A couple of months ago, one of our regular transatlantic customers paid for a large order of our dark chocolate coated candied gingers. I am proud to say that they are now traveling with her in space. Apparently food tastes less in zero gravity so the intense ginger and chocolate combination seem to be a favourite with her and the rest of the crew. How cool is that?

Cool? That's amazing and I thought astronauts would have eaten Mars bars. Julie Payette is your customer, I presume.I read somewhere that payload costs for the Space shuttle work out at about US$20,000/pound. If that's correct they are very expensive chocolates!!!
Congratulations.

Yeah, that's pretty neat. Maybe you should make her a special batch of high flavour chocolates for the next trip (you could add a few extra drops of mint oil maybe)
