|They saw things like this on their trip.|
Their first stop was The Hershey Story Museum. They decided to just eat lunch in the cafe there since their time was limited. Mom had a pizza and Dad had a ham and cheese wrap. They also shared the Countries of Origin Chocolate Tasting. What is that? It is warm drinking chocolate samples from other countries. It comes with a map so that visitors know where it came from. Mom only liked the first one because it got more bitter with each one.
The folks then toured the museum which told the story of Milton Hershey. The price was $10 a person. They both thought it was interesting, but thought the admission price should be less, if not free.
|Milton and his wife, Catherine.|
|Hershey started out making caramels. This is a caramel cutter.|
His legacy is the school that he founded to help financially needy boys and girls in grades K-12.
He sounds like a really nice man who was generous with his money.
The folks visited the gift shop, but Mom was disappointed in what they offered. She said a couple from another country spent $105 on candy. She said she could buy it elsewhere for less. Dad told her they had another stop, so maybe she would find something there. She didn't know they were headed to....
|It is hard to see, but this is what they rode in.|
|30 candy bars!|
|Mom was hoping to see even more Christmas decorations than this.|
There was a lot more to do at both of the places they visited, but the folks had to get home to us. Their trip home went faster because they traveled the interstate. BOL!
