It’s not really the Easter season until you see the most adorable pets sporting a pair of bunny ears. Yes, the bunny is the star of the holiday, but for the fourth year in a row, Cadbury is getting all the cutest pets in on the fun — and the resulting photos are really a treat for everyone. Cadbury’s 2022 Bunny Tryouts are in the finalists phase, and there are 10 sweet animals to choose from that run the gamut from dogs to bearded dragons. Even if you didn’t enter your fur baby in the cutest contest of all time, you can still take part in giving one of the finalists the chance to be featured in the brand’s Clucking Bunny commercial.

Cadbury announced the epic comeback of its Bunny Tryouts on Feb. 1, and it’s almost over. After the 20 semi-finalists competed in the video submission phase, it was narrowed down to 10 finalists from the video submissions. Finally, as of March 8, it’s time for the public vote. Now, I’m not saying casting your vote will be easy, because all of these “bunnies” are pretty much perfect and amazing in every way. Alas, it is your duty to make this Easter as cute as possible, so before you head to the Cadbury contest voting page, I’ll fill you in on the furry (and not-so-fury) finalists.

There are three doggos in the mix, Annie Rose, Cali, and Reese, a cat named Will O’ Wisp, Sprinkles the sugar glider, Skeeter the Parrotlet, a therapy mini horse named Sweetheart, Eclipse the llama, Maple the hedgehog, and Cheeto Puff the Magic Dragon (a bearded dragon, of course). Honestly, the range coming from some of these pets is truly impressive — a bunny with no fur? Go off, Cheeto Puff.

In addition to $5,000 going to the winning pet, during the public voting phase, Cadbury will donate $5,000 to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), and an extra $5,000 for every 5,000 votes received on the website — so it’s a good idea to cast a vote in order to help the cause.

Once voting closes on March 22, the judges will re-judge the 10 finalists based on the following factors: “relevance to contest theme, creativity, brand appeal, and public appeal.” The video submission with the highest score will be deemed the one grand prize winner, who will receive a check for $5,000 as well as have their pet featured in a nationwide commercial.

The winner will film their Cadbury commercial between March 25 and March 27, so you can keep an eye out for the newest Easter star not too long after that. All that’s left to do is head to the Cadbury Bunny Tryout website and try to pick your favorite “bunny” from all the cuteness.
