My Take on Chocolate Candles

This is a “why didn’t I think of this” type of product. I always lick the frosting off the candles, why not eat them too. I know my kids would’ve loved chocolate candles on their birthday cakes when they were growing up (they probably would now too). I will definitely get some of these for my next birthday celebration.

Do Sharks Like Chocolate?

This company has sales, is growing and has a unique product. This could result in a bidding war. Lori will like it as it appeals to everyone. Kevin will like it because of his “Something Wonderful” platform. Barbara will like it because it’s chocolate. So will Mark and Robert. I expect multiple offers on this one.
