Everyone has a reason as to why they like chocolate or vanilla; it’s simply a personal choice. For me it goes beyond choice, it comes straight from the factory…literally. My step dad is from Pennsylvania and every summer, until I was about fifteen, we would pack the car and set off on our vacation towards the New England states…mostly Pennsylvania. We would always stop at Gettysburg and Philadelphia, but most memorably we would stop at Hershey.
They had a tram inside that would take you on a small tour of where their chocolate comes from, how they make it, and where the name Hershey kiss comes from, and where the name Hershey came from, and other Hershey details. At the end of the tour we would get a free piece of chocolate candy, then walk around the gift shop; my sisters and I would get our own candy bar.
On one occasion my mother and I got to sample the new strawberry ice cream syrup before it was put out on the market. Of course her and I were huge fans of strawberries said we would love to sample it. We were to tell them if we like it and if we didn’t, and what we liked about it and what we didn’t like about it.
The street lamps of Hershey, Pennsylvania are Hershey kisses. And if you drive to the factory and slowly drive by, roll your windows down and take a huge whiff, you would literally smell chocolate…I’m not kidding!! My family and I have done this many times!
