Chocolate Easter Bunnies

Have you ever wondered which of the many available chocolate Easter Bunnies out there is worth your money?

For some people, they have one classic favorite. Maybe because it is the bunny they always received in their Easter Basket, like the basic chocolate bunnies made by brands like Hershey or Palmer. Some are not so loyal to one bunny, and are seeking the best for their tastes and price range. I found a few sites offering reviews of a good sampling of bunnies, and want to share the results with you. Many of them were chosen in blind taste tests for flavor, while others were chosen for cost effectiveness.

1. Lindt Milk Chocolate Bunny

Price: $4.50 for 3.5 oz

This little guy won at for its wonderful smell, creamy texture and taste, and elegant packaging. It is a hollow bunny. There are some varying opinions about the flavor of Lindt chocolate, but that like anything else depends on your tastes. I have had this bunny and agree that it is my favorite of the more “well known” brands available at my local super market. I have purchased a couple of these little guys just to keep around for me to eat. The only down side to this guy maybe that it is not the cutesy bunny form you are seeking for your kids.

Can’t find it at your local market? Purchase it at Lindt’s website for $4.50.

2. Hershey’s Bliss Milk Chocolate Hollow Bunny

Price : $4.99 for 4 oz

At epicurious taste testers enjoyed the colorful and detailed foil packaging, and the dark chocolate like taste of the bunny itself. The downside is that some find that it has a chewy texture. And of course, if you do not like the taste of dark chocolate then this bunny is not for you. This bunny should be easy to find at your local super market.

3. Godiva Bertie the Milk Chocolate Bunny

Price: $25 for 9 oz

The testers at epicurious loved this rabbits packaging, saying it was cute and classic. The taste of the bunny is rich and creamy, with maybe a too sweet aftertaste. The downside to this treat is its cost. I am also not sure if you will be able to find this little guy locally if you do not have a Godiva store.

You can order this bunny at

4. Reester Bunny

If you love Reeses or know someone who does than this is the best cholcolate bunny choice! It is surprisingly good, and has all the flavor that you love in Reeses peanut butter filling.

These bunnies are also avialble in a smaller size:

For those who are not a fan of the cartoon bunny packaging, there is also another large chocolate bunny option, the Milk Chocolate Covered Peanut Butter Bunny.

All three of these options I have found at my local super market. I am afraid though that I do not have exact prices on these items, but they should be comparably priced to the Hershey’s bunny above.

5. See’s Candy Bunny –

Price: $9.10 for 10 ounces

This bunny was suggested by, as being a good amount of chocolate for the price, having a nice presentation, and as having a taste not overly sweet, nor fake. I have never had Sees candy, but I know quite a few people who love it and claim it as their favorite brand.

Can’t find it a local store or mall kiosk? Find it at Sees website here.

6. Fran’z Chocolate Bunny

Price: $8.00 for 4 oz

Another choice at sweets.seriouseats, this bunny has no frills in packaging complete in just its golden foil wrapper. This is single origin Venezuelan chocolate which has a wonderful cremey texture, that is not too sweet. This is probably another bunny better for the chocolate lover rather than for a child’s easter basket.

7. Hershey’s Snapsy Bunny

Nothing truly special here in taste or quality, but it is easy to find at the local supermarket and if you love the taste of Hershey’s chocolate this bunny is for you. It also features a unique design so that it is easy to break apart – for easy consumption or to share. This is especially nice for kids who cannot consume a whole bunny on their own. While I do not have the exact cost, it will be comparable with the above Hershey’s bunny.

8. Dove Milk Chocolate Bunny

This can be considered one of the “upper end” super market chocolate bunnies. The packaging is just like many of the other available bunnies, but this bunny has an advantage in taste. Dove has a rich chocolate flavor without any strange after tastes or textures. If you love Dove chocolate, or want to get a little bit more for your money in flavor this year, then this guy is for you. Comparably priced to the Hershey’s bunny above.

Palmer – honorable mention. The picture at the top of the article is of a larger offering of the company’s products. They have them in all shapes and sizes. I will eat their chocolate, but it is not my favorite and I have found some of their offerings to have bad after tastes. But if you are looking for a well priced bunny with lots of choices, Palmer is your brand.


