Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) went on a Easter Sunday Twitter binge about his love for candy.

Gingrich tweeted about how he developed his sweet tooth at an early age, crowing up near Hershey, Pa., home of the eponymous chocolate company:

Callista got me an easter bunny (chocolate) an easter basket with goodies I ate a reeses peanut butter cup for my breakfast 

I grew up in hummelstown just three miles from hershey so my mother would always get me a giant chocolate bunny for easter

As I grew older the bunnies seemed to grow smaller by comparisonThen I learned big bunnies were too many calories so now I get small bunnies

I like reeses peanut butter cups because reeses is also from hersheyHowever callista got. Me a reeses peanut butter eggeIt is good too
