M&S Chocolate Easter Bunny Goes Viral For Its Suggestive Pose
Marks and Spencer has released a special kind of chocolate Easter egg this year that has captured the attention of social media. The chocolate in question, called a 'yoga bunny' egg, is in the shape of a rabbit performing everyone's favourite yoga pose - the downward dog.
Easter falls on 21st April this year, a little later than usual, which would make you think that the product creatives over at M&S might have had a bit more time to check this one over.
People across social media have been quick to comment for its, ahem, suggestive pose, saying it looks like less of a yoga pose and more like one of a sexual nature.
This isn't the first time Marks and Spencer has sold some interesting food - their 'Love Sausage' back in February for Valentine's day got one Twitter user asking for sympathy at this time for Marks & Spencer retail staff who have to sell these products with a straight face.
Prayers for those of us who have to try and sell this product with a straight face appeciated Fr. Also, if you haven't yet seen the 'Yoga Bunny' egg M&S has brought out, I unwillinging draw your attention to it...https://t.co/vQlQd4z8Ep

One Twitter user even likened it to fictional character Jessica Rabbit.

But Marks & Spencer were quick to deny that it was sexually suggestive.
Suggestive? It's merely a bunny in the "downwards-facing dog" yoga position, Christian!

Priced at just £6, it is only one in Marks and Sparks' Easter egg range which also includes a Prosecco egg (priced at £5 and infused with raspberry, blackcurrant and Prosecco) and a Ruby egg costing £10.
Marks & Spencer says that they have spent decades developing ruby chocolate, and that they are "the latest trend in confectionery".
The range has been designed by Katy Patino, Marks & Spencer's in-house Easter egg developer.
This year's collection has been described by M&S as the "most delicious and innovative range yet".
We can't wait to get stuck in.
