What Bunny Personality are you?

Posted on April 15, 2011 1:53 PM by Meghan

At Lake Champlain Chocolates we have lots of different chocolate bunnies to choose from so sometimes it can be hard to decide which one is right for you.  Here is quick personality guide to help make your decision easier. 

Only the Best

The Cruisin’ Easter Bunny:  This bunny is driving a race car.  Do we need to say more?  Fast and furious, when it comes to Easter, this bunny means business.  Ahead of the pack with his cool car and decorative egg, this bunny has a competitive edge, is goal oriented and enjoys being in control.  The Cruisin’ Bunny loves a challenge but can be intense and is very persuasive about getting his own way. Watch out!

Center of Attention

Mr. Goodtime Bunny- Another aptly named chocolate bunny, this guy loves to be the life of the party.  A true extrovert, Mr. Goodtime lives in the moment but is also always in search for new and exciting experiences.   Bring him home to your house and he won’t disappoint with his hand-painted dapper jacket, egg and flowers.  Full of energy, he loves meeting different people and starting conversations.   Mr. Goodtime will get your Easter party started!

Altruistic & Agreeable

Organic Hopp’n Bunny- The organic bunny is new to the LCC Easter bunny family this year.  A compassionate little guy, this bunny enjoys helping others and highly values the quality of his relationships.  Considerate, friendly, helpful and generous, the Hopp’n bunny has a soft heart that makes people feel at ease.  Somewhat of an idealist, this bunny is created from certified organic chocolate making him right at home in a child’s Easter basket.

The Traditionalist

Classic Easter Bunny-  Old school to the core, this bunny has been around the block more than a few times, yet still holds strong year after year.  Every Easter he is prepared, organized and ready to act when needed. Not one to like surprises, he wants to know the details and specifics and is exacting in his work.  This must be why he continues to be our best selling bunny.  Looking proud and handsome in an Easter basket, the Classic is the gold standard to which all bunnies strive to achieve.

So tell us, which bunny personality are you?

Easter Bunny Update!

Posted on March 30, 2010 1:36 PM by Peter Cottontail

Hey everyone- I’m back for another entry!   Phew, it was a busy weekend but the Egg-Stravaganza chocolate Easter egg hunt went off without a hitch and the Lake Champlain Chocolates Factory store was hopping (sorry, I can’t resist) with people buying chocolate bunny rabbits, frogscarrots and all sorts of delicious treats to fill their gourmet chocolate Easter baskets. So now we’re into the home stretch. Yes, Easter is THIS Sunday.  Don’t be caught at the drugstore buying up the last lonely piece of Easter candy on the shelf Saturday night.  You can still order Easter chocolates by this Thursday, April 1st (no joking!) and have it arrive on Friday, April 2nd.

Oh, before I forget I want to mention- if you’re in Vermont and near one of Lake Champlain Chocolates’ stores (Pine St or Church St in Burlington or Rte 100 in Waterbury), be sure to buy a raffle ticket to win the Ha ha Bunny.  This is no ordinary bunny and being a bunny myself, I know.  With 23 pounds of semi-sold milk chocolate and 2 feet tall, this bunny is impressive!  And how about those teeth?!  I’m a little jealous of the teeth. The best part is that all the proceeds go to the Burlington, VT Ronald McDonald House.

I think that’s all from this busy bunny for now.  I’ve got lots of Easter baskets to fill between now and Sunday!  I've been eating those Granola Breakfast Eggs like crazy to keep my energy up! And after that, you’ll find me relaxing on a beach somewhere enjoying something perhaps a bit stronger than chocolate.....

Where is the Easter Bunny?

Posted on March 25, 2010 1:06 PM by Peter Cottontail



Hi there- it’s me, Peter Cottontail.  The folks at Lake Champlain Chocolates were nice enough to let me be a guest blogger on their blog this week!  Yes, even bunnies blog. I thought this might be a good way to get the word out about where I’m going to be over the next week or so.  As you can imagine, with Easter just around the corner, I am one busy rabbit!!

So let’s see…. the Chocolate Factory Store on Pine Street in Burlington has me booked through the weekend and into next week. And you know, I have my pick of places to work so I wouldn’t work for just any chocolate company, only the best for this bunny.  So stop by and I can help you pick out the best Easter Basket, chocolate bunny or chocolate eggs gift.  There are so many delicious Easter chocolates to choose from- they even have milk chocolate carrots, my personal favorite. I am a rabbit, what do you expect?

This Saturday at 11am I’ll be at Oakledge Park helping out with the 8th Annual Egg-Stravaganza.  Personally, this is a great event for me to get primed for the real show the following week.  With 2-12 year olds searching for more than 10,000 Easter eggs, those kids keep me hopping -literally!   I’ll be available for pictures too.  (Note to self: get coat washed and brushed on Friday. No one likes a dirty bunny).

I do have other obligations but I can’t reveal all of them at once… stay tuned and I’ll post another entry next week with some more updates.  Anyone have any guesses?  You never know where the Easter Bunny will turn up.

