  • Heading into the west loop and can't figure out where that Chocolate smell is coming from? This is the factory you're looking for. Every time I've had to commute I didn't know I was passing this factory, and now that I've entered it, I'm glad to know that they sell their products directly to consumers as well. I bought the sugar-free Chocolate the other day, which has Maltitol. Works well with my preference, up until I realized that it's a lot like a laxative. Still, there's a wide arrangement of Chocolate/non-chocolate options once you head to the door on the right from the reception desk at the Kinzie / Desplaines Entrance.
  • TRUCKERS! Delivery to here with 53 Ft dry van with a sleeper semi. North I-90/94 to Exit 50B East Ohio St. Right turn on Orleans St.(Super tight turn do it from the middle of 2nd and 3rd lane) Right on Grand Ave ([Wide turn] now going West) Left on Desplaines St. Under the two 13-6 bridges and arrive to docks. Check in door is inside the docks between door 7 and 6. To back in to the docks you need to make sure you set up correctly on the 1st try as you will block 5 lines as traffic is frequent and four wheelers in a rush.
