Hershey’s Trip Part 2

Last week, I posted about my first day in Hershey, PA. Today I’ll cover the majority of the second day of the amazing trip sponsored by Hershey’s.

For our second day at Hershey’s, we got to take in the sites throughout the city. We got to go to the Hershey’s Story . The museum provided a glimpse into the life of Milton Hershey and the story of the city of Hershey.

Gotta love hanging out with other bloggers! Everyone had their camera at the ready.

After the museum, we went to the Chocolate Lab. While we were there, we got to learn all about how chocolate is made. I didn’t take notes (sorry). After we learned how chocolate is made, we got to make our own little chocolates, which I also didn’t take a picture of… Bad blogger!

Next up was a Chocolate Tasting. We tried warm liquid chocolates from various countries. It was fun to try to identify the flavors that we were tasting in the chocolate. One of them tasted almost like caramel!

And last but not least, we had an amazing chocolate infused lunch at The Forebay. Everything from our soup to the martini had chocolate in it. Lunch was absolutely amazing and chocolatey. By the end of the meal, I couldn’t even eat dessert. I know, sounds crazy right, but I could only manage one bite of the rich chocolate cake they gave us.

That wraps up this week’s recap of my Hershey’s trip. Next week, I’ll cover the cookies that we baked and the cookie swap we had at the Milton Hershey School.

    You did a great job! This was a thing very well done . We lived in Europe for a couple of years and took many week long trips all around the continent. We also found that one small bag(we used duffels) were the way to go. Never lost luggage, never missed a connecting flight, never had to lug heavy bags all over the place. We found that we could manage very well with less than was originally thought. In fact, I discovered that i really loved having less alltogether! (We lived in Limburg and Moravia; traveled to Poland, Croatia, Greece, Italy, France, England, and Belgium. Brugge is my favorite! Although I must say, I loved every speck of Italy, too!)

    You did great! I also love Rick Steves’ packing cubes for a long trip. I fit everything I needed for 2 weeks in Europe in February in one cube, freeing up half my suitcase. And I’m a size 14-16 so it wasn’t just x-s size. Great job!

      Thanks! It was definitely worth the effort to not be lugging around a huge suitcase while we were in Europe.
