|Hello my tasty buddies!|
|Mr Hershey himself...|
|Pretty dapper in that hat!|
This week the kiddos learned about the founder Milton S. Hershey. He was an outside the box thinker who had clear goals. Unfortunately, his first two companies (after apprenticing with a candy maker in his teens) failed. The third time was a charm! Milton started making caramels (Lancaster Caramel Company) from milk in Lancaster, PA. This company ended up employing 1,400 people. Not bad right...! Then, after seeing the exhibit of a German chocolate making machine he decided to buy two, and had them shipped to his factory. He used his unique recipe for making chocolate from milk to add a chocolate coating to go over his caramels. This process was instrumental in making chocolate accessible to people of modest means and not just the wealthy.
|That cake looks dreany...!|
|Fave Hershey's product right now.|
|What a whirlwind!|
|I believe Baby Boy and the Hubster|
liked it too!
|Our view on the way in and out.|
After the tour we perused the store, Baby Boy picked up Sour Jolly Ranchers, and Baby Girl had ice cream. We had been there for a couple of hours and decided to head out. If you are an amusement park kind of family I recommend it...again, on a weekday so it would not be so crazy.
