Ikea Is Selling A Flat-Pack Chocolate Bunny For You To Build, Then Demolish This Easter

Now, then. As you'll know, Easter is on its way, which means we're all gearing ourselves up for a whole lotta chocolate.

But while everyone rushes to the supermarkets to frantically fill up their baskets with all the Easter eggs in the world, frenzied at the prospect of so much sugar, there's something that might just let you get creative, too.

Ikea has nailed it this year with a flat-pack milk chocolate bunny, which comes in three separate pieces so you can assemble it yourself. Just like when you buy a wardrobe, but tastier and a darn sight easier.

You can get hold of the DIY bunny in all Ikea stores barring Greenwich and Tottenham Court Road in London and all order/collection points.

The rabbit costs just £2.95 and is available until Easter (which this year falls on Sunday 21 April 2019) or until stocks last - so make sure you hop to it if you don't want to miss out.

Part of the VÅRKÄNSLA range, Ikea has created the three-piece milk chocolate rabbit using only certified cacao from sustainable sources, and it's sure to go down a treat with flat-pack fans.

It ties in with Ikea's sustainability strategy, in which the retailer aims to transform the furniture business, the industries in the Ikea value chain and home life for people across the world by 2030.

The retailer explains: "Not only is Ikea's VÅRKÄNSLA chocolate bunny super delicious, it can also double up as a decorative Easter figure, perfect for your seasonal celebrations."

Not sure it's going to last long as a decoration in many homes, to be honest, but we appreciate the sentiment.

Of course, if you're feeling too lazy for any DIY action this Easter, there are still plenty of other options to sink your teeth into.

That includes the Marmite 'Yeaster Egg', which has returned this year to divide chocolate fans across the UK.

The product description for the 160g hollow egg, which costs £3 in Asda, reads: "Yeast extract. Full on flavour. The one and only yeastier egg. 100% vegetarian."

Marmite also states on the box that whether we love it or hate it, 'you just have to try it!'

Reckon you'd be brave enough to give it a go?
