Here are  the goodies sent by the German chocolatier.

The eggs are real eggshells, filled by a magical sanitary process with chocolate praline truffle.

The white ones can be stamped with a logo — in fact, one has the Starbucks logo, though you can’t see it.

Then there are also the highly realistic pebbles and seashells. The company can do custom labels for these, with logos or “Boston Seashells” or stuff like that.

The quality of the chocolate is very high.

The chocolatier is seeing these as great choices for promotional items, souvenirs, etc. with custom labels. I think they’d be charming wedding favors, too.

As you can see, I have a very tough job here.

I”m taking the box up to the computer guy for a photo shoot, and then I guess I need to determine the best use of the samples for market research or something.

We certainly needed to see and taste them, but I don’t know that The Computer Guy and I really need to eat all of this in order to make a great website.

I am supposed to watch his response, though, and report back to the client on whether he showed sufficient enthusiasm for the product.

The client is concerned about this.
