What's the right way to eat a chocolate bunny?
Chocolate Easter bunnies come in a number of forms; some resemble a lifelike bunny sitting in profile, while others feature a cartoon rabbit staring at you with yellow, expectant eyes. Some bunnies are hollow, while others are solid, but no matter what your bunny of choice looks like, its ears stick out as a welcome sign, saying "eat me" to fans of Easter candy everywhere.
It's only logical to start with the ears. You're holding a giant piece of chocolate, and it makes sense to begin with the appendage closest to you.
Starting with the ears allows you to savor your bunny. Bite by bite, you will enjoy its rich, smooth texture from ear to tail.
But not everyone agrees. Some Easter bunny-eaters prefer to crack the entire head off of the bunny to start, thus consuming the hunk of chocolate in dismantled bits.
Think about it, when you hold an entire Hershey's chocolate bar or a Kit-Kat in your hand, do you just bite into it haphazardly? Absolutely not. Doing so would be barbaric. You break off orderly pieces in order to ease what would otherwise be a chaotic consumption process.
Put your bunny out of its misery; guillotine it first.
The ears-first approach has science on its side. According to the team at the Today Show:
A recent study published in The Laryngoscope journal found that the vast majority of bunny consumers (59 percent) start with the ears.
The study utilized online research to determine the bunny-eating habits of over 28,000 people, and the ears-first method proved to be the norm.
Beginning with the ears is the classic top-down approach. This camp does not cause chaos; they reject inhumane treatment of chocolate bunnies everywhere.
Let's stop to consider what the chocolate bunny itself would want. Don't make your beloved, chocolate-version of Peter Rabbit suffer slowly. A chocolate bunny is a sculptural masterpiece and deserves to be dismantled in order.