I really wanted to do this myself this year! But lets face it – I cannot purchase and taste test all of that chocolate myself! Maybe in the future, but I hope that you enjoyed these reviews.

Anatomy of a Chocolate Bunny

Every Easter brings tons of different kinds of chocolate bunnies to choose from in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Some actually resemble rabbits, others do not. Some are cute and others well…they did not try too hard. All taste fairly good, and there is a chance that if you chose a good brand someone will eat the candy. But, I must say that not all chocolate bunnies are created equal! So, still in the spirit of Easter, lets take a look at the anatomy of some chocolate bunnies:

1. Palmer Big Ears Chocolate Bunny

Some rabbits do have large ears, but this is kind of ridiculous. Not cute…but definitely for the chocolate bunny connoisseur who loves to eat the ears and well, mostly just the ears.

2. Palmer Da Bunny Collection

I am sure that these bunnies are good for the people whose personalities they share….but I am just not attracted to these candies. I really do not like anthropomorphic animals (where animals take on human characteristics), sometimes it can be done in a cute manner but this is a bit much for me.

3. Dove Fairy Bunny

So the bunny is cute, but the addition of the wings is just crazy. However, if you like that kind of thing then this bunny is for you.

4. Reester Bunny

What this bunny lacks in cute he makes up for in taste! If you love Reeses candy then this guy will keep you happy for a long time.

5. Palmer My Little Bunny

These little guys actually look like bunnies and the packaging helps to that effect. They even come in pink and blue for boys and girls.

6. Russell Stover Solid Milk Chocolate Bunny

These guys are an Easter classic, at least where I live. I even got one of these in my Easter basket (it has different packaging). Classic pose, classic chocolate, and these guys are reasonably priced.

7. In the same position, Dove makes solid milk chocolate bunnies:

To be fair, Dove has created a more realistic bunny and has superior chocolate to Russell Stover, but these guys are more expensive.

8. Godiva Milk Chocolate Bunny

Cute, nice shiny wrapping, and it is made of Godiva chocolate… It could afford to lose the random flowers, but I am okay with that.

9. In the same line are the Lindt chocolate bunnies:

The eyes are not quite as cute, but the chocolate is amazing. I prefer Lindt to Godiva.

10. Frankford Easter Bunny – Hollow

This little guy is adorable! He might not be in a realistic position, but he sure is cute. He also gets good reviews on taste, check out slashfoods taste test of easter bunnies from 2009.

11. Vosges Chocolate Bunnies

This little guy is adorable! His ears are over-sized but in a good proportion to make him cute. I have no idea what company actually made the bunny in this photo, but the ones at are identical.

12. Zachary Solid Milk Chocolate Bunny

This guy is kind of scary looking, but I hear that he has good flavor from

13. Hershey’s Solid Milk Chocolate Speedy the Bunny

Again with the anthropomorphic bunnies? At least he is staying fit while you are getting a sugar high from consuming him…

14. Chocolate Bunny on a Motorcycle

This strange creation is available from Confections by Joel for $4.95. I do not think he is very cute, but someone else might.

15. Harbor Sweets Famous Chocolate Rabbits

While these guys have a strange look about them, the inside is apparently what counts. Each bunny comes in two halves, and “Each half contains an assortment of the soul of the Sweet Sloops (almond butter crunch), Sand Dollars (soft creamy caramel and pecan), and Barque Sarah (toasted almonds).”  However, the cost on these is quite steep starting at $15.95. Available at

16. Conrad’s Candy – Giant Bunny

This is one large bunny!  He is 26 inches tall and weighs 7 pounds, but will also cost you $144.95. With that hat and strange candied front, I would be afraid of this bunny! But if you know a chocolate lover, this is the perfect Easter gift. Currently the bunny is unavailable at

I know there are a ton more bunnies out there, but I think this list is long enough for the moment. Maybe I can come back to this idea next year.

Hope you guys enjoyed (or will enjoy) eating any of your chocolate Easter bunny treats!