For now- Hop on.

The Easter 500

Posted on March 23, 2010 11:47 AM by Meghan


We all know chocolate can be molded into all sorts of different shapes and sizes- just take Easter for example.  Here at Lake Champlain Chocolates our Easter bunnies alone run the gamut from placesetting milk chocolate bunnies to the over a foot tall Mr. Goodtime  Giant Chocolate Bunny to the Cruisin’ Easter Bunny Rabbit.  And then there are the chocolate carrots, chocolate Easter eggs and even gourmet chocolate fish!

And while they are all beautiful chocolate creations, Emily Jones, our resident chocolate sculptor, continues to set the bar higher each year.  It is really quite amazing what she can do with chocolate.  Not only are her sculptures incredible works of art, but they’re always clever and adorable!

This year’s sculpture is titled The Easter 500 (a la the Daytona 500).  A race track complete with bunnies and chicks driving carrot and egg cars.  You really can’t get much cuter than that.

Check out Emily in action as she works in our factory.

Ultimately, around Easter time we are all looking for the same thing…the perfect chocolate bunny. Here at Lake Champlain Chocolates, we work hard to make this existential search easier. With over 25 years of experience, we have crafted some of the finest chocolate bunnies available. We have Classic Milk Chocolate Rabbits and Dark Chocolate Bunnies, a traditional favorite; we have smaller Placesetting Easter Bunnies, perfect for that Easter Sunday meal; we have Cruisin’ Bunny Rabbits, speeding away in their chocolate sports cars; beautiful White Chocolate Bunnies; and last but not least the Mr. Goodtime oversized Chocolate Bunny, weighing 3 lbs and standing an impressive 16.5” tall! So what I’m saying here is consider your search over. Lake Champlain Chocolates has all the wonderful Easter Chocolates you’ve been looking for!

Now, if it’s a truly enormous bunny you’re craving (even bigger than the Mr. Goodtime), then we may still be able to help you out.  Each year Lake Champlain Chocolates raffles off a bunny of epic proportions. The Ha Ha Bunny is its official name and we have three of them. He is 23 pounds of Semi Solid Milk Chocolate (34% cocoa) and stands 2 feet tall! Stop by one of our 3 retail stores on Pine St, Church St or at the Cabot Annex in Waterbury to pick up a $1.00 raffle ticket for your chance to win one these unique bunnies. The best part is that all proceeds go to the Burlington Ronald McDonald House. So not only do you get a chance to win the Ha Ha Bunny, but you also get to help a worthy cause.

Three tickets will be selected on Good Friday, April 10th at 4pm.

Good luck and Happy Easter!

The Cutest Chocolate Bunny Video - Ever!

Posted on June 26, 2008 7:55 AM by Leann
People do some pretty neat things with chocolate, be it cooking, sculpting, photographing, etc. And once in a while, I find things that are just too irresistible to not share. This video of chocolate bunnies is one of those things.

Now, in the second part of this video (Act II), I debated if I should post it because someone might not like it but I decided that all together, it was just so darn cute. I hope you enjoy these adorable chocolate bunnies and to whoever was clever enough to create it, thank you. It made me smile. So sweet - no pun intended!

Less than three weeks until Easter and then I’m back on vacation - skiing, snowboarding and living it up. It sneaks right up on me some years. And this year, since Easter is March 23, it really surprised me. It looks like I’ll be delivering even more chocolate bunnies this year than last year and the Easter baskets are piling up. If I had to pick one item that’s becoming my favorite, I’d have to go with the milk chocolate carrot. Check it out, it's wicked cute. Hey, I’m a rabbit. I like carrots.

It always gets so busy for me this time of year but I'm not complaining. Besides delivering easter baskets and hiding colored eggs for the easter egg hunts, I also have a lot of appearances to make. In fact, I’ll be in the Lake Champlain Chocolates Factory Store Saturdays in March. I love that part because I get to be the star and all the kids love me. Hey, if you’re around, stop in and say hello to an old rabbit.

Hearts begone! Bunnies beware!

It’s done. Valentines Day has made its swift appearance and even swifter departure and all that’s left is the chocolate wrapper carnage. But no time for tears. It’s on to that delicious chocolate easter bunny. Those sweet little hoppy things with the oh-so-tempting ears just waiting for a nibble. I can’t wait to get my hands on one. As soon as they have swept the factory store of the pink and red ribbons and bows, I’m certain they’ll make their appearance.

Along with their arrival will be the far-too-delicious filled chocolate easter eggs. Yes, another weakness I’m willing to admit. Come by my office during spring and you’re sure to find a few wadded up colored foil wrappers here and there. Sure, Easter isn’t just about chocolate easter bunnies, chocolate easter baskets and easter eggs but it’s part of what makes up my childhood memories and I can always rely on them to transport me back to those days. And it also means we’re just that much closer to Spring and all it’s joys!
