” I made these last month.”
“Oh.” Pause. “Sooo….I suppose that means there aren’t any left?”
Sadly, if you’re asking the same question as you sit there drooling at your screen in your office right now, I regret to inform you that these bars are long (I mean long) gone.I brought them to a class film screening back in April and they were gone lickety-split.
