A tree frog named Betty has been named the 2021 Cadbury ‘bunny’

March 30, 2021

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, USA Today reports.

Hershey announced this week that Betty—an Australian White’s Tree Froghas won the Easter brand’s third-annual Cadbury Bunny Tryouts.

Betty is set to star in the Cadbury Clucking Bunny nationwide 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 Suart, 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.

And Hershey isn’t the only company that’s in the Easter spirit. Oreo cookies brought back the Oreo Easter Cookies to U.S. Target stores for a limited time;and Pepsi recently announced its partnership with the marshmallow brand Peep to launch the limited-edition PEPSI x PEEPS beverage.
