When I was a kid growing up, I looked forward to Easter! Actually a little more than I did Christmas, if we’re going to be truthful. It wasn’t because of the candy because candy was and still is, just okay to me. Not something I flip over usually. It was because I had to search for my Easter basket. My mom would turn it into a treasure hunt. There would be little notes all over the house filled with clues and I would wander around searching for my basket.
There was always a bunny in my basket. Now I got two bunnies, a chocolate one and a peanut butter one. Oh yes, a peanut butter bunny. For someone who loves peanut butter, those bunnies were tops. And I loved them more than the chocolate bunnies. Ever since I’ve been out on my own, I have looked for peanut butter bunnies and have come up empty.
Almost as if this was some sort of imaginary memory of mine, I can’t find peanut butter bunnies. Scott has no memory of peanut butter bunnies and says he’s never had one when growing up. For years I have been on the search for the elusive peanut butter bunny. One year, I was successful. I found peanut butter bunnies at Big Lots (Odd Lots to some) and I jumped for joy and bought boxes of them. This was five years ago. I haven’t seen any since then. And I always look. Whatever store I’m in that sells Easter candy, I search it thoroughly.
I see chocolate bunnies and I see milk bunnies but no peanut butter bunnies. And let’s still keep it honest here, who actually buys milk flavored things? Really? Milk? Who says, “Hey you know what I want? Oh man a piece of candy flavored just like milk! Doesn’t that sound like a great way to treat myself? Milk flavored candy, yeah!”
So I’m putting forth this challenge to you, if you see a peanut butter bunny out somewhere, take a picture of it and send it to me. Let me know where you are (city, state) and what store you found it in. I want to see if peanut butter bunnies still do exist. And I’m going to continue my hunt for the elusive peanut butter bunny!
