I've been in this city for two years. Now that I'm just about ready to leave it, I finally figured out the secret to success in Seattle:
I bought some chocolate coins for a boy's birthday, and on the way home I was repeatedly stopped by people who were impressed by my chocolate coins in their shiny gold Kennedy-wrapper.
One lady even said she would "follow me forever". Others just told me how cool I was to buy chocolate coins, and begged me for one (a nice change from begging for real coins, and a much higher quality clientele).
The boy, of course, loved them.
So, there you go. Chocolate coins: the smartest candy money can buy.
