An Open Letter to Scharffen Berger Chocolates - I'm sorry

Dear Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker Staff,

I'm sorry.

I only meant it as a joke. When I saw it at the Dad's Follies booth at the DC Big Flea Market last week, the story came to me immediately - about how I'd found a very old, well preserved chocolate bar at an auction, and my fellow chocolate friends and I should give it a try. The mold, of course, would be filled with Scharffen Berger 70% Bittersweet. They would be blown away. The old style lettering, from the 1920s or so, would keep them guessing for hours, wondering if it could actually be true (except the couple of folks who know your stuff so well, they would see through my ruse immediately).

But I fear that I must have disturbed the cosmic balance somehow, because we all know what happened next. My story, my joke, has turned out to be true.

And I'm very, very sorry.
