Aldi’s Easter Bunny Candies Look More Phallic Than Delicious

It’s that time of year. Candy is abundant, and much of it is in the shape of bunnies, chicks, and more. Only, Aldi’s experienced quite the fail because their marshmallow bunnies don’t quite look like what you’d expect.

If you visit Twitter, you can find plenty of people talking about the bag of “Marshmallow Bunnies and Chicks.” And in case you’re wondering what the controversy is all about, the bunnies look more like something that rhymes with chicks.

It’s quite evident if you get your hands on a bag of these candies – or simply check out the many photos of people sharing what they found at the store.

It’s a phallic Easter candy, everyone.

Most companies usually figure out how to ignore such comments. And some will even jump to apologize.

Aldi took a different approach. They acknowledged that they had made a mistake, retweeted the photo, and commented, “We can’t even defend this one.”

It’s hard to defend it when everyone already knows what the marshmallows look like.

Perhaps this isn’t the candy you want to sprinkle into your child’s Easter basket this year. Then again, anyone who is planning a bachelorette party may want to think about picking up a few bags before they are completely taken off the shelves.
