Mr. Jim Sanders,owner
Brownie Shotz,LLC

Dear Mr. Sanders:

I have seen your blogs on the Chocolate Life website and have read your daily post, like you I have begun my own blog on The Chocolate Life website called Megan's "Profiles in Chocolate".

Since Brownie Shotz is located in Oregon. I strongly believe that our company's Collectible Profiles “Profiles In Chocolate” TM line would be a perfect addition to your business. We believe that they will become a top seller in Portland!

The Collectible Profiles, Inc. mission is making American History come alive for others! Our company, has developed “Profiles In Chocolate” for Presidents Abraham Lincoln & John F. Kennedy to surprise and delight your Customers! Our detailed candy molds produce a beautiful chocolate 3-D sculpture of John F Kennedy’s or Abraham Lincoln's Profile (hair, cheekbones, beard, ect.) in a finely detailed 3-dimensional chocolate image.

We want to sell our Abraham Lincoln & John F. Kennedy “Profiles in Chocolate” TM candy molds and packaging to Brownie Shotz for your use in manufacturing these wonderful profiles for your customers!.

There is an increased public intrigue in all things that relate to Abraham Lincoln as it approaches the year 2009. The Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission, created by Congress in 2000, is charged with planning a fitting and proper celebration of Lincoln’s 200th birthday in the year 2009. for more info please visit

Brownie Shotz could promote the Lincoln Bicentennial with our unique Abraham Lincoln “Profiles In Chocolate”! The historical accuracy, beautifully detailed artwork, and the concept of the Lincoln Profile in Chocolate TM have been personally and enthusiastically approved by the leading Lincoln Historians: Harold Holzer –Co-chairman of the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission & Hon. Frank J. Williams –Member of the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission, Rhode Island Supreme Court Chief Justice

Seven Reasons Your Customers will buy Lincoln Profiles!

1. Mold profiles in your choice of chocolate-white chocolate, milk chocolate, or dark chocolate for display in your case! What an eye–catcher!

Suggested retail price of $5.99 each would mean more revenues for you and higher profits! Package the chocolate profiles in the Collectible Profiles Patriotic Gift CD Package for higher unit profits, suggested retail price of $9.99-$15.99 each.

2. Sell and/or cater to local museums, hotels, as a unique candy or dessert! Imagine a chocolate Lincoln Profile inserted in a scoop of vanilla ice cream! Or drizzling red, white and blue sauce on a plate –then placing a chocolate Lincoln in the center! For an elegant look place a chocolate Lincoln Profile on a gold foil doily!

3. The chocolate profile of Lincoln’s face is showcased in a new innovative packaging, a clear CD jewel case. You can add an insert that can be patriotic (red, white, Blue or the American flag.)

4. It’s great as a tourist souvenir—a mini-biography of Lincoln is featured on the back of the CD for a memento long after the chocolate is eaten and has been enjoyed. Refills could be sold.

5. This 4x4 size chocolate profile, ¼ thick inches is an irresistible impulse buy and its small and ideal size to take home in a briefcase/purse.

6. Get free advertising by showing your new product!

7. The packaging could promote Holidays and Special Occasions-such as July 4th or the Lincoln Bicentennial

Five ways to boost Your Sales with Lincoln Chocolate Profiles!

Your customers are seeking specialty products tied to Abraham Lincoln!
Your customers want something different! This fresh, new product –both the candy mold and the packaging!
Your customers want to give a gift that is only available in shops like yours!

The beautiful, detailed profile of Lincoln’s features is a museum quality sculpture in chocolate! People say” It’s almost too beautiful to eat”!

About Me:

Our President, Megan Hardgrave’s sense of purpose to share Lincoln’s legacy is strong. By age 10 she considered him to be a special man, even for today’s world. At age 15 she wrote a novella about a teenager caught up with Booth, Lincoln’s assassin, so that young people would find Lincoln’s story come alive!

She has collected 120 books and (growing), movies, and through the years has traveled to Springfield, IL and Washington D.C many times to visit Ford’s Theater, The White House, and The Library of Congress, ect… to further her deep & vast knowledge of Lincoln.

The inspiration for Collectible Profiles comes from her passion for Abraham Lincoln and wanting to honor his life and what his life and legacy means to her!

Please see our attached picture of Abraham Lincoln “Profile in Chocolate” for a detailed image.

I look forward to hearing from you and will be glad to talk with you about “Profiles in Chocolate” TM and send you more details upon request. You can contact us by e-mail or phone 972-395-3490.

What kind of research did you do to determine that people wanted a mold of a President? I am pretty surprised at the amount of work that you have put into this. I hear you saying that you are having a hard go at this. I don't think that this is a normal item that someone is going to wake up and say that they have to go out and get. I am wondering what I would do to market this item. I think it is restricted to a small segment that would want these. Can you help me out here? How did you determine that there was a demand for this item? If you could get a bust of President Obama, that would definitely sell, imho. It would be a real novelty item, and with his historic win, I bet lots of people will be offering this. Hum....I bet you could even get local coverage from the tv stations on what you are doing if you get his bust added to your collection. Now, is this a good way to tie in what you are doing to today's political climate? I think so, and I would bet my roaster it would be a hit.
