From Daily Mail:
A confectioner is getting a kick out of the New England Patriots' 'deflategate' scandal with an under-inflated football cast in chocolate.
Sarris Candies in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, will be auctioning the novel item of candy tomorrow via KDKA-AM radio, with proceeds going to charity.
The sweet treat appears with a big dent in the side and an accompanying sign informs customers: 'Net weight 13 lbs . . . Oops! We meant 11.2 lbs.'
It apparently took several attempts for chefs to fashion it into the perfect 'dodgy' shape.
The Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady have been accused of using under-inflated footballs in the AFC Championship game.
Bill Sarris, who owns Sarris Candies, has called his creation the Bradie ball.
That's misspelled B-R-A-D-I-E to avoid any legal issues.
Sarris won't explain how the chocolate got its deflated appearance.
He says only, 'You'll have to ask the Patriots how they did it.'
To date a photo of the Bradie ball posted on Facebook has garnered more than 700 'likes'.
It will go to the highest bidder on Friday.
For those who miss out, Sarris has a fully-inflated 6-once chocolate football for $12.95 among other sporting treats.
