Despite the fact that they’re delivered by a large bunny in a bow tie, Easter baskets aren’t usually animal-friendly. Most of the season’s popular treats—Peeps, Cadbury Cream Eggs, chocolate bunnies—are chock full of dairy and eggs.
But thanks to Vegan Treats of Bethlehem, PA, even vegans can dig into a (cruelty-free!) candy cornucopia come Sunday, April 5. The bakery’s famous Ultimate Lucky Bunny vegan Easter basket is back, and it has brand new goodies for 2015.
“We have offered the Lucky Bunny basket in previous years, and by popular demand, we are offering it again,” says Lauren Koch, the Wholesale Accounts Manager with Vegan Treats.
“This year we have added a few new items including our very own betterfinger bars, a small box of two speculoos filled chocolate bunnies with white chocolate cotton tails, and a bag of passion fruit Madagascar vanilla filled Swiss chocolates.”
In addition to the new items, the vegan Easter basket (which isn’t actually a basket, just the contents) includes:
- 1 pack of twin caramel cookie bars
- 1 pack of twin peanut butter cookie bars
- 1 foil-wrapped chocolate egg filled with handmade coconut cream encased in our Swiss dark chocolate
- 1 foil-wrapped chocolate egg filled with peanut butter cream encased in our Swiss dark chocolate
- 1 white chocolate bunny pop
- 1 swiss chocolate bunny pop
- 1 carrot bag filled with eight handmade milk chocolate eggs
- 1 bag of five swiss chocolate and five white chocolate bunnies
- 1 bag of four veganbury eggs
The Ultimate Lucky Bunny basket runs $64.95. There’s also a gluten-free version for $68.95, and a regular Lucky Bunny basket with a somewhat smaller assortment that runs $44.95. You can order them online, or, if local to Bethlehem, stop by the store. Better order fast, though. Easter is approaching, and who wouldn’t want one of these Willy Wonka-esque candy dreams come true?
