What's the Mystery Here?
There's a major announcement at the offices of exclusive chocolate maker, Fountain Chocolate.
Middle-aged playboy S. Herbert Fountain runs the company, though he would rather not.
Swiss chocolatier Pierre Dropse is passionate about his craft
The ambitions Toby LeRone is Pierre's assistant
Jelly Beans is Herbert's long-suffering assistant
Herbert has a new squeeze in the form of Dolly Mixtures who likes the finer things in life
Parma Violet is the company's head of tasting.
Then there's the down-to-earth shop steward, Cherry Pips
