Chocolate Bunny Debate: Ears Or Butt First?

What to eat first, the butt or the ears?

What to eat first, the butt or the ears?

RALEIGH, N.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – On Easter (Apr. 4), getting an earful is better than getting tail.

At least when it comes to nibbling chocolate Easter bunnies.

According to Brian Pipa, professional candy tester and founder of, the prime way to eat a chocolate bunny is ears first.

He figures the ears usually get broken off accidentally anyway, so might as well start at the top and work your way down.

The ears are a good focal point, especially for those chocolate bunnies that are so big, you don’t know where to bite.

Aside from seasonal staples like Peeps, Cadbury Creme Eggs, and bunnies, Pipa says jelly beans are a must-have in an Easter basket.

Nearly every candy company is making their own variation of them right now, so there’s lots to choose from.

Also, Chewy Nerds are a great combo of flavor and texture, while Reese’s Eggs have the perfect “chocolate-to- peanut-butter ratio.”
