A Chocolate Bunny Nobody Had to Die For

Written by PETA | April 15, 2011

For all of us who get googly-eyed just thinking about a basket full of chocolate that’s all ours, Easter is a great time of year. And when we fill our baskets with delicious vegan chocolates, we get all that melt-in-our-mouths goodness without any animal having to die for it. (Chocolate bunnies, of course, are fair game.)

Why should you leave the milk out of your chocolate bunny? Cows used in the dairy industry are often forced to produce 10 times more milk than they would naturally. Their babies are generally taken away from them shortly after birth, and the males are raised for veal. Worn out cows are sent to slaughter.

With the bounty of yummy vegan chocolates available from companies like Rose City Chocolatier, Allison’s Gourmet Vegan Bakery, and Chocolate Inspirations, there’s no need to steal milk from a calf. Harbor Candy Shop has created a delicious assortment just for PETA, available in a pre-assembled Easter basket.  

So we can go ahead and get our hands messy devouring all our treats (mine don’t last very long), and still have our consciences clear. Happy Eater, I mean Easter!

    Theologically, not theocratically. Mistake.

    Rachel, Thank you for your kind words and encourgment and I hope you will be pleased to know that it is my intention to write this book. The basis of which has already been made available on these pages. As fate would have it, I have been religiously persued by a former preacher, with a masters in divinity, from a well known and reputable school. A lovely man, to be sure. But what he does not know about the destruction of our home, planet earth, that we live on, and the food that we eat, is mesmerizing. Truly. The enormity of which, alternately makes me sobbingly sad and confounded, and frightfully angry. We have spent many hours in conversation. He has gifted me with books on theology and commentary on the Bible. I know that this is a sign and a blessing and am elated at this sparkle of hope for the church; theocratically and spiritually known as The Body of Christ.

    Eating is meant to be joyful, not barbaric. If people knew the joy we experience when we sit down to a delicious vegan dinner or lunch, knowing no one died for it, or worse lived in misery and fear, and then died for it, we would bring more people to our table. When I go out to eat at a vegan restaurant, it’s a celebration. A celebration of celebrations. We all must eat, so it must be a pretty big part of our makeup, of our celestial bodies. You can go without alot. You can abuse your body with alcohol and drugs, you can survive great emotional meltdowns and trauma, your body can go through disease and live, all sorts of trials and tribulations the human body can withstand, but you will not live if you do not eat. Not for long anyway. An absolute truth. So this that we pass through our mouths and into our stomachs, through our intestines and down to the sewer is of primary importance to our lives. And life as we know it, at this time, is contained in our bodies. Life doesn’t have to be miserable. You don’t have to eat misery or wear misery to enjoy your life or feed your belly. If people only knew the food we enjoy every single day, we would bring more people to our table. It is the irony of ironies and beyond.
