When you think about it, frogs and bunnies aren’t that different. They both hop, and they are both Easter icons — at least this year.
The Hershey Co. announced this week that Betty, an Australian White’s tree frog, is the winner of the third-annual Cadbury Bunny Tryouts.
Betty is set to star in the Cadbury Clucking Bunny national TV commercial this spring, the company said in its news release.
“Betty’s been a great addition to our home, and we are so glad we get to share her with the rest of the world,” said Kaitlyn Vidal, Betty’s owner, of Stuart, Florida. “She has been a wonderful companion at college and thanks to the support of my friends, family and the amphibian community, I know she’ll make Cadbury proud as she inherits the bunny ears.”
The frog beat over 12,000 entries nationwide, including a donkey, a miniature horse and a goat. Betty takes over the mantle from last year’s winner: Lieutenant Dan, a two-legged coonhound.
Hershey isn’t the only one in the Easter spirit. Mondelez International brought back Oreo Cookies & Creme Eggs to Target stores in the U.S. for a limited time, and Pepsi recently announced its partnership with the marshmallow brand Peeps to launch the limited-edition PEPSI x PEEPS beverage.
