Has Ad Astra ever considered getting custom chocolates made for use with demos? After all, the pickup line is "hey, you wanna blow up some chocolates?"

I'd think the ideal chocolate would be hexagonal (sized to fit neatly in one mapboard hex), flat top and bottom, with the company logo on top.

A five-minute web search reveals that custom molds are on the order of $100; custom chocolates would seem to be less than $0.50 each in a reasonable quantity.

If Ad Astra isn't interested in doing this itself, would it be willing to allow its logo to be used in this manner by individuals doing demos?

That does sound like a cool idea. I've always used Reisen's, though.

"And now you may be wondering: why this particular brand of chocolate? Well, Cadet, if I only get one thing through to you, it should be this: Never, ever, discharge your weapons without a reason."

I've also used the line of:

"And you can see, from the dark chocolates, that we believe in offering a rich target environment."
