choco-bye

SF Gate reported this morning that local chocolatier, Joseph Schmidt, will no longer be selling their famous confections after Easter this year.  A very sad announcement, indeed.

I first met Mr. Schmidt ten years ago when he won a Best of the Bay award from the San Francisco Bay Guardian.  I was the Promotions Manager at the time so was able to phone and tell him myself, and he was so ecstatic, he brought at least a dozen huge boxes  of those delectable nipple shaped truffles to the Guardian office as a thank you.  He was not only gracious, but charming, kindly, and gentle – just as you would imagine a European chocolatier to be.

We will definitely miss your chocolates, Mr. Schmidt.
