Do we bite the "butt" or lop off the ears first?

There are many ways to chow down on that Easter favorite.  But according to the National Confectionery Association (NCA),  here's how we like to proceed.  From a recent study where about 1,000 people were randomly questioned nationwide:

  • 76% start with the ears
  • 5% feet first
  • 4% tail first

The rest of the survey participants were a wide mix of breaking it into sections,  biting the middle or breaking it in half.   The NCA says this year some 90 million chocolate bunnies of all shapes and sizes will be sold (and consumed!) along with about 16 billion jelly beans.
