Three weeks were scheduled to complete the large chocolate creation for Nestle. Paul and the kids were going to fly to Wisconsin at the tail end of the project so that we could indulge in the festival then scoot to a cabin on a lake with friends for Memorial weekend. Alas, life reared up and interfered with those plans when my father was diagnosed with fourth stage pancreatic cancer. Thank goodness Paul agreed to assist me so that together (without much sleep) we accomplished the project in seven days. PHEW!
We used over 5000 miniature CRUNCH bars in the creation. Unfortunately the bars were individually wrapped since they were out-of-date product. I could venture to guess how many Nestle-work-force-people-hours were used to unwrap miniature CRUNCH bars but suffice to say simply ...ZILLIONS!
