Do I Smell Chocolate?

by in View All Posts, January 15th, 2009

So if there is indeed a Chicago vs. New York trend, what about sweet smells in the air? Having recently visited the Windy City, best known for its deep-dish pizza and well-dressed hotdogs, I discovered that the downtown area smells less like meat and more like Hershey, Pennsylvania. Upon some cursory research, I found that the scent is from the Blommer Chocolate Factory on the west side of the city, which came under some fire for it a few years back.

Air pollution aside, New York did have the scent of maple syrup wafting through the air for a short period of time. It made me think of French toast and waffles all day long. I don’t know which one is better though. Which do you prefer: chocolate or maple syrup? Or do you know of a better-smelling city?
