I guess my next favorite candy aside from M & M’s is chocolate coated toffee. As you can imagine I was disturbed to know that one of their key people croaked.
Heath Ledger is dead.
Mr. Ledger was the controller for Heath Candy Bars. But Mr. Ledger was more than a bean-counter. He also had great input into marketing. It was his idea to put a cardboard bottom in the wrapper to make the bars appear larger than they actually are.
He was an innovator in product design too. He originated the concept of putting two itty-bitty candy bars into the wrapper instead of one larger bar as is generally the practice.
As the price of toffee and chocolate changed, the ratio of chocolate to toffee could be adjusted based on which was cheaper.
Mr. Heath Ledger, my sweet tooth is off to you.

I welcome the opportunity to add the the ongoing health and well-being of Violent Acres and her readers. Just pick any old post and blather on about what’s bothering you. I’m a good listener.
