How are Bunnies and Eggs an Easter Tradition?

Last year at Rocket Foods we released delicious Easter cookies that won the hearts of customers young and old. This year we decided to bring them back with a brand-new look but with the same delicious flavour and an added bonus. A lollie tail on the delicious bunny!

A bunny and eggs though? For Easter? It’s always the top question around this time of year – what do bunnies and eggs have to with Easter tradition?  We all know that the holiday surrounds a Christian celebration, so then what do bunnies and eggs have to do with anything?

As legend has it, church leaders leading up to Easter weren’t allowed to eat eggs during the Holy Week. The eggs were then saved and decorated to make them ‘Holy Week’ eggs. From there, they were given to the children as gifts. The bunnies are said to come into play around the 19th Century as bunnies give birth to big litters, they are a symbol of new life – linking back to the Christian celebration.

So, bunnies and eggs are truly a sign of Easter! Let us introduce you to our treacle cookies packaged in our premium retail brand, Rocket Kitchen. We have two different varieties available for you to choose from both with treacle dough base. Our cookies are cut and finished by hand and deliciously iced. Perfect for the whole family!
