I got the best present ever from C on her return from her girls weekend away at strandfontein (along the west coast) this weekend. She gave me a gold foil wrapped Lindt Choccie Bunny!!
Fine you might say, Easter was like ages ago, but I don’t care, I’ve never had one of them before! And it was everything I expected it to be: rich creamy thick milk chocolate that melts away in your mouth.
Absolute heaven :)
But did you know Lindt even has one of those corporate stories they make up for products in circulation for Mr Bunny Rabbit? If not, this is stripped off their official British site:
Tale of the Gold Bunny
One bright March spring morning when the ground was covered in a blanket of snow, one of the Lindt Master Chocolatiers saw a little bunny in his garden. The chocolatier`s young son was throughly mesmerised when he saw the little bunny but began to cry as soon as it disappeared into the bushes. Deeply disturbed by how upset his son was, the father suddenly had a great idea.
“I should make him a bunny like that out of chocolate”….and with that the `Lindt Snow Bunny` as he was known, was born.
The bunny was made from the finest Lindt milk chocolate and was lovingly wrapped in gold foil and hand finished as he still is today. And as a special mark of recognition he was given the unique red ribbon and gold bell.
Over the course of time, the Lindt Gold Bunny has become a symbol of Easter. For people of all ages when they see him they know Easter is not far away.
There. Now doesn’t that make you feel all warm and fuzzy on the inside?
