Easter 2022 is next Sunday April 17. I'm 52 years old, and I want an Easter basket this year. But, being as old as I am, I can't eat all of the sugary treats that traditionally go into one. Adults deserve a treat for showing Lenten season restraint too, right?

Damn straight we do. I started thinking, what local Connecticut items would make me gasp with delight if someone brought me an adult Easter basket? Chocolate bunny? Nah. 5 day old purple and pink hard-boiled eggs? Gross.

If I was a good Catholic boy who abstained from eating meat on Fridays, what would I want to stuff down my throat on Easter Sunday morning? I've picked 8 local Connecticut businesses that I believe sell superior products, so here's what I would want in my adult Easter basket.
