Did you know... The Easter Bunny legends were first written down in Germany in the 1500s? The first story described a bunny laying eggs and hiding them in a garden. But it was not only until the 1800s that Easter bunnies were edible. They were made of pastry sugar but the chocolate ones quickly became much more popular.
LINDT, the GOLD BUNNY first opened his eyes to the world of chocolate in 1952. The story goes that one bright spring morning in March, when the ground was still covered with a blanket of crisp white snow, one of the LINDT Maîtres Chocolatiers saw a little bunny in his garden. The Maître Chocolatier’s young son was completely mesmerised when he saw the little bunny but began to cry as soon as it disappeared in the bushes.
Deeply touched by how upset his son was, the father suddenly had a great idea: "I should make a bunny like that one out of chocolate..." He made the bunny from the finest LINDT milk chocolate, wrapped it in a golden foil and put a red ribbon with a golden bell around its neck, so it would not get lost.” Today boys and girls of all ages, prepare their Easter Bunny basket with the different Gold Bunny sizes and flavors for themselves and loved ones.
