WOW...what a rip off...all during my early gardening days we used to buy 50
pound burlap bags of Cocoa Bean Shells from local Sources around the Syracuse,
NY Area for $2 a bag!!  I'd guess that one 50 pound bag equaled about 3 of the
bags you are buying!!  That was when the NESTLE'S plant in Fulton was simply

price now even in Central, NY is closer NOW to what you are paying...Just
thought I'd share that as one of those REMEMBER WHEN STORIES....
