Donning a large pink moustache and rolling its eyes in disinterest, this is not your average Easter bunny. That's because it's a hipster, says owner of this Belgian chocolate company Myriam Wittamer. SOUNDBITE: Chocolate Shop Owner Myriam Wittamer saying (English) "It started with the moustache. And then, our graphic designer went on with the hipster movement, which is a bit, in French we would say decale, offbeat, which is not quite revolutionary." While perhaps not revolutionary it's filled with surprises, such as its head that hides dozens of chocolate eggs. Another surprise is its popularity, says chef Michael Lewis-Anderson. SOUNDBITE: Chef Decorator Michael Lewis-Anderson saying (English) "We come in in the morning, and we say, we see the shop actually, we go in and check the shop to see what's left over from the following day, and we see the shop and say, 'Oh, there's no more left. What's happened?'" Perhaps they went home with people craving a trendier Easter culture.
