BOSTON, March 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The following press release is being issued on behalf of UNREAL®: The Easter Bunny today announced that he has been a bad, bad bunny and issued a formal apology for the candy he's been putting in baskets. He admits he never read the labels and was shocked to learn about all the artificial ingredients, corn syrup, preservatives and other junk in the candy that he's been handing out each spring. The Bunny recognizes it's a problem and as a result, he has announced that he will be changing his ways. The Easter Bunny hopes everyone will join in his movement to unjunk candy – including all of the candy companies.
"I am so sorry I didn't read the labels earlier. I had no idea," expressed the Easter Bunny. "Does anyone even know what partially hydrogenated oils, PGPR and shellac are?"
As a way to make amends, he set out to find a way that people everywhere could still enjoy candy, without the junk, with less sugar, and more nutrition. The good news is that he found it.
The Bunny shared, "I'm going to make things right. Luckily, I found this little company UNREAL that makes candy from all real stuff and is the best candy I ever tasted."
The Easter Bunny issued the following letter today from his personal rabbit hole:
I am so very sorry.
For years, I have been hopping around giving out candy, and I never read the labels.
Well, recently I did, and it made my fur stand straight up.
I have been a bad, bad bunny.
Luckily, I found this little company, UNREAL®, that makes candy from all real stuff. It's the best candy I ever tasted!
I really think you're going to love it.
Let me know. I'm all ears.
