Karen Anderson, from Blair, NJ, knows all about my strange family Easter ritual that involves a certain chocolate bunny named Parsnip Pete. Every year, I have driven blog readers crazy by trying to locate Parsnip Pete to give my husband for Easter.
Parsnip Pete, who somehow became a family Easter Basket Favorite, more than 2 decades ago, is becoming harder and harder to spot. One year, I tried to substitute another brand of chocolate bunny, like Pitstop Pete or the Lil Professor, but the family rebelled.
Karen is a kind soul. You see, she sent me 2 Parsnip Petes to surprise me, then when it didn’t arrive, sent me two more!! Here they are:
Notice that the first two are rather sickly?
Yes, it took them several weeks to get here, so perhaps Parsnip Pete # 1 and 2 had an unfortunate detour to somewhere HOT!! LOL
Notice the bright yellow eyes? The fluffy bows? Thank you, Karen, for making my life simply wonderful with your gifts!!! I owe you one, friend!
Keep watching…. a Parsnip Pete cartoon, an annual Feathered Fibers ritual, may yet appear!! Hugs, Carla
