bunny love

my favorite part of easter growing up was the little chocolate bunny tucked into my easter basket . . . although i always felt a bit guilty when it came time to say goodbye to its sweet little face. happily, no such dilemma presents itself with toast's newest creation - the delightful cotton tail which features a custom printed handkerchief that has been magically coaxed into a bunny shape with perfectly placed twists and ties.

hidden inside the bunny's belly are a mix of chocolate confections in the form of kit-kats, mini cadbury eggs and reese's pieces (yum!). as an added bonus, once your sweet tooth is satisfied the hanky remains as a cheerful reminder of your little buddy.

toast's charming cotton tails are available in three hues of bunny pink and can be ordered in the online shop or scooped up at toast's studio:

p.s. toast recently debuted an in-store mini pop bar where you can mix and match sweet and savory bottles and scoop up preprinted labels whenever you require just a handful of favor fun.


and the winner is . . .

candy land

our friends from toast have just added sweet little lollipops to their repertoire just in time for valentine's day! while many of us may have outgrown bestowing paper valentines upon our childhood chums, the charming fabric wraps are sure to brighten the day of your favorite sidekicks.

each lovely lollie is filled with a mix of fruit flavored jelly candies (strawberry, raspberry and cherry) and are priced at $4 a pop. if you really want to delight someone, be sure to take a peek at the super adorable lollie bouquet ($25) which features six candy treats wrapped in a handkerchief that doubles as a leaf.

lovely lollies are now available to order in toast's online shop or can be scooped up at their kaimuki studio:
