Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Animal Theme Week. Included in theme weeks like this are a variety of tenuous connections between chocolate and animals -- which, like Hoppy McCarrot -- referred to on this Russell Stover Bunny Bar label, are often used to sell products. Yes, I know most of you are shocked, simply shocked, to hear that cute, fuzzy woodland creatures are used in this way. But, it's true. And, I certainly bought into this marketing strategy -- to the tune of 1,000,000,000 -- the denomination of this chocolate bunny note. A billion is a good round number, although I'm not sure what bunny units we may be talking about with this U.S. made bar, shaped like a monetary instrument and stamped with "In Bunnies We Trust" on the outside label, and "In Chocolate We Trust" on the bar itself.

Should you invest in fine art, or in chocolate? Who's to know what the better strategy might be in the long term; however, in the short term, I can tell you that eating solid milk chocolate bunny money is sweet.
