The Easter Bunny has gone Mad

The Easter Bunny has gone mad.  Not one, but two brands of luxury chocolates are sitting keyboardside here this morning.  The handmade Rococo and the luscious Artisan du Chocolat arrived sometime during the night.  And why on earth has the Easter bunny gone to such extravagant measures in times of austerity?  Surely Cadbury would suffice?  

No.  Missmarketcrash has calculated that the amount of Cadbury required to satisfy a serious chocoholic is at least eight times more than eating one posh chocolate.  And, this morning, in the great taste-off of posh chocolates, Missmarketcrash has determined that five Rococo's are required for every Artisan eaten.  So, in the name of waistline and budget, I recommend you stick with Artisan, specifically the salted caramel balls.  Salty Balls, raised eyebrow, small smirk.

The Easter Artisan du Chocolat is a mad day-glo red bunny that appears felted.  The "felt" look is clearly dyed cocoa.  A bit over the top for a refined company, but, just the medicine for these ridiculous times.  Said red-felted bunny might be over-stylish, and, a no-no, but, it is on just the right side of kitsch, teetering on a mad precipice of good taste and devil-may-care.  The accompanying eggs are in trendy-of-the-now hues of orange, green and a marvelous blue.  With white and dark and light brown to set them straight.  The austere white has a mad green cream inside which is both frightening and delightful. 

Thank you Easter Bunny.

I should have read this before choosing the colours for this week's word cloud. Still, I'm not too far off.
