agnès bunny

If you follow Paris Breakfasts, you will remember that Carol was on a Bunny Kick with a capital BK around Easter.

So when I saw this window, I immediately thought of her.

Okay, I admit, I immediately thought of Bunnicula.

But no, these bunnies are enjoying an orgy of FRAISES TAGADA.

Why? What did YOU think was staining that innocent white fur?

Spotted in the ultra chic window of agnès b. in Montparnasse.

French shop windows. Really nowhere else in the world have shop windows been raised to such a fascinating art.

  • If I was a little bunny.. I would do just the same! Fraises Tagada are hard to resist. Comment ça, les Français sont bizarres? 🙂 I have to say this is a strange window display!

  • Just lapin up some strawberry goodness! They look like my little Maltese dog when he had spaghetti…a neighbor came over all angry telling me my little dog killed his white rabbit and didn’t I see the blood on his fur? I had to prove my little doggie had spaghetti for lunch and didn’t really like lapins that much…

  • Bwaaahahaha! I immediately thought of the vicious beast in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I’m glad these bunnies hare having more innocent fun. I should probably find out what Fraises Tagada are…

  • Yeah, that was a bit frightening at first, but SOOOO adorable when I realized what was really going on. That is so my kind of candy too. And they aren’t chocolate! I’m so proud of you. 🙂

  • Thanks, Erin (run around Paris)! And thanks for stopping by. I hope your own writing is going well!

    In the post, I link to Paris Breakfasts’ post about Fraises Tagada a few months ago–a classic French candy. Not personally my favorite, but it’s got a passionate following.

    Isn’t that the weirdest window for a high-end fashion store you have ever seen? You know they created that whole double-take bloody-no-innocent bunny effect on purpose.

    Amy asked once what happened when I took some of these pictures. What happened this time was that all the sudden people started noticing what I was taking, and pretty soon there was a little crowd of people staring at this window.

  • Now see, that is just about the best window ever. That’s the sort of humor I can relate to.

    It is an awesome window, and thanks for the link to Paris Breakfast’s explanation of fraises tagada. But inquiring minds NOW want to know why a marshmallow candy is named after the sound of hoofbeats. Do French ponies eat marshmallows?

    I’m with alala on this one. My first thought was that the bunny from Monty Python had multiplied. Even knowing that they’re eating strawberry candy, it’s still pretty sinister.
