I’m not sure about you, but in our household Easter has become synonymous with the LINDT Easter Bunny and the jingle of the little bell around it’s neck as the kids (and adults) rip off that beautiful gold foil to get to the delicious milk chocolate inside.
The story behind the Lindt bunny is actually a cute one of someone just being an awesome dad. It was first created in 1952 by a LINDT Master Chocolatier after his son became mesmerised by a small bunny in their garden, which scampered off never to return. In order to cheer up the distraught boy, the Master Chocolatier fashioned the first ever LINDT GOLD BUNNY from the finest LINDT milk chocolate, fastening a golden bell to his neck with a red ribbon to ensure he never got lost. I think that we can all thank that little boy and his dad for helping to bring these bunnies into our lives.
LINDT is giving us all the opportunity to be amazing parents, just like their Master Chocolatier was all those years ago, by setting up an Easter egg hunt in their Lindt Gold Bunny Gardens where kids can fill up their baskets with delicious Lindt treats. The recommended age group is 4 – 10 yrs old,so I suggest you get on your kids good side, so that they share some of their spoils.What makes it even better though is that it’s free!
