Tourists marvel at it, but Chicagoans just smile. In the north Loop area sometimes when the wind is blowing just right, the air is filled with the delicious, delightful aroma of chocolate. It’s not magic, it’s simply Blommer Chocolate Company cranking up its production line and brightening everyone’s mood.
Illinois Science Council partnered with the Notebaert Nature Museum to offer a unique workshop on the Chemistry of Chocolate led by Dr. Shelby Hatch, chemistry faculty at Northwestern University, along with the Melissa Tisoncik, R&D Specialist with Blommer Chocolate Company.
