We totally live for candy-coated holidays, and Easter is no exception. Forget the Peeps and instead peep these confectionery suggestions for all budgets:

Under $75

For the special people who have Easter birthdays or just really deserve something exquisite right about now, Charles Chocolates' Bunny Collection ($60) offers nine whimsically decorated chocolate covered fleur de sel caramels and nine chocolate covered caramels in a completely edible box made of white and bittersweet chocolate.

Recchiuti's Force Noir Eggs ($23) are strikingly beautiful, and -- unlike so many Easter orbs -- don't skimp on the rich filling inside. They're split in half, which helps cut down on the craving to devour the whole box in one sitting. (It doesn't necessarily encourage sharing, though, and may even inspire a little greed.)

Like most of its confections, See's Candies' Bunny Box ($6) is a pretty great quality value. This assortment features milk chocolate bunnies, dark and milk chocolate eggs, and the company's awesomely creamy lollipops.

Easter candy has totally stepped up its game since you were a kid. We raided our local Walgreens yesterday and found so many super-cute items under $2 that we're sure we drew stares from other customers as we stood there and narrowed the field down. Our favorites: About two Halloween mini-packs' worth of M&Ms housed in a choice of pastel-colored tins ($1.67) and this orange egg, which used to contain two peanut butter filled Reese's bunnies (99 cents).

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
