Save Jacques Kiss

Food is important too me. So is the freedom to create. I have an equally powerfully (although totally negative) reaction to frivolous lawsuits. Hershey's Chocolate Foods Company is suing brilliant independent chocolatier Jacques Torres over the name of a truffle called Champagne Kiss.

Apparently the people at Hershey's think the rest of the population is dimwitted enough to believe that a handcrafted, Champagne infused bon bon is in some way related to or representative of their mass produced polyglycerol polyricinoleate infused mechanically squirted product. Possibly they fear that if we are lucky enough to consume a Champagne Kiss truffle, we will be justifiably dissapointed by the common-or-garden Hershey's Kiss.


I think they are being foolish and frivolous, and I urge you to join me in supporting the Save Jacques Kiss campaign. Click here to sign the petition.
