truffles, emblazoned with the Liberty Bell and other symbols. Many of Mueller’s products give a hat tip to the City of Brotherly Love, such as chocolate squares with the Reading Terminal Market logo Eagles-themed nonpareils and Liberty Bell lollipops.

The pandemic has reshaped holidays lately but one constant remains: Chocolate makes every holiday, no matter how you spend it, a lot sweeter!
