Abstract

Many consumers may have experienced a chocolate Easter bunny that is hard to break and to bite into. The newest trend in the world of chocolate bunnies is the “breakable” bunny, a perforated chocolate that is designed to break more easily at key locations such as the tail, head, and ears. We compared two perforated chocolate bunnies: Hershey’s 2oz. “Snapsy Bunny” and Russell Stover’s 5oz. “Break-It-Rabbit” to see how easily they broke on their perforated lines, how hard they would be to bite into, and how stiff they were.
