A sad day in chocolate land

I didn’t want this to be true, but the internet says it’s true. Also, friends at Sharffen Berger have confirmed that Hershey, who bought Sharffen Berger a few years ago, will be closing their Berkeley plant this year. They’ll continue to make Sharffen Berger chocolate and Joseph Schmidt truffles, just not on the west coast. 

Boo.

  1. That’s shocking! Just a couple years ago, I got the impression SB was riding high. I thought they were doing lots of innovative stuff at the plant (which they must have invested lots of money in!). Too bad.
