The other day I wanted some cottage cheese and pears. Something my Grandma always had in her refrigerator. A couple days go by, and I’m in the mood for the two items. I look at the pears to check the ingredient list. Looked good, until I saw the “Made in China” line. My pears came all the way from China. Don’t we have pears that are grown, and canned in the United States? I went online, and checked pear production. Yes, we grow lots of pears here in the good old USA. So next time I buy canned fruit I’ll have to check the country of origin before I bring it home. Support American Farmers when ever you can. When they are gone it will be to late.
With Halloween coming up insist that all your candy be produced by a Country that follows our strict food safety laws. Just my opinion. click here for Pear Information!
Hershey a American company that’s been in business forever. Mars a American chocolate company that’s been in business forever. Which one of the two products shown actually are made in America? You would think both of them but that is not the case. America’s chocolate Hershey has sent the York peppermint patty to Mexico. Why? Greed. Those wonderful little candy bars they make are also made in Mexico. Milton Hershey would be ashamed of his corporate boards decision to manufacture many of it’s products outside the United States of America. I called 1-800-468-1714 and voiced my concerns to Hershey. I really don’t think they cared. Give them a call and see what they tell you. Mars manufactures Dove made in America chocolate. It is my new favorite. Sorry Mr. Hershey. You lost my respect and my Business.
It is a product sold all over the United States and it is made in our own little town of Scranton. If you have ever driven to the National Bakery you are just a few blocks away from where this sweet treat is manufactured. There is a building on the corner of Sanderson Ave and Poplar Street that has the Topps logo on the front of it. That is where these little ring treats are produced. On a nice summer day when the plant has some windows airing open you can smell the pops for blocks. It is not a necessity to be a small child to eat a ring pop, but there must be a desire to have a lollypop type treat you can wear like jewelry. Cherry is my favorite! They also have a sugar free version too! So next time your in the mood for a lollypop try a Topps Ring Pop made in Scranton Pennsylvania!
