Dear Cadbury,

Every year my girlfriend tells me how good the the Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry is and how it’s a damn shame that they don’t have it in the US. Now, I think America is the greatest country in the world and if we don’t have it then it’s just not worth having. This leaves me in a quandary. Either the Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry is not as good as my girlfriend says or America isn’t as great as I think it is. Since I believe my girlfriend is fairly honest this leaves me doubting my country!

I thought about writing you last year to ask you to bring the Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry to the US, but I didn’t think about it until Christmas. I wanted to make sure you had more lead time to pull this off.

It’d probably sell well here. If you’ve looked around lately there’s an obesity epidemic. People love their high calorie foods in the US. I’d at least try it, and my girlfriend would get one, so there’s two sales right there!

Please bring the Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry to the US. Doing this will shore up my faltering Patriotism.


Sincerely,


Christopher L. Jorgensen

Scan of the letter from Kraft

Commentary:

This letter confuses me quite a bit, but I am lazy, so won’t look into it too much. I don’t know where I got the initial address from, but I am pretty sure I didn’t make it up.

How Kraft got a hold of it and why they decided to answer I’ll never know. This seems like the kind of letter you could safely let pass. “What the hell? We don’t have anything to do with Cadbury Chocolates. Throw this letter in the trash!” would be perfectly acceptable. They went above and beyond with this reply.

I don’t have time to try to bring the Cadbury Creme Egg McFlurry to the US this year (sorry). Maybe I’ll try again next year. Besides, I am told it’s an Easter thing.
