Last Friday, a package was placed on my desk. A coworker had sent me a holiday present from Harry and David. It turned out I really couldn’t eat any of it. Not for the dairy necessarily, but the sugar. Several months ago, a representative confirmed that they do use bone char sugar in some of their products, though they are willing to field queries about specific items.
My coworkers were perplexed, ‘You can’t eat any of it?’ they asked as they pilfered the boxes. The person doesn’t know I’m a fairly strict vegetarian, so I chose to look on the bright side and kept the boxes for organizing my home work space. It really is the thought that counts.
