Can Peanut Butter Cups Save Lives?
This story comes courtesy of one of our retailers in North Creek. Normally Laurie sells Barkeater Chocolates' gourmet truffles in numerous assortments, which are fabulous for gifts and souvenirs. I offered Laurie some of our gourmet Grown-Up Peanut Butter Cups to sample, knowing that they would sell quickly in small packages when visitors just want a little pick-me-up while they're vacationing.
Laurie took the package of four cups back to her store and ate one. Then another (because who can stop at just one?). She offered one to her employee and was about to start on the last cup when a woman shopping at her store suddenly became faint. Laurie and her staff immediately sat the shopper down in an Adirondack` chair and grabbed her a cup of water. The woman was still dizzy and unable to get up. Laurie, realizing she still had one peanut butter cup left, asked the woman if she thought it would help. The shopper weakly nodded.
One bite. Two bites. Three bites later and the color began to return to the weary shopper's face. Four bites and another sip of water was all the faint woman needed to regain her strength and resume her visit.
The conclusion? While Barkeater Chocolates' gourmet Grown-Up Peanut Butter Cups may not technically be medicinal in nature, they helped restore this woman's energy on a hot summer day. While more studies are needed, we have compelling evidence that our chocolate makes people very, very happy.
