Confessions of a Celebrity Freak Enabler

"I worked for a famous candyfreak: David Letterman. He had to have 2 Hershey bars (plain) before every show. These bars had to come straight from the factory in PA. He felt the bar only had a shelf life of 2 weeks so you couldn't buy them off the rack. Every week I had a new case shipped from Hershey's. I'd label the old from the new just in case he preferred last week's stash. The 2-week-old stash was fed to the interns. Also, did I mention that the bars had to be unwrapped for him and be fully intact—no cracks or breaks?"
