An April Fool’s trick with a side of chocolate bunnies, please

With the Easter holiday and April Fool’s Day falling on the same day, creative trickery in the shape of chocolate rabbits could escalate to epic levels of sugar-coated insanity, so be on the lookout!  It’s common knowledge that rabbits are genetically wired for trickery, but you may not be aware that candy rabbits are even worse! Not to mention humans ‘hopped-up’ on sugar.

Celebrated by Christians around the world, some historians assert that Easter is rooted in secular rituals that focus on the pagan goddess Eostre, who was thought to usher in the season of spring with advice from a sage rabbit who could lay eggs—hence the centuries-old tradition of chocolate Easter bunnies and painted eggs.

Also harkening back to ancient times is April Fool’s Day, which continues to be celebrated (or should we say acted upon) around the world, maybe because it’s the one day of the year when we are sanctioned, encouraged even, to prank, trick and be sillier than normal without consequences (depending of course, on how elaborate the trick is).

And like all companies with a reverence for tradition and a sense of humor, The Cuyahoga Group appreciates a good natured trick—just keep it away from our offices, warehouses, associates, markets and vending machines, and remember, even rabbits can’t escape the eye of the security camera!

So, while we’re fooling our loved ones this April 1st, try to keep it within safe limits, otherwise, you may create an irreparable chocolate debacle of Peter Rabbit proportions—and who will be the April Fool then?
