Corproate Chocolate...

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Hershey's (who purchased the company in 2005) is going to close their Scharfenberger Chocolate plant in the city...Their excuse to consolidate production is probably the wise, pragmatic chioce for a conglomerate given...you know, the economy and all. The story got me thinking, though, does that mean there is going to be this cool old chocolate factory sitting empty in the city by the bay? Perfect oportunity for some start-up artisan chocolate producer to take it to a whole other level...Gordon Terpening are you hearing me?! First Bisbee...next San Fran....what do you say?!

The town is spelled "Bisbee".

And Gordon's chocolates are very good.
