    I don’t think the make-your-own thingie existed when we visited Hershey. Now I want to go back!

    I’m so jealous!! Our kids have been in school since the 8th. We had all of 7 days with them. 😛 And Ohio- I love Ohio. I went to college in PA, and I want to be on your road trip. The end.

    p.s. Make-your-own-chocolate-bar sounds very very dangerous. It’s a good think Hershey is far away from here.

    Mmmm. Hershey, PA. We’ve been pondering that one and you have given me a good reason to visit. Not that I needed one.

    Enjoying this Jocelyn – can’t wait for the Smithsonian post. My goodness Paco and Allegra are growing up fast! I wish my husband had a t-shirt like Byron’s that said “Surley” (with the Brewing Company bit omitted). He has one that says “Does not play well with others”. It would team up well with that.

  6. It’s been fun to follow this on FB–now it’s cool to hear all the details.

  7. Definitely would have done the candy bar. Toffee bits, milk chocolate. Julie’s Delight.

    I can’t believe this trip is over already. You just left yesterday.

  8. I never made it to Hershey. I had a chance during a late-’60s bicycle tour of Amish country, but all I remember is we did go through Intercourse. But we were chased all the way.

    the history of the candy company is less interesting (to me) than the history of milton s. hershey himself and the very practical philanthropy he and his wife engaged in. the residential school they founded really has done tremendous things for kids who needed the hand up.

    oh and chocolate…my dentist confirmed it, in small doses the dark variety is actually good for your teeth because it helps prevent plaque formation. so do enjoy. i know i do!

    I learn so much on this blog of yours….didn’t know about pho, didn’t know that dark chocolate was good for teeth (yessss!) and hadn’t heard of Milton Hershey’s school. I knew a woman who worked at the Hershey plant, who was not overly happy there, but never visited/toured there. Maybe I could have made the newest candy sensation had I only had a chance. Sounds like a fun trip. Can’t wait to hear more.
