Chocolate To Troops

By Wyatt Earp | October 22, 2010

CJ at A Soldier’s Perspective is up to his old tricks again. You know, serving our country with honor, getting kittens out of trees, and doing all-around good deeds. This time, he is helping a local school with a candy fundraiser, but instead of selling them to the Average Joe and Joanne, he is accepting pledges to send them to our troops in Iraq.

All you do is buy a few bars – they’re $1 each – and he will do the rest:

Okay, so a local school just ended one of those fundraisers where they sell those delicious “World’s Finest Chocolate” bars for a buck. They have the $3 off coupon to Pizza Hut on the wrapper and the money helps the school system.

Well, the fund-raising coordinator contacted me saying they have a few hundred bars left over and the drive has ended. I asked him if I could try and sell them through this site and then send them all to the troops. So, that’s what we’re gonna do. My daughter is no longer in Girl Scouts, so my Girl Scouts to Cav Scouts needs a revamping. With the cooler weather coming up, now is the perfect time to send chocolate and not worry about it melting on the way there.

If you’d like to send some World’s Finest Chocolate bars to Iraq (where combat operations have supposedly ended) there are a few ways you can donate. I will take care of all the logistics.

Chocolate for the troops. Is there a better way to say thank you for all they do for us? If you would like to help out, click this link or click the top link and scroll down for all of the information. Hurry, you want to get them before this guy . . .

    I have my period and you post about chocolate and I have no money to go to the store for chocolate and my emergency stash is gone. You’re mean!

    I’ll buy chocolate for the troops, but you have to buy me green and blacks organic chocolate with toffee.

    Kim – Sounds like some tree-huggin’ hippie crap.

    Kim – Sorry, not my fault!

    :p I will have you know that chocolate is delicious melt-in-your-mouth goodness that coats your taste buds and makes your skin tingle with all its goodness. And that’s just the first bite.

    These chocolate bars are not to be eaten, but to be experienced and enjoyed. Hershey’s are for eating. These are for living.

    Kim – I LOOOOOOOOOOVE Hershey’s! But this sounds pretty good, too.

    Hey, maybe Chrissy matthews had some when he saw Obama speak? It would explain the tingle.

    “World’s Finest Chocolate” is still around? Muhgawd, I used to sell that in grade school, back when dirt was $.05 a pound and snakes wore shoes.
