Default Re: Funny name on the wrapper...

Dear Glenn,

Thank you for ASKing about My Kids.

My Son, Mikey, Likes it.
My daughter, on the other hand, didn't really
enjoy it like I would have expected Her to...

Funny thing on trying to offer other people
to try it, one person actually said,
"I won't eat ANYTHING that I can't spell or pronounce!"

She saw the chocolate square and didn't know how to
say the name on the chocolate wrapper.

She is in the minority if she dislikes chocolate.

Part of selling is not taking it personally when prospects say, "NO."

a - An affluent prospect in FL asked for a F-r-e-e sample. Then said it was too expensive. Keeps sending me links to Cheap, sugar candy chocolate.

b - Another lady sent me a 200.00 gift - after I sent her a chocolate sample. Said she loved it. Never bought more. I'm scratching my head on this one.

c - A woman ate up samples from me for 2 weeks. Said her blood pressure dropped 40 points. But then she claimed she couldn't afford to order any chocolate. Doctors visits alone are costing her many times what she'd spend.

Oh well. Can't please them all.

I've been tipping waitresses with Chocolate too.

I was startled - at 1st when A dozen women said, "I hate chocolate." But they saved me from throwing away my samples. So I say, "Thanks for telling me. I won't give you any."

You should see their faces when the gals around them pipe up and say, "I LIKE Chocolate!" And I give it to them instead.

Since THIS stuff tastes like Godiva level chocolate.

Yet has no refined sugar or milk in it.

All I'm doing is finding Choco-holics - and switching them to something HEALTHY they can eat and not get fat from.

So those who say, "NO" save me time & chocolate samples.

Like your wife.

Don't waste any of the chocolate I sent you on her, OK?


P.S. - What did your kids think of the Chocolate samples I sent you?
