Christian Edwards can tell you the exact page in Sarah Palin’s book where she mentions his peanut butter meltaways.
As Palin’s deputy chief of staff, he stocked the candidate’s plane with chocolate from his family’s company, Edward Marc Chocolatier. “Knowing that Governor Palin felt better after a long day just by eating our chocolate was very rewarding,” says Edwards.
He and his sister, Dana Edwards Manatos (she’s married to Tom Manatos, an advisor to Nancy Pelosi), are fourth-generation chocolate makers who run the company from a chic townhouse in DC’s West End. Their brother Mark is the CFO and oversees manufacturing in Pittsburgh.
