History of the Chocolate Bunny

Have you ever wondered why we eat chocolate bunnies at Easter time? Since there are more than 60 million chocolate bunnies sold in America every year, we thought it was worth investigating why we even have chocolate bunnies to begin with. It is said the celebration of spring originated with a celebration of Eostre (Easter), the ancient goddess of fertility.  And what animal is known for being extremely fertile? Bunnies! .
