Chocolate sales to aid bunny rescue group

Wichita’s Bunny TNT club has joined with two local candy makers to remind people that live bunnies do not make good Easter presents for children and to raise money for the rabbit rescue group.

Through March 30, Cero’s Candies, 1108 E. Douglas, will sell chocolate bunnies for $3, and Cocoa Dolce Artisan Chocolates, 2132 N. Rock Road, Suite 100, will offer special bunny candy for $2.50 and a two-piece box including bunny candy for $5. Proceeds go to help with Bunny TNT’s rabbit rescue and educational efforts.

Bunny TNT and the national “Make Mine Chocolate” campaign want people to know that rabbits are not low-maintenance animals but are highly social creatures that require regular interaction with their human families. Because rabbits can live more than 10 years, they say, being a rabbit owner is a serious commitment. If you’re looking for a bunny as an Easter gift for a child, they urge you to make it a stuffed or chocolate bunny.

For more information, call Joyce or John Gedraitis with Bunny TNT at 316-683-1122 or visit www.makeminechocolate.org.
