I was just in my local Foodworks store and they were stocking the shelves for the new specials starting tomorrow and they were placing unopened boxes of MaltEaster bunnies on the shelves, I gasped when I saw them and the shop assistant nearby me heard and told me they are so popular and sell out so quickly that they are now going to sell them by the boxful, 32 in a box, so I now have to try and justify spending $35 on chocolate.
I love my chocolate and even vented over Cadbury no longer making the marble chocolate, but can I really spend that much on myself?...Would you?

Of course you can spend that much on yourself, but on chocolate? I would be very worried about eating them all in a week lol

Having tried one for the first time last week I say YES!

Damn you EB - if it wasn't for you I would have been happy with Cadbury Creme Eggs!

1. It is NOT Easter yet.
2. You are paying for air! Just buy regular chocolate. You get more real chocolate that way for less money.

Because people here were raving about them last year I bought one last year and thought it was yuck. I bought another this year just make sure and yep it's yuck - I love Malteasers just don't like these bunnies, so my vote is no don't buy it.

They are pretty delicious, I think I could justify the $32 for the box! Not sure I could justify the next $32 when I have to go back later in the week to replenish the first box which I'd already eaten!

I'd buy it! Every time I see them at my local woolies I buy whatever's left.
Bad time of year for me when they are around.
