You can now buy giant Lindt bunnies 10 times the size of normal ones

In the hierarchy of chocolates, Lindt bunnies are definitely somewhere near the top – if not in first place.

So when Easter comes around every year, a little chocolate bunny is always an important purchase.

But up until now, it’s been not-so socially acceptable to buy Lindt bunnies by the handful.

Pick up one for yourself, a couple for “brothers and sisters” and that’s fine. But anymore than that, and you might get a few judgemental looks.

Luckily, the chocolate fairies have heard our cries and created a new Lindt bunny, 10 times the size of its standard counterpart.

At £39.99 a go from Ocado – or £59.09 from Amazon – it’s certainly more of a blowout than a usual bunny. But with 10 times more chocolate, it’s a worthy investment.

The bunny comes in a presentation box complete with the iconic bell and red bow around the neck.

As the 100g bunny comes in at around 550 calories, its massive sibling has packs in around 5,500 – more than twice the recommended daily allowance for a woman.

But it’s Easter, which is possibly the only national holiday in the British calendar where it’s almost a crime not to gorge on chocolate.

“The Lindt 1kg Milk Chocolate Gold Bunny is the ultimate Easter gift that is sure to impress anyone who receives it!” the Lindt website says.

We’ll take all of them.
