Bunny Boxes

Hollow Milk Chocolate
Solid Milk Chocolate
Return to Easter

The problem with saving Easter candy is that so much of it is based around the chocolate itself. Most Easter bunnies come in a box with a big window of cellophane to display the bunny, and the rest is window dressing.

This Frankford hollow milk chocolate bunny met its demise long, long ago. This box dates back to the late 70s/early 80s. My friend Jim gave it to me because it still had that campy, oversaturated charm of the Easter candy from the late 60s/early 70s.

I have noticed that Palmer has staged a revival of this old style in 2010, which is really cool, but this artifact here is the real deal. Use your imagination to fill in the blanks and just be glad that I saved this because almost all packaging of this kind is long gone.
