I was absolutely positive that they had a new person penning the quotes. I used to love opening a Dove chocolate and reading the quote on the foil wrapper. When I was teaching, I kept my favorite foil quotes on a bulletin board near my desk. When I retired, I put them into a little photo binder.
However, for quite a few years, each time I purchased Dove chocolate and eagerly unwrapped the foil wrapper, the words failed to resonate or touch me or delight me like they used to. And so I quit buying Dove Dark Chocolates since they weren't delivering words that lifted me, only words that disappointed me. The chocolate was still good, but I yearned for the soul satisfying words that left me filled with chocolate and sweet words.
I remained disconsolate until a couple of weeks ago. I was in Target after Halloween and picked up some florescent M&Ms and a package of Dove Dark Chocolates shaped like pumpkins at rock-bottom, after-Halloween, sale prices!
Here's the first quote from my package of pumpkin Dove Dark Chocolates.
"It's time for bright leaves, bonfires, and blankets."
Almost perfect, but I would have to add books to the litany: "It's time for bright leaves, bonfires, blankets, and books." I loved it! Maybe it's because I adore fall that I continued to find quotes I loved on the foil wrappers of my daily Dove Dark Chocolate.
- Never be too old for jumping in leaves.
- Chocolate is a fall color.
- Prefer piles of chocolate or piles of leaves?
- This isn't a foil. It's a costume.
- Relax for a "spell."
- For now, falling leaves. Soon, falling snow.
true that I may be re-addicted to Dove Dark Chocolates . . . all because
of after-Halloween, rock-bottom sale prices (and I suspect, a new quote
writer). Way to go, Dove!
