Manufacturer of the Week


Chocolate is good for finding those cavities

In a new posting, I’m going to try and highlight companies that employ american workers so we can help and support our economy. I just ask that you pass this along and buy one of these products to show support for the great job these companies are doing. I’ll try and keep it to affordable companies and avoid, let’s say, Boeing, unless you can afford buying that airplane, then e-mail me, there’s a blog I would like you to fund. Here’s some facts about the Hershey Company. Remember, buy a kit kat this week and pass the info on to the next guy. I’m not saying don’t buy Corona, but get an extra twizzlers.
