Ain’t Nobunny like the Cadbury Bunny

The grass outside is turning green and growing, tulips are blooming, which means... 'tis the season to devour some Cadbury eggs. If you've turned on the TV recently, chances are you've seen the classic Cadbury bunny spot. Cadbury Creme Eggs may be one of Britain's most famous imports. In 1824, John Cadbury opened up shop in Birmingham, UK where he sold tea, coffee, cocoa, and drinking chocolate. In 1923, the company released its cream-filled eggs, but the Cadbury Creme Eggs that we know and love weren't released until 1971. The chocolate, creme, and fondant-filled eggs quickly became an Easter must-have (possibly nestled next to some marshmallow Peeps). Its popularity was helped along by the classic clucking bunny TV campaign, which originally debuted in 1982.
