Chocolate World

by Rosemary
On our way fron Philadelphia to Gettysburg (October 2017), we stopped at Hershey, Pennsylvania.

Milton Hershey founded the town in 1903 for the employees of his chocolate empire, planning it as "a perfect American town in a bucolic natural setting, where healthy, right-living, and well-paid workers lived in safe, happy homes." The homes were very modern, with electricity and indoor plumbing, and the town provided public transportation and free education.

We headed straight to Hershey's Chocolate World, the factory store, where we were overwhelmed by all the varieties of chocolate products. They sell syrup by the gallon!

We enjoyed the ride through a virtual tour of the company's history and factory.

All in all, this was a delicious afternoon. In my diary, I wrote, "It smells terrific here."
