“Honey Bunnies” Return to Great Harvest Bread for Easter

Customers to see limited-time foods, including famous Honey Bunnies, Hot Cross Buns and Sugar Cookies

April 10, 2017 // Franchising.com // DILLON, Mont. - Great Harvest Bread has announced the return of one of its most popular seasonal items, the “Honey Bunny,” just in time for Easter.

Beginning this April, participating Great Harvest bakery-cafe locations across the United States will offer Honey Bunnies, a bread bunny handcrafted by artisan bakers that include only five simple ingredients: Great Harvest’s fresh ground whole-wheat flour, honey, yeast, water and salt. A perfect centerpiece for Easter tables, the bunnies are made without additives, preservatives or conditioners.

Various locations will also offer Hot Cross Buns, its popular Virginia rolls, and a variety of other sweet and savory items for the holiday, including Easter sugar cookies. Hot Cross Buns are an annual favorite at locations across the country and store owners recommend early purchases to ensure they do not run out. Great Harvest will continue to serve a variety of sandwiches, pastries, muffins, soups and salads for breakfast, lunch and dinner as well.

“Honey Bunnies are unique to Great Harvest and one of our favorite seasonal items on our menu,” said Mike Ferretti, CEO of Great Harvest Bread Co. “We take special amounts of time out of each day to create these bunnies with precision and make them a perfect, delicious addition to Easter lunches and dinners all over the country.”

Grain bowls, cinnamon rolls, scones and bars will also be available to the public.

Great Harvest Bread bakeries make bread from scratch with whole grains shipped directly as wheat berry from select farms in Montana’s Golden Triangle. Every day flour is milled fresh from the wheat berry at each local Great Harvest bakery. Generally a five-hour process, the baking begins every day as early as 2:30 a.m. Every loaf is kneaded by hand, baked and served fresh to all guests who enter at all three dayparts – breakfast, lunch and dinner.
