Chocolate Bunny Hunting


When we were newlyweds, we were walking around Target one night and Chris started tip toeing into the candy aisle and whispered in his best Australian accent, “If we’re very quiet, we may spot the rare chocolate bunny in its natural habitat.” Thus began our family tradition of chocolate bunny hunting.

You might think that hunting chocolate bunnies around Easter is (as my Criminal Law professor put it) like searching for a needle in a needle drawer, but you can easily find yourself in the proverbial haystack. Given the variety of bunnies in the order Chocolat√¶ Bunnis if you’re hunting a specific genus or species, your game may be illusive in the wild. Our favorite bunny is of the Lindt genus, the milk chocolate species.

This year when the chocolate bunny season opened, I surveyed the landscape and had to text this picture to Chris. It felt too good to be true. Among the Lindt herd, there were dozens of white bunnies, plenty of dark bunnies, and then off in a distant shelf, one solitary milk bunny, trying to blend in with its surroundings. His efforts were unsuccessful.

  1. If I learned anything from law school, it's to keep your needle drawer close and your toothpaste jar closer.
