Every year, I put a chocolate bunny in my child's Easter Basket. I usually pick up a cute bunny without giving any attention to the label. After all, most bunnies tend to taste almost the same. White, dark, or milk chocolate, hollow or solid, sometimes crispy. This year, I was on the hunt for the perfect bunnies! Vosges Bunnies! I was given an opportunity to taste each of the four varieties. My least favorite was the Amalfi Easter Bunny. It may have something to do with the fact that I am not really fond of white chocolate, so white chocolate lovers may feel differently. This gourmet bunny is cute! Smooth white chocolate is loaded with pink peppercorns and lemon zest. After biting into it, the white chocolate gave way to the slight crunch of pink peppercorns. The peppercorns were very mild, and the peppery white chocolate was an interesting combination. It was a little too adventurous for me, so I decided to open up a Red Fire Easter Bunny. You can really taste the Mexican ancho & chipotle chillies and Ceylon cinnamon. This exotic dark chocolate bunny brings some heat to your palate, and it is the perfect combination for those that like a little warm spice with their chocolate! The Gianduja Bunny surprises you with little bits of almonds and caramelized hazelnuts. This Italian inspired bunny boasts creamy, melt-in-your-mouth decadence. If you enjoy smooth milk chocolate, this bunny's for you! Simple, yet elegant. A true classic bunny that you (or your little ones) will love! My favorite, the Barcelona Bunny, is both sweet and salty. It features the tantalizing flavors of hickory smoked almonds and grey sea salt in rich milk chocolate with a hint of dark for perfection. The grey sea salt adds just the right amount of saltiness to fulfill your needs without being overpowering. It is perfectly blended, but unfortunately short lived! This bunny never had a chance! Each bunny features flop-ears and a petite pouf tail. Your bunny will arrive beautifully boxed, complete with a story of its origin! Visit Vosges Haut-Chocolat and treat yourself to their other decadent creations! Truffles, chocolate bars, bonbons, and more.
