There is a small "l" on top of the strawberry...

The L is composed of the stem of the strawberry and a little bit of chocolate. If you look closely there is a – above the g, connecting it with the stem you get the L we are all looking for

I concur, if that's the most troubling thing in your day, you've got a pretty darn good life.

Here are some more fun explanations for the question where does "Googie" comes from.
Google writes "I just know that those with true romance and poetry in their soul will see the subtlety immediately" (googleblog.blogspot.com/2007/0 ...). How about some hidden references?

1. Barnabe Googe (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barnabe_ ...), an English poet whose most famous line is "I did but see her passing by, and yet I love her till I die.".

2. Debbie Googe, bassist in My Bloody Valentine (the rock band).

3. Sexual act originating in the Amazon rainforest. (more: urbandictionary.com/define.php ...)

I read it as Google because that's what I expected it to say, I didn't realise until it was posted on this blog :-)

Me too, but I would read everything there in Google's colors and Google-like shape as "Google". It could read "Gaeie", and I would read this "Google" ;)

I probably would as well.
The strangest thing that happened to me was when I was reading Philipp's book (55 ways) my brain automatically decided the word "Google" should have the Google colours even though it was in the some font as the rest of the book!

More like "virus" marketing (not "viral") since googe'ing can give you germs.

Isn't there some text which has the following line in it "L as in Love" and therefore, if the Heart of (Swiss?) Chocolate stands for Love you have your L in a symbolig/imagine way.

This was covered even by the biggest daily newspaper in Poland, "Gazeta Wyborcza":

Aww...

I wonder if I am the only one seeing it like that...

The chocolate is the g, and the (whole) strawberrie is the l.

Isn't valentine day about love, and what's love, if not being one with the person you do love...

Oh well, that's my "romantic and poetic" opinion. :x
