Chocolate not tasting sweet lately

In response to the article, "Hershey plant will stop production Friday" (Jan. 31, Page A-1), I would like to ask the American consumer: Quiero Hershey?

Do you really want to go on buying the Great Mexican-American Chocolate Bar? Just wait until they get done screwing with the formulation to try to make milk chocolate without cocoa butter. It is a last-ditch effort to cheapen the product and lower the quality to make a buck. Mismanagement has cost the employees their dream of retirement and livelihood. Years of running the business like there was no tomorrow and no competition put Hershey in the place they are in today. Passing out big bonuses and large raises to top management has not helped. Ask yourself, how many managers or CEOs does it take to make a chocolate bar?
