Died and Gone to Hershey

Hershey_factory It’s official… I have visited the “Sweetest Place on Earth” Hershey, PA. And yes… the air really does smell like chocolate. My favorite the “Hershey Outlets” a woman’s dream come true… chocolate and shopping.  But if you can believe it, I am actually burnt out on chocolate.  I will say I have always loved Pennsylvania, but I have a new favorite place in that great state. 

Chocolate_worldYou all have to visit the Hershey Lodge, where they actually great you with chocolate bars and hot chocolate (best I have ever had!).  Then you will need to head down to the town, where you’ll drive down Chocolate Ave and the street lights are actually Hershey Kisses.  You’re next stop will be Chocolate World… let’s just say it’s not the dentist’s favorite stop.  Do you know what  product’s are created by Hershey’s? They have more than just chocolate… Go to www.hersheys.com to find out more.  They actually sell candy at the factory that can’t be found in our stores.  And as Hall Davidson proved, the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are actually much fresher and even taste a bit different.

    Dear Jannita,

    Thank you for all the help and support this past weekend in Hershey. It WAS great fun to “hang with the gang” and I will see you at NECC!

    Kathy
