I get letters, and some of them just have to be passed along to my fellow chocolate
I am a huge fan of your blog and I wanted to reach out to you to tell you about this
really cool new chocolate community. This community works within a leading
chocolate company, currently developing some really innovative new concepts around

awesome contributor to The ChocoSphere-- I love your chocolate reviews! Your ideas

So I received this email from one of my super fans, who shall remain last
nameless, it seems. Out of curiosity I wanted to inquire as to what business it
was that would ask of my chocolate consultancy free of charge, and just
generally whose chocolate I would imbibe. After all, my mom always taught me
never to accept candy from strangers. Ashley was so friendly, and she sure
knows how to flatter a person, flattered the pants right off.
So my pants on the ground, and my curiosity thus piqued, and knowing that
Ashley did say she would be happy to answer any questions I might have, I sent
her just one simple question before I was ready to sign my life away.
But her reply was also a rebuff, and quickly revealed that poor Ashley was
suffering from amnesia all about our new BFF status, and about who, in fact,
I even was.
Unfortunately I can't tell you the name of the company, but it is a leading
chocolate brand and we'd love to invite you into the community! Please confirm your
occupation and I can send you over a link to join the community.

Now we do know something about Ashley, even though we may not know
her last name, or the name of her company. But other than that she is a great
flatterer and very passionate, we may only know this: She will vary the amount
of tildes and slashes bordering the chocolate passionista slogan, depending on
her mood and/or degree of amnesia.
Now the only other place I've really seen the phrase "chocolate passionistas"
about the web was here, in this "community for chocolate passionistas,"
brought to you by Dove Chocolate. Won't some kind soul direct Ashley there, so
that she can recover some of her memory?
