Last year we mentioned the Whittakers chocolate Kiwi ‘Easter egg’ and it is being sold again this year. A small portion of the sales from it go to help save the real thing.

For those not into native birds, however, there is this Star Wars character chocolate ‘egg’, made in Britain.

The appropriateness of bunnies as an Easter theme in NZ is questionable considering the amount of damage that wild rabbits do to the environment including good quality pasture.  In Queensland, keeping rabbits as pets is banned.

We also say no further purchases of Cadbury’s chocolate and confectionery in the light of their closure of the Dunedin factory, ending their long presence in NZ manufacturing. NZ Herald article

Buy Whittakers instead.
