Whore!


Yup! I am a whore for chocolate!


Remember a while back I posted that Nestle was pimping out free chocolate? Well, I was wrong and I was right...

Turns out their attempt at guerilla marketing flopped when they had an overwhelming response...

um..duh...

Starbucks recently has a similar snafu - somehow the powers that be over at the coffee giant were so naive that they figured that people would be honest?!

Well Nestle just wasn't ready for all the people who would be clicking away for free chocolate...and they want to kiss up and play nice. They promise to honor their free chocolate coupons - kinda. Hey, if I get one bag of free chocolate, I will consider myself ahead of the game.

So when their new product hits the shelves - give it a try...

and if you wanna read some really cranky posts - sign up for their marketing team and read the forum...boy howdy! they are madder than wet hens....

Rosie--you're my favorite whore, or chocolate whore, or cranky whore, or whore for chocolate, or kindred soul, I think that means.

From one whore to another! :) I feel lightheaded after looking at all that chocolate so early in the morning!
