Ring of this place is that it was made ​​using a clock that is no longer used.

Made in Kansas corner that I thought it was interesting and Na. Was a sensational among the bacon jam. I'm also cooking to enter the category of "manufacturing" indeed. And that somewhere salty person of taste to be worried about though sweet, is feeling like salt, salt caramel chocolate which became a staple fashion in Japan. Combinations that are not tied to this concept is wonderful.

"From what I will start to become a manufacturer" in the course, many people had listened seriously.

It was also true in SanMateo but the elderly to are impressed with visitors young and old alike just from families with children. It is reminded that instead of being limited to only certain people that there is a manufacturing, that everyone's such that there is interest.
