Fresh All Natural Chocolates from Vermont

Lake Champlain Chocolates Hops into Easter with Organic Bunnies

February 1, 2011 :: Lake Champlain Chocolates (LCC) is gearing up to help the Easter Bunny prepare for his big day. This year the Vermont chocolate company is the first national brand to introduce a certified organic chocolate Easter bunny, the Organic Chocolate Hopp’n Bunny.

Available in milk or dark chocolate, these handmade chocolate bunnies are crafted with organic and preservative-free chocolate and are the perfect size for children’s hands. Carefully filled with freshly tempered chocolate, these bunnies are completely handmade by LCC’s most seasoned chocolatiers. LCC took its time developing a line of organic chocolates, ensuring that the balanced flavors the company is known for continue to be present in its gourmet organic chocolate.

The Organic Chocolate Hopp’n Bunny is wrapped in a compostable cellophane bag and tied with a ribbon created with yarn made from recycled plastic bottles, making it the ultimate treat for those looking to celebrate Easter while also paying tribute to Earth Day, which happen to fall in the same week this year.

“Including organic chocolates in our line of chocolate Easter gifts was a natural fit for us. The bunny is designed to appeal to children, giving parents a wholesome, organic and all-natural choice,” said Allyson Myers, Director of Sales and Marketing for LCC. “And with Easter and Earth Day being so close together this year, we took it as a timely opportunity to create an eco-friendly chocolate gift to encourage consumers to have a green celebration.”

In addition to offering handcrafted organic chocolate bunnies, Lake Champlain Chocolates has a variety of cream-filled Chocolate Easter Eggs, classic Easter Chocolate Bunnies available in milk, dark or white chocolate, chocolate selection boxes filled with LCC’s most popular Easter chocolates, and much more.

The Organic Chocolate Hopp’n Bunny and other LCC products can be found online at www.LakeChamplainChocolates.com and at select gourmet retailers nationwide.

Preservative-free and Kosher-certified, Lake Champlain Chocolates are crafted in small batches from the finest quality chocolate and select natural ingredients including local Vermont cream, sweet butter, maple syrup and honey. The company offers a variety of gifts including super-premium chocolate covered fruits and nuts, chocolate truffles, chocolate gift baskets and its ever-popular Chocolate of the Month Club. Lake Champlain Chocolates are available online, by calling toll-free at 800-465-5909, as corporate gifts and wedding favors, at three company-owned retail stores in Vermont, and nationwide at specialty food and gift stores and upscale hotels and inns.
