Chocolate Makes the World Go Around – At Least in Hershey, PA

Last weekend, we got to take our first family field trip in a long time. We rented a car so we could all go.

I wouldn’t mind living on Chocolate Avenue!

The streetlights are shaped like Hershey's Kisses!

No, we didn't buy it. But we were mighty tempted to!

Those exotic trees have some BIG leaves!
A Geometry lesson?

We had a great time! We took the free tour and found out how they make chocolate for Hershey’s chocolate. We read some things about Milton S. Hershey and were impressed with his philanthropy. He built a town for his employees and gave them public transportation, libraries, schools, a museum, a theater, a stadium and a hospital.

The town of Hershey is known as “The Sweetest Place on Earth”. We certainly had a sweet time there!

We brought home loads of chocolate and enjoyed it to the last bite. With all the chocolate lovers in this family, it didn’t last long. They try to act like I’m the only chocoholic, but I didn’t really eat that much of it. Honest!
