Easter Rabbits — Chocolate is Better

Easter is coming. It's one of the larger holidays here in the US, and it's right around the corner. Easter is associated with rabbits and eggs... not a very vegan-friendly holiday, but one I grew up with. Here comes Peter Cottontail, Hopping Down the Bunny Trail... Hopefully, he'll be a vegan chocolate bunny, and not a casually acquired live rabbit. Make Mine Chocolate is a campaign created by the Columbus House Rabbit Society, designed to educate the public on the realities of living with a rabbit, and to discourage giving live rabbits as Easter gifts.

Rabbits make wonderful pets for the right household. The House Rabbit Society has a wonderful compilation of information about owning a rabbit. If you are considering getting a rabbit as a pet, please read through some of this literature first.

As for me... I'm off to find a vegan chocolate bunny. Wish me luck! Or maybe I can convince Jane to make the chocolate covered oreo truffles she made for Valentine's Day.

  1. What I hate hearing this time of year – tiny chicks dipped in food dye. Animal cruelty for human entertainment…
    Keep up the good work by spreading the word.
    Peace

  2. Ugh. I’d never heard of that. How horrible!
    Thanks Kara.

  3. Is that to make them more yellow and therefore cuter?

  4. Hi David…
    Actually, I haven’t the faintest idea… Kara???

    I can’t imagine buying a chick unless I had a farm and intended to raise chickens. And in that instance, yellow food dye wouldn’t matter.

  5. They dip these tiny live creatures in different colors of dyes – pink, blue, green…not yellow.
    What is wrong with our world?

  6. Hi Kara,
    And what does one do with a pink, blue, or green chick? (I’m not sure I want to know the answer to that question.)
