Hershey's bought out Scharffen Berger! Ugh!

Alas, it is true: Hershey's couldn't keep it's grimey paws to itself; it seems that Hershey's has acquired the Berkeley-based premium chocolate maker Scharffen Berger for an undisclosed sum. All I can say to this is "Ugh!" I can't believe they sold out. That "undisclosed sum" must have been awfully persuasive.

I hope the quality trickles up to Hershey's, rather than Hershey's corrupting Scharffen Berger; Scharffen Berger's lightest chocolate has a higher cacao percentage than Hershey's darkest. Scharffen Berger was in a different league altogether; I still can't believe they sold out.
