Stopped by Whole Foods today and gone from the shelves were the big bars of bittersweet Scharffen Berger chocolate.

Long story short, Hershey, which has owned Scharffen Berger since 2005, was accused of dubious sourcing and poor child labor practices.

Hooray for Whole Foods.

    Good riddence, I don't like their chocolate anyway.
