According to the Associated Content,( http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/5287... ) the Hershey Company has closed down and moved several candy making facilities in the United States and Canada to Mexico. The Hershey Company is the USA's leading candy maker. It is the candy we grew up with and love, and the name Hershey has long been synonymous with chocolate itself in America. Jolly Ranchers and Twizzlers are also made by the Hershey Company.

The work force in the candy manufacturing facilities in Lancaster County and Harrisburg, PA were reduced significantly. The plants in Reading, PA, Connecticut and California were shut down completely, as well as two in Canada.

I prefer Godiva chocolate, from Belgium. Pure decadence. Who says it's just for kids?

Say, have some chocolate after some tilapia!
"At Chen Qiang’s tilapia farm in Yangjiang city in China’s Guangdong province, which borders Hong Kong, Chen feeds fish partly with feces from hundreds of pigs and geese. That practice is dangerous for American consumers, says Michael Doyle, director of the University of Georgia’s Center for Food Safety.
“The manure the Chinese use to feed fish is frequently contaminated with microbes like salmonella,” says Doyle, who has studied foodborne diseases in China."

If you look at hard candy made in Brazil and argentina it.will have more sugar and molasses than corn syrup if any corn syrup at all. As much as I hate Obama can't blame the high cost of using sugar in the USA on him.
