      When I saw the thread title, I had horrible images of some strange mixture of chocolate & MSM in my head. I am a real fresser when it comes to smoked meat, so I would be interested.

      However, a search of other threads found this:

      http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/549562

      And nobody followed up. With all the MSM talk on this board, I would imagine if Hershey's served more than standard Schnieders or (insert name of mega-meat processor here) MSM we'd know by now.

      For Ubervache, the location is

      Hershey's Family Restaurant and Bakery
      1943 Avenue Rd.

        If my recollection serves me correct, I believe the sign at Hershey's say they serve Lester smoked meat.

          Hmmm, I'll be in the vicinity today, maybe I should stop in and try it. If I do, I'll report back.

            I tried it was not impressed. $8.95 for a sandwich about half the size of Wolfie's, although Hershey's does come with a choice of fries (nothing special) or cole slaw. Worse, however, was the meat: It was extremely salty and oily. Wolfie's gets their MSM from Lesters, as Pizza Lover suggests Hershey's does, but these were nowhere near being the same.

              I can't see how a place that serves smoked meat can also serve Dim Sum?? You can't be everything to everybody. Has anyone tried there DS?

                Hmmm...

                Kreplach are, essentially dim sum. Why not dim sum filled with a knish or kishka filling?

                nah.
