Chocolate is once again flowing at the former Hershey factory. But this time, there’s an extra ingredient that’s expected to be added: cannabis.
Almonte chocolate makers, Erica and Drew Gilmour, owners of Hummingbird Chocolate, are in the factory bringing their high-quality confections into the world of cannabis in a partnership with Tweed – something first announced last summer. It’s a match that’s brining the nostalgia and heritage of chocolate back to Smiths Falls.
“We’ll be making Hummingbird quality chocolate here,” said Erica, in a presentation at the Lanark County Tourism Association’s annual general meeting. “It’s been really exciting times. It’s a whole new world.”
Erica said Hummingbird enthusiastically jumped on board when approached by Tweed.
