"Happy Herbert" is a milk
chocolate rabbit made by the Candy Kitchen along
"He's 100 percent pure milk chocolate. I only use the best Swiss chocolate that's around, and this guy is fantastic, and he's luscious, and he's delicious, and the first thing that goes are the ears," says John Leos, owner of the Candy Kitchen.
You can buy raffle tickets at eight downtown locations between now and March 28th. The drawing will take place on March 29th.
The winner gets to take Herbert home, and all the proceeds will benefit the partnership.
"Every year, the chocolate bunny gets a lot of attention. It's not every day you see a four-foot tall chocolate bunny hopping around downtown, but it does capture the fun and unique spirit of downtown Frederick," says Brittany Diehl, with the Downtown Frederick Partnership.
The bunny comes with a basket of creme-filled eggs and weighs a whopping 25 pounds.
