Failed contrarian pitch of the week: Does Harry & David even need to exist? In this age of local/seasonal/sustainable/artisanal, who on the feverish planet needs a fancy box of wax rocks for three or four times what your friendly neighborhood Greenmarket gets for pears picked close to home? Let alone half a pound of cookies for $29.95? If the company had any sense, it would switch to candles in the shape of fruit. Stick a wick in it. It’s done.
