Moose Munch Madness from those wonderful folks at Harry & David's

The Harry & David stores ran a donation drive for the troops again this year, and partnered with Soldiers' Angels to get the stuff delivered overseas. They set up a program at their stores to let customers buy their famous Moose Munch Candy Bars at a discount for the troops. I drove up yesterday and picked up 20 cases, totaling about 2,000 bars.

Here I am with Paul, the Deer Park store manager. Assistant Manager Laurie helped out too.

These clever folks figured out that:
a) everybody loves chocolate
b) soldiers in the desert love chocolate, and can't wait until October when it's cool enough to mail it to them.
c) Chocolate might melt when the temperature is, say 120 degrees
d) you can still eat melted chocolate with a spoon.

So they packaged up each candy bar with a spoon, and even had blank notes for the customers to write a message to go along with the candy bar they donated.

Brilliant! what more can I say. Now I just have to mail them, and get my garage back! Thanks to the staff and customers who showed how much they appreciate our troops.
