Broken broken cheep cheep

Imagine the dismay at Travolution Towers this week when this tasty piece of Easter-driven promotional puff arrived in two pieces.


The fate of this chocolate extravanganza, we hope, does not signal something about the fortunes of its sender, Cheapflights - or Rooster, its PR agency.

We are reliably informed that the chocolate does, in fact, taste rather good. So all is not lost.

It *did* taste good. The only downside was discovering that the dye in the delicious chocolate treat turned my mouth blue. Three hours after scoffing, I've been wandering around with a blue gob. Sigh.

I believe it was purposely broken in two to make sure it was shared among the team at Travolution!

Ryan: you are too kind. but perhaps more chocolate would've been a better strategy??!?

Rosie said...

Share it!? Did you see the size of it? The only reason it took two bites to eat was because it was in two pieces ;-)

It was delicious though.

Ryan Haynes said...

Well I think you should be grateful you got one - neither did I get the opportunity to gnaw into that chocolate nor my gob to go blue...

Instead I'm green with envy!

Rosie said...

Chortle!

I am grateful Kev passed it on, but my gain was Kev's loss. Indeed, given that you haven't had any, it sounds like everyone feels a little left out. Perhaps we need some emergency packs of 'cheep' chocolate sent to TW Towers? Be sure to pop yourself on the distribution list too! ;-)

Last week the conversation was all about the difference between journalists and bloggers.

Now we know.

Journalists get chocolate sent to them. Bloggers don't.

Alex: Yeah, every day. Your average hack's post bag is stuffed full of chocolate.

Almost as much chocolate as rubbish press releases from PR agencies who don't understand Travolution. :-)

Rosie said...

You're breaking my heart now. But my waistline thanks you very much.

Rosie said...

Ooo ooo ooo, some more choccie arrived today. You've made my Easter week! Thank you so much Ryan and everyone at Cheapflights... blue gob here I come :-)

Now clearly this latest development will add further fuel to Alex Bainbridge's fire.

His latest missive about the objectivity of journalists can be found here.

I hasten to add that upon receipt of the new package, i donated the goodies to a sales person on Travolution and the fantastic web production team on travel weekly.
