‘Crash’ becomes first cat to win the Cadbury Bunny Tryouts contest

Winner of the fifth annual Cadbury Bunny Tryouts announced

Easter is less than two weeks away. That means it's time for a new Cadbury Bunny Tryout contestant. Last year, the winner of the Cadbury Bunny Tryouts contest was a goldendoodle from Ohio named Annie Rose. The photogenic therapy dog wowed the judges by wearing a pair of bunny ears and a set of rabbit teeth. This year, the Cadbury Bunny Tryout contest winner is a rescue cat named Crash.

In this article: Cadbury Creme Eggs (48-Pack), Cadbury Mini Eggs (Family Pack) and Cadbury Dairy Milk Bunny.

This year's winner: Crash the Cat

The winner of this year's Cadbury Bunny Tryouts contest is Crash the Cat. Crash is 8 years old and lives in Boise, Idaho. Crash is also a rescue that survived a traumatic car accident that broke its leg and jaw and caused it to lose an eye. Crash's outgoing personality made the cat a kind of celebrity at the Simply Cats shelter where Crash performed tricks for visitors. You can see Crash perform on TV in the new Cadbury Clucking Bunny commercial.

In a press release, Maddie Corey, Crash's owner, stated, "We are jumping with joy to hear Crash is the next Cadbury Bunny but not surprised as he is always the center of attention in any room. He's been through so much over the past few years and we appreciate the love his friends, family and cat enthusiasts across the country have shown."

The Cadbury Bunny Tryouts Hall of Fame

While Crash the Cat is the 2023 champion, there were four other award-winning animals that came before.

  • 2022: Annie Rose the Therapy Dog.
  • 2021: Betty the Frog.
  • 2020: Lieutenant Dan the Treeing Walker Coonhound.
  • 2019: Henri the English Bulldog

Cadbury's partnership with the ASPCA

Besides raising awareness for the Cadbury brand over the holiday season, the Cadbury Bunny Tryouts is a vehicle used to raise awareness and support the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. By spotlighting rescues, such as Crash, and donating $20,000, Cadbury is helping to make a positive impact on pets in need.
