Other than being a large, mainstream company, what is wrong with Hershey's?

thank you. i did not know that. Good things to know, although I haven't bought any of their stuff in ages, it will influence potential purchases.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooo

I don't care his reasons. Sounds like a bunch of between the lines jargin. I don't trust big co's.... next we will see things like 'natural' flavors, vanillin and other crap to slide right in to the bars and be sold at walmart and target. Big co's have no integrity whatsoever.

Great, now what chocolates can I buy? equal exchange is still good right?
