Truffle Squishing

Chocolatier resigns after "act of truffle-squishing" in a rival store. - Boing Boing

Barry Colenso, chocolatier to the Queen and Prince Charles, the man who created the first billboard made of chocolate, and who has been nicknamed "Willy Wonka" has resigned from his position at Thorntons' after being caught by a surveillance camera as he squished a rival company's candies

That's just so bizarre! And the kind of thing that makes me glad I don't have a retail store for my chocolates - no need for me to worry about random acts of truffle squishing!
