On Thursday afternoon Bespoke Chocolates announced the winner of its Design Your Own Signature Chocolate Contest. In the biggest upset since the "wide right" debacle (you don't have to be from Buffalo to understand the crushing defeat the Bills endured in Super Bowl XXV), the Ballpark Bonbon was beaten by the Lavender Honey Caramel Fleur de Sel Bonbon. I thought of pulling an Al Gore and demanding a recount, but I imagine a recount would be just as fruitful for me as it was for Al. While the two friends that voted in last night's competition wholeheartedly disagree, there is no denying the deliciousness of the winning bonbon.
