It was interesting. Ellery was almost overcome by the sweet smell of melting sugar, butter and chocolate. (She is my sweet lover!) The girls we also amazed to learn the dough is frozen for up to 6 months and the cookies for up to a year. They are beginning now to make their christmas cookies. I was most fascinated by the cyclical nature of their business. 9 months of the year they employ 27 people, from October to December 270+. Talk about about cash flow issues. No wonder they filed for bankruptcy 4 years ago. They are coming out now.
The children had a great time. I am grateful to the local homeschooling chapter for the great field trips they organize in our behalf.
