Now celebrating their 10-year partnership – the team at Lindt Chocolate Ireland are planning to Make Easter Sweet for Temple Street yet again, by bringing the magic of Easter to Dundrum Town Centre with their Lindt Gold Bunny Personalisation Pop-up.

From this Friday to Saturday, Dundrum Town Centre customers will be given the opportunity to personalise their very own Lindt Gold Bunny 200g for just €6, with funds raised going to Temple Street Children’s University Hospital.

To help launch the campaign, we’ve got FIVE 1KG bunnies to give away. Five!

‘Roses are red,

Lindt bunnies are gold,

    Is barren and cold’

    I eat breakfast shreddies.

    ‘Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    Here is my heart,
    for Mildred to hold.

    1. Bertie Blenkinsop

      ‘Roses are red,
      Lindt bunnies are gold,
      Mildred got a barring order,
      Now that’s feckIn cold.

        1. Bertie Blenkinsop

          Roses are red,
          Lindt bunnies are gold,
          Her hubby will bate ya,

          1. Brother Barnabas

            Roses are red,

            You and Mildred leg it,
            The hubby, I’ll hold

          2. Spaghetti Hoop

            Roses are red,
            Lindt bunnies are yellow,
            If you get off with just a beating
            You’re a fierce lucky fellow

          3. Bertie Blenkinsop

            Roses are red,
            Kate Moss is skinny,
            How do I do that,
            When I’m barred from Loughshinny?

          4. Bertie Blenkinsop

            Roses are red,
            Spaghetti Hoop is wise,
            She promised a clatter,
            Just like David Moyes.

  4. Spaghetti Hoop

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    The Bishop says no chocolate,
    You’ll do as your told.

  5. ZeligIsJaded

    ‘Roses are red,

    Lindt bunnies are gold,

    I haven’t had chocolate,

    since I’ve been on the dole’

    1. Bertie Blenkinsop

      Roses are red
      Lindt bunnies are gold
      We’d best check on Papi
      When the weather gets cold

      1. Graham F

        And I think I would be inclined to kick you in the jingly bits for making fun of an older gent like that

        1. Bertie Blenkinsop

          Roses are red
          Lindt bunnies are gold
          Internet tough guys
          are a pain in the hole

          1. Papi

            Now now, be nice, no-one is kicking anyone anywhere and given that I’m in Norway, checking for hypothermia is actually very sweet…
            Like chocolate!!!!

  6. Turgenev

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold.
    Is that you, Jesus?
    Feck, he’s put me on hold.

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      Roses are red,
      Lindt bunnies are gold,
      Jesus is ex-directory
      I guess you’ve been trolled.

      1. Bertie Blenkinsop

        Roses are red,
        Lindt bunnies are boss,
        Best keep him an egg,
        In case he gets off that cross.

        1. Spaghetti Hoop

          Roses are red,
          Lindt bunnies do glisten,
          You don’t get to eat them
          Till the good lord is risen

          1. Bertie Blenkinsop

            Roses are red,
            Lindt bunnies are grand,
            I hope he can hold them,
            With the hole in his hand.

          2. Spaghetti Hoop

            Roses are red,
            Lindt bunnies seem pathetic
            Since the lord can’t eat chocolate
            He became diabetic

          3. Bertie Blenkinsop

            Roses are red,
            It’s the work of the Devil,
            To make fun of Our Lord’s,
            Blood sugar level.

  7. Graham F

    Roses are red
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    If your an adult man or woman who goes around eating sugar sh1te molded into the shape of an egg to celebrate pagan virgins then your daft in the head. Leave this carry on to children and imbeciles

  8. Holden MaGroin

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    this corporate shilling
    is getting quite old.

  9. Holden MaGroin

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    This rhyme’s meant for Valentine’s
    Stealing it’s bold.

  10. $hifty

    Roses are red,
    Bunnies are gold,
    we’re all getting Easter eggs!
    Unless we’ve been bold
    :-(

  11. Sheik Yahbouti

    Sorry lads. but just saw this report (not featured on BS) ” PAC must pay two thirds of Kerins ‘ costs”)?!? This is NOT good enough.

      1. Kenny U-Vox Plank

        Roses are red
        Lindt bunnies are gold
        Angela Kerins got off lighly
        A pup the Irish taxpayer’s been sold.

          1. Sheik Yahbouti

            On foot of that I’m rippling me muscles, and hoisting my (impressive) drawbridge ;-)

    1. Sheik Yahbouti

      PAC will pay sod all. It is thee and me who will pay – that is NOT acceptable.

    Please click on the fold.

  13. Kenny U-Vox Plank

    ‘Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    A #nom to make up for the weather,
    Because Easter will be cold.’

  14. Nigel

    Roses are red
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    The bunnies are screaming
    You dipped them in gold.

  15. Al Jeers

    ‘Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    For maximum benefit
    Smoke some pre-rolled.”

  16. TonyR

    Roses are red
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    A perfect treat for my daughters
    Who are seven and eleven years old

  17. Spaghetti Hoop

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    ‘Yizzer all a pack o’ heathens’
    The Archbishop growled

  18. Garbo

    Roses are red
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    This one’s for the kids
    So lets help them get sold

    1. Boj

      Hickey is out
      cos he knew the right guys
      corruption not hidden,
      put before our very eyes.

