Our Special Chocolate Easter Bunny's Family History
Our chocolate rabbits are named for Robert L Strohecker, grandfather of Harbor Sweets' founder Ben Strohecker. Grandpa Strohecker's early promotions of chocolate rabbits earned him the title of "Father" of the Easter bunny business.
In the photo (circa 1890) Grandpa Strohecker stands next to his 5 foot chocolate rabbit. The chocolate rabbit was constructed at Luden's factory in Reading, PA where Grandpa Strohecker was connected with William H Luden in the manufacture of candy. The chocolate rabbit was displayed in the window of the local department store. (The names of those who got a nibble are lost to history!)
