Callsign of the day

Callsign "Candyman"

While in Berlin for a tactics team conference, we visited a strip club called Mon Cheri, named after the chocolate-covered cherry candy. A stripper hid a piece of the candy in a special place, which someone had to find without using hands. I was coerced to find the candy or be without a callsign for the next three months.