  19. Rugbyfan

    Roses are red,

    Lindt bunnies are gold,

    Jesus died on Good Friday,

    or so we’ve been told

  20. psicic

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    They do it for Temple Street,
    So consider me sold!

  21. Daisy Chainsaw

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    Chocolate rabbitty goodness?
    Consider me sold!

  22. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    Though strictly speaking it’s
    The foil that’s gold
    Not the bunnies.

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      Roses are red,
      Lindt bunnies are brown
      But without the fancy jackets
      Lindt’s sales would go down

  23. Dead Poets Society

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    Broadsheet does leaden prose
    So would you please stop feeding the troll

  24. Marti

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    Chocolate breaks with a ‘crack’
    when eaten cold

  25. catsiglierie

    Roses are red
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    sugar is sweet
    and, as a result, the medical consensus on the dangers of its consumption would suggest that eating 1kg of chocolate is more than a little bold

  26. Digs

    Roses be re
    Lindt bunnies be gold
    When chocolates in bloom
    Some say it looks like mould.

    ( as well as having swell assonance, this is also a statement of fact. Win win)

  27. Boj

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    Pay your water charges,
    Now you’ve been trolled.
    OR
    I like Danger Mouse
    But not Penfold
    OR
    My engine’s not running well,
    best check the manifold.
    OR
    I’d grab Enda Kenny
    in a chokehold
    OR
    This rhyme is meaningless
    so you should have just scrolled.

  28. Murtles

    Roses are red
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    Munchin chocolate rabbits
    Makes you happier fourfold

  29. MoyestWithExcitement

    Roses are red
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    I’ve run out of prozak
    So I’ll eat the thing whole.

  30. pooter

    Roses are red
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    Give the prizes to Crumlin Hospital
    Little folk love chocolate, or so i’m told

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      +1. I don’t think anyone is going to take the chocolate. Just deliver the bunnies to Temple St ;)

      1. Andyourpointiswhatexactly?

        OH RIGHT!
        I mean, I thought of that. I didn’t just realise that that’s the right thing to do.

    Roses are red

  32. Janet, I ate my avatar

    Roses are red
    I’m only after stuffing 3 bunnies in my gob
    because I’m your target market

    1. Janet, I ate my avatar

      oh something about orgasm and chocolate
      or chocolate dildos or chocolate pot bellied pigs
      I’m confused

  33. Chrissy

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    I am entering this in work,
    Is that really bold?!

    1. Bertie Blenkinsop

      Roses are red,
      You asked was it rude,
      Only if you’re,
      at your desk in the nude.

  34. Horselover Fat

    Roses are red
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    I like to eat chocolate
    And sit on me hole

  35. Kearnivale

    Roses are red,
    Lindt Bunnies are gold,
    No one buys me Easter eggs,
    Ever since I got old.

    :(

  36. Dancost

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    They’re far more appealing ,
    Than Playboy’s centre fold.

  37. StevieG

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    My other half’s mad at me
    So she needs to be cajoled…

  38. Kerry59

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    Didn’t get one egg last year,
    I couldn’t be consoled.

  39. Al Jeers

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    If they get chocolate myxomatosis
    They’ll all turn to mold…

  40. Gooch Gooch Gooch

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    With kids off for Easter,
    Freebies wanted for my household!!!

  41. Aisling

    Roses are red,
    Lindt Bunnies are gold,
    I can’t be arsed write a poem,
    So where are they sold?

  42. Spaghetti Hoop

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are shiny
    Forget that picture
    They’re really quite tiny.

    1. bertie blenkinsop

      Roses are red,
      Shylock was frugal,
      “These one are small” Hoops,
      As Ted said to Dougal

      1. Spaghetti Hoop

        Roses are red,
        Lindt Bunnies are okay,
        It’s not that they’re small
        They’re just far away

        1. bertie blenkinsop

          Roses are red,
          Hoop’s rhymes are the best,
          They’re more action packed,
          Than Bruce Willis’ vest.

  43. Aisling

    Roses are red,
    Lindt Bunnies are gold,
    a kilo of chocolate,
    would delight me fourfold

    1. Spaghetti Hoop

      Roses are red,
      Lindt Bunnies are tatty
      a kilo of chocolate,
      would make you a fatty.

      aaah…I can’t stop :\

      Roses are red,
      Lindt Bunnies bells chiming
      I need to now cease
      this ridiculous rhyming

  44. Kolmo

    Roses are red,
    Lindt Bunnies are gold
    I’d eat all of this
    soon after the spliff I had rolled..

  45. Nigel

    Roses are red
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    Once again the giant chocolate rabbit of Spring
    Rises in mighty leaps to defeat the ancient Winter goat.

  46. Kenny U-Vox Plank

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    Fantastic offer by Lindt,
    Even though they knew they’d be trolled.

    or (for the Gaeilge-lovers out there)

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    Their chocolate is great,
    I could eat it by geansaí-load.

  47. mildred st. meadowlark

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold
    The number of entries
    Couldn’t have been fortold

  48. wifflewaffle

    Roses are red,
    Lindt bunnies are gold,
    But how the bunnies are fed,
    Only Lindt knows.

  49. Zena

    Roses are red,

    Lindt bunnies are gold,

    If I win this little cutie,

    Over, I will be bowled.
