The Cadbury bunny has been the face of Easter for years, but this year, the holiday's getting a canine-like twist.


You know, this sweet little clucking thing?

Well, his reign is over... for now.

That's right: This year's "Cadbury bunny" isn't a bunny at all. It's an 18-month-old bulldog.

Its name is Henri and it won the candy company's first "Bunny Tryouts" competition. Over 4,000 pets participated in the competition, which ended Saturday. To enter, pet owners had to submit photos of their pets wearing bunny ears.

The announcement was posted to Henri's official Instagram account. It reads:

WE WON!!! Henri wants to send out a HUGE SMOOCH to everyone who showed him some love. BIG HUGS to all who entered the contest. Your bunny pics made us smile! A HUGE Thank You to the wonderful people at Cadbury USA and to Doug The Pug, guest judge, for picking Henri! He would LOVE to meet you one day and share a Smooch!

Here's the moment when Cadbury proclaimed Henri the winner:

Quite the news: This is the first time Cadbury's gone ahead with a change to its ad for cream-filled chocolate eggs in 35 years. The new ad airs next month, on April 21. Henri––and his owners, of course––will receive $5,000 for their participation. Cadbury has announced it will donate $10,000 to the ASPCA.

Is Henri cut out for his big break? People seem to think so. He has fans already!





"We are honored to expand our tradition and welcome Henri as a new character to the commercial,"Cadbury spokeswoman Katrina Vatter said in a press release.

Way to go, pup!

You know, I've seen countless "no texting while driving campaigns" and I agree with the premise. I think it is dangerous not to have your eyes on the road. That's how accidents happen. With that said, don't car manufacturers think it's counterintuitive to include touchscreens instead of knobs or dials in new cars these days? You have to take your eyes off the road to adjust anything. I think it's hazardous, especially if you happen to be driving in inclement weather.

After Redditor TheTenthDimension asked the online community, "What's your best example of 'Whoever designed this must not use their own product'?" people shared some suggestions.

If only all the things we excelled at were also the very things we loved to do most. But sadly, that is not the way it goes.

Instead, some horrible force of the universe made you way better at, say, sewing the holes of pants than playing guitar. The universe can be a spiteful, fickle jerk.

In a perfect world, family has your back harder than anyone else.

In the real world, it can sometimes be your family that cuts deeper than anyone else. Intentional or not, the people closest to you have the ability to seriously super suck.

No, you're not the only one who has dealt with a mom who just, for the life of themselves, can't NOT be critical. Or a dad who just always seemed chronically underwhelmed by you.

Society is an odd conundrum when you attempt to wrap your head around it. This phenomena typically occurs whenever you witness a new trend or share experience and everyone seems to go along with it. Only much later, when you think about it with a bit of critical thinking, do you notice something might be off.

Going against society can be strained, difficult, like pulling back a sticker that's been on way too long, however sometimes it's necessary to get rid of what we probably shouldn't be so welcoming of.
