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?

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.


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.
