Slice of Life: Chocolate Neighbors

So, what's the story with this picture?  We spotted this South Bend Chocolate Company truck leaving Chicago's own Blommer Chocolate factory (600 West Kinzie Street) in West Town.

South Bend Chocolate has its own factory in Indiana.  So maybe it was just one chocolate factory borrowing a ton of sugar from a neighbor the way you might bum a beer from the guy down the hall.

Check out the history section at Blommer's web site.  I don't think most people realize that Blommer has factories across the country.  More importantly, it has a machine that can pump 1,000 pounds of liquid chocolate per minute.  Just writing that triggered my drool reflex.
