OJAI, Calif.—As Easter approaches, the 2022 Cadbury Bunny Tryouts is returning for its fourth year and is now open to the public to vote for this year’s winner.

The winner will be chosen from ten finalists: including a llama, pacific parrotlet, sugar glider, bearded dragon, hedgehog, and a miniature horse.

Among these ten finalists is a California local named Cali, a Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever with a pink nose, just like a bunny.

Cali is a sweet and smart girl who loves to wear holiday headbands and take pictures. She is from Ojai, California, a small city in Ventura County, northwest of Los Angeles.

Every year, since 2019, Cadbury searches for a beloved pet to fill in their iconic Cadbury Clucking Bunny Commercial. The winner gets stars in the commercial that screens across America and also brings back a $5,000 cash prize to their family.

Additionally, Cadbury is also donating $5,000 to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to support animals nationwide. For every 5,000 votes cast, they will donate an additional $5,000, up to $20,000.

The 2021 Cadbury Bunny winner is Betty, a treefrog from Florida who loves late-night snacks.
