This year Easter Sunday is April 17th, which means it's time to find your favorite pastel colored shirt, gather your baskets for the kids and start decorating those eggs! They won't paint themselves!

If you want to make the Easter celebration 'eggstra' special, you should buy the candy, chocolate and treats from a famous celebrity. I just happen to know that actor Paul Rudd has a candy store in the Hudson Valley with some of the finest sweets you will ever eat. Let's go!

Samuel's Sweet Shop at 42 East Market Street in Rhinebeck, NY is not only owned by People Magazine's 'Sexiest Man Alive 2021', Paul Rudd, he is also partners with Jeffrey Dean Morgan, yes, Negan from The Walking Dead!

In 1994, a man named Ira Gutner opened Samuel's of Rhinebeck and operated the candy shop for 20 years before suddenly passing away in 2014. Gutner was a beloved member of the community and his passing touched many people, including the Morgan and Rudd.

With Samuel's of Rhinebeck in danger of having to close, these celebrities joined forces with others to purchase the store and keep Ira's dream alive. Today the store is known as Samuel's Sweet Shop and you never know who you will run into there.
