      by Earth Grains and in September became Sara Lee. Some 900 people work in
      the plant that covers more than 8 acres. Snack cakes, breads, and bagels
      are some of the products produced at the plant.

      Former schoolteacher Linda Fisher opened Chocodelphia to satisfy a sweet
      tooth. Her husband Earl had complained about not being able to find his
      favorite candy in any of the shops near their hometown of Prattville,
      Alabama. Fisher believed other people might feel the same way. So she went
      to work, looking for a location and scouting out great recipes. A mutual
      friend put her in touch with Margaret Horton, a former pecan farmer who
      had years of experience in the candy business. Before long, Chocodelphia
