"Job Switching" A Way Of Life For Candy Makers

job switching
What is it really like to work in a chocolate factory? For workers at Morley Candy Makers Factory, it's more like "Job Switching" (episode #39 of "I Love Lucy") than we thought. The Detroit Free Press reports:

A better way to picture this factory is to think of that scene from the 1950s sitcom "I Love Lucy," when Lucy is working in the chocolate factory, gets behind and starts eating the chocolate off the conveyor belt.

For kicks, some of the workers at Morley staged a scene a couple of years ago like the "Lucy" one and took a photo that is for sale in the store.

If you don't know about Lucy, just imagine tens of thousands of tiny bunnies rolling off the line. Just don't expect to find any Oompa-Loompas.

Morley Candy Makers Factory is the largest Easter candy producer in Michigan. Group tours can be arranged by calling 1-800-682-2760. A self guided walking tour is available too. Sounds yummy to me.
