IKEA Releases Chocolate Easter Bunny You Assemble Before You Eat
IKEA is best known for its ready-to-assemble furniture, but the Swedish retailer has produced some cult food items as well. A new product combines the brand's two specialties: As Business Insider reports, IKEA's new chocolate bunny comes in three pieces that fit together like one of the store's famous flat-pack furniture sets.
Released ahead of Easter, which falls on Sunday, April 21 this year, VÅRKÄNSLA makes you work for your candy. The components—legs, a body, and a pair of ears—lay flat in their pastel polka-dotted box. After joining the parts together, you have a 3D figure that's ready to stand up in your Easter display—or be consumed right away.
The milk chocolate bunny is made with 30 percent cocoa and costs $4.91 for 3 ounces. It's now available in IKEA stores in the UK, but there's no word when it might arrive at U.S. locations.
This isn't the first time IKEA has experimented with creative foodstuffs. Last year, the company released veggie hot dogs made from kale, lentils, and carrots, and IKEA's test kitchen has developed meatballs made from bugs and algae.
