My BIL really missed chips and salsa while he was deployed and it took a while before we hit on a shipping method that didnt deliver him a pile of crumbs :-). If you are shipping to ppl stationed in Afghanistan, etc I would think about the weather in transit there - hot weather = melted chocolate (and gummy bears).
My mom would make cookies for my uncle and cut them out with very very small cutters (she was like 7 lol) and he said they were the only ones that werent all broken up.
so I can
and DD can
No woman has ever shot a man while he was washing the dishes
