Hershey is going to close down Scharffen Berger. But will keep the name. Now I regret always putting off taking the factory tour.

Scharffen Berger, you are dead to me. Charles Chocolates, hello!

Lunar New Year Gelato Flavors at Naia

Gelateria Naia, the narrow little gelato spot in downtown Berkeley (there's also a location on the UC Berkeley campus and ... wow, I just looked and there are a bunch of locations all over the Bay Area now) has some yummy sounding flavors in honor of the Lunar New Year. They are:

- Five spice gelato. The five spices being anise, cinnamon, cloves, fennel, and ginger.

- Pomelo sorbetto. Pomelos are, according to the announcement email, a traditional and auspicious citrus fruit for the Lunar New Year.
