On our final day of fun in PA we hopped in the car and drove about 30 mins. to visit the Hershey Chocolate Factory. We really had no idea what to expect but wow…..we were all impressed! We purchased the package that we felt would be fun for all 4 of us. It included the Great Chocolate Mystery in 4D, Hershey’s Great American Chocolate Tour and , Create Your Own Candy Bar.
When the movie was done it was our group’s turn to create our own candy bars. What fun!!
After watching in introduction movie we went to video screens and designed our candy bars online. We were able to choose the base chocolate, 3 fillings and weather or not we wanted sprinkles on our bar.
Next it was time to scan our cards again and then follow our candy bars as they travelled along the conveyer belt, dropping in our chosen ingredients. Hannah chose a white chocolate base and Mommy, milk chocolate.
Time for a chocolate bath.
While the bars were cooling we each had an opportunity to design the cover for our candy bar. After that we headed back to the end of the line to watch our bars come out and have them packaged.
If you’re ever in the Hershey or Lancaster, PA area be sure to take time to visit the Chocolate Factory!!
Almost 20 years ago I began babysitting for friends Deb and Scott. I’m not really sure how the tradition began but somehow the tradition of Scott and I taking chocolate home for the other each time we travel began. We’ve both teased that the family many not receive souvenirs from all of our trips but neither of us would ever think of arriving home without chocolate for the other. Heh! Here is Hannah sharing the giant bar we bought for Uncle Scott.
It’s worth the drive to Hershey!
