Candy Corn for Easter?

Spotted at Big Lots!
Every year in October, the stores are filled with bags of candy corn. It's become the iconic candy of Halloween.  And every November, the stores are filled with marked-down bags of candy corn as retailers struggle to dump the huge numbers of bags which go unsold every year.  As late as February, I was finding tables filled with bags of leftover candy corn selling for as little as 25 cents each.

So the last thing I'd expect to see in March is more candy corn.  At least they're marketing it in carrot-shaped plastic bags to make it somewhat seasonable.
