Any idea of the date? (That looks like a two-pound box for $2.65!)

Either Danilova or Tallchief mentions in her memoir that before the new ballet season all the ballerinas would lose weight by going on a diet of chocolates. So Tallchief is not distorting the truth here.

I know it ran in the New York Times on Feb. 13, 1956.
