The original Heart Beet shape returns! Officially known as Beet and Mint, this deep red Bunny Biscotti was originally named Heart Beet and came in a heart shape. We will be returning to this shape for this flavor for the sole reason that it is darn cute to watch a bunny runs away with a heart in its mouth.
Bunfectionary will be at Bunny-Palooza again this year in Hillsboro, OR. Rabbit Advocates has put together its second festival of the bunnies at the same location outside of Portland, OR.
Saturday, November 5, 2016
10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Washington County Fairgrounds
802 NE 28th Avenue
Hillsboro, OR 97124
We will have all the favorite Bunny Biscotti flavors: Carrot & Fennel, Carrot & Raisin, Banana, Floral Bouquet, Pineapple & Mint, Beet & Mint, and our four berry and apple flavors: Strawberry & Mint, Blackberry & Mint, Cranberry & Mint, and Blueberry & Mint. We also will have double the number of the popular Variety Boxes that we had last year.
You can read a bit more about Bunfectionary in the Rabbit Advocates’ Spring 2016 newsletter.
Be sure to introduce yourself!
Bunfectionary introduced new packaging for Bunny Biscotti last year at the Midwest Bunfest. The new packaging comprises an outer layer of richly-textured green rice paper, a PET layer, a LLDPE layer, a ziplock closure and tear notch, and a horizontal window so that customers can see the product before purchase. The package also has a gusset that allows it to stand up, and a hold can be punched above the heat seal line for hanging.
The rice paper helps protect the colors of the fruits and herbs from UV fading and discoloration, as well giving the pouch a unique texture and appearance.
Each package is heat sealed for fresh, long-lasting flavor and safety, and carries a Guaranteed Analysis Label.
Here is how we have changed over the past years.
I have the feeling that Tilbert is waiting for his midnight snack at noon. They have gotten used to getting a snack on the former night stand (now the Raisin Altar). And the past two weeks he has been ravenous, devouring his greens and dancing around my feet for his pellets (when he is not simply camped by his pellet bowl). Both bunnies have a healthy appetite for hay, but they haven’t been as interested in that as veggies. Side note: Mom came up and saw the gold-rimmed bowl full of greens, and exclaimed, “Are you using your grandmother’s Lenox bowl to feed your bunnies?!”
Maddie proves that bunnies like to keep a clean house. Her owner asked us to bunnysit for a few days. He had thought a litterbox would be too hard for her to enter with only three legs, so she never got a proper box. But she proved us wrong and took to using it in less than a day. We used techniques that we learned from Kicked, Bitten and Scratched to change her habit of peeing in the left corner and pooping in the center of her xpen. We placed the letterbox in that left corner, moved the xpen so it blocked access to the side of the letterbox, and placed hay, pellets and veggies into the box so she associated it with good things. We also placed the veggie bowl on cup to raise it a bit as she seemed to back onto the plate and do her business there.
The Rabbit of Caerbannog has spoken, and requested a few regal changes to his own Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch:
We added braided wheatgrass, crossed it as on the original Hand Grenade, and removed the packet of bits that made such a mess.
We also made it available to retailers since we couldn’t get our butt into gear to sell online ourselves. Check out Bunny Bytes Saturday, September 1.
Fennel is back!
Did you know that the word fennel comes from the Latin word feniculum or foeniculum, meaning “little hay”? Is it any wonder that bunnies go crazy for it? Fennel can be incredibly sweet as well, especially Sweet Florence Fennel, often found in markets. Flavors range from the ubiquitous licorice or anise with lovely undertones of citrus such as lemon, orange, and tangerine.
Although it is known for stimulating appetite, from ancient time it has been known to help flatulence as found in this Latin phrase “semen foeniculi pellit spiracula culi,” which literally means “the fennel seeds make blow the arsehole” (or at least says Wikipedia).
All parts of the fennel plant are edible, from the big white root bulb to the stalk, fronds, seeds and its highly-sought pollen. Bunfectionary’s tasting team love the sweet anise flavor of the fronds with a light lemony undertone, and the stalks make tasty chew toys.
Introducing our new gift box of Bunny Biscotti Banana Macarons. Each sliding box opens to reveal a dozen colorful macarons, dyed with our own fruit and vegetable pulp dyes. These are a perfect gift for not just that special bunny or Guinea pig, but for special people with bunnies in their lives. They also would make an exceptional host/ess gift for a bunny lover. Bring these instead of that flabby chardonnay, and be the hit of the party!
These will be available August 1, directly from Bunfectionary.
