LINDT Gold Bunny hunt this Easter at Gateway

What is it about that gold bunny with the red ribboned bell that makes me giddy this time of year!? I swear I’ve eaten dozens of those little fellas waaaaaay before Easter even rolls around – ears first of course – say WHAAT? :)

Yes, I’m talking about the LINDT Gold Bunny – The Sound of Happiness.
Yep that’s totally marketing speak but it’s true – I jingle that bell gleefully before scoffing him!

I didn’t know this, but the bunny was actually created by a LINDT Master Chocolatier in 1952, after his son became mesmerised by a small bunny in their garden, which scampered off never to return.  In order to cheer up his son, he fashioned the first ever LINDT Gold Bunny and fastened a bell around his neck with a red ribbon to ensure he never got lost.

Am sure you know the shops of full of Lindt bunnies, but they’ve also arranged some cool Easter events around SA, so here’s the low down:
