FAIRFAX, Va., April 13, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ThinkGeek is proud to announce the release of its Chocolate Zombie Bunny, which has the distinction of being this year's first gag April Fool's product to become a reality. This 7.25" twist on a classic candy mold delivers 8oz of solid white chocolate that's sure to set the standard for confectionery carnage for years to come.

"The Chocolate Zombie Bunny was one of the most popular products from this year's crop of ideas," says Ty Liotta, head of ThinkGeek's GeekLabs. "Thousands of customers voted for this product to become real and we're excited we could turn the project around in record time."

The Chocolate Zombie Bunny joins the ranks of other famed ThinkGeek April Fools pranks to spring into the real world.   These include the Tauntaun Sleeping Bag, My First Bacon, Unicorn Meat, Personal Soundtrack Shirt, 8-bit Tie and the upcoming iCade.

Just in time for those Easter baskets, the Chocolate Zombie Bunny is available now for $14.99 at ThinkGeek.com. Hop on over as quickly as possible! For more information, contact PR representative Jessica Darrican at Jessica@maxborgesagency.com or 305-576-1171 x.16.
