Today I bring you the first of my Easter Super Posts for 2010 and we are starting off with BATTLE OF THE BUNNIES!
In the Red Corner weighing in at 29.0g we have the 2009 Chocolate Bunny Champion .... Mars Malteser MaltEaster Bunny!!!!!
Maltesers MaltEaster - See HERE
In the Blue Corner - weighing 26.0g we have the Nestle Kit Kat Chunky Bunny
Kcal 138 Fat 7.6g Carbs 15.9g (per bar)
The first challenger to the MaltEaster crown we have Nestle's Bunny. This Kit Kat Chunky Bunny cost me 49p from Tesco and was priced at 6p cheaper than the original Chunky bar.
If you look at the cross-section above the only difference between this bar and the normal Chunky was the Bunny design printed on the top and the significantly thinner base of milk chocolate. Tastewise this was absolutely no different to what you get from a normal Kit Kat - the milk chocolate was sweet, whilst the wafer was slightly malty and wheaty in taste. To be honest the 26.0g didn't fufill me and I felt a little begrudged that I had parted with the amount of money I did for satisfaction I didn't get in return - hey at least it tasted damn nice.

Now considering that Cadbury Caramel is one of my favourite chocolates ever these Cadbury Caramel Bunnies were really going to have to do something spectacularly wrong to get a ChocolateMission thumbs down.
These Cadbury Caramel Bunnies cost me 50p (Tesco again) which was cheaper than the MaltEaster but a whole 1p more expensive than the above Kit Kat Bunny product. Speaking of the taste it was exactly as I expected - absolutely delicious! I have written many a review before on different Cadbury Caramel products (HERE) speaking highly of the classical combination of the creamy milk chocolate and sweet nectar caramel so I will point you in the direction of those reviews for a full rundown. All you need to know here was that these Cadbury Caramel Bunnies incorporated all the goodness of the bar in some novelty shaped bunny pieces. The only disapointing attributes for me was that I didn't find the bunny shapes as practical to eat or quite as fulfilling as the normal block bar.

Ladies and Gentlemen after several rounds of non-stop tasting we go to the scorecards ....
... and the winner ...
.... and NEWWWWWWW Chocolate Bunny Champion of the UK .....
........ Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel Bunnies!!!!!
Disagree? Why not drop a comment with which you feel is superior! I personally would choose the Cadbury Caramel Bunnies if given the choice between the three, but that said I really do rate the Maltesers MaltEaster as a close second. Please don't accuse me of Nestle bashing but I simply can't find a reason to buy the Kit Kat product given the fact that for another 6p you can get a full-on Chunky! This does beg the question why didn't they just stick the bunny pattern on top of the regular Chunky and save on having to design the new sized wrappers etc :S ho hum!! The Cadbury Dairy Milk Caramel Bunny wins for me!
