This past weekend my family and I visited Hershey, Pa that is the home to Hershey’s Chocolate that you may find at local grocery stores. I have always been a fan of Hershey’s Chocolate and I was happy that I was able to get the opportunity to visit. After a three and a half hour car ride we decided to check out their Zooamerica North America Wildlife Park to stretch our legs and burn off some of our pent up energy.
Is he not awesome?
After talking to the crossing guard we decided to check out Hershey World considering it was only about ten minutes away….
We all decided to make our own Hershey’s chocolate bar. Everyone had to wear aprons..bouffant(hair net). Adrian had to wear one for his beard as well, but I believe Sophia wore it the best!
You were able to choose between milk, dark or white chocolate bar, we decided milk chocolate for both bars. Then you were able to choose the type of inclusions.
Does this not look heavenly?
And so it begins!
We added Rice Krispies
Pretzels! That awesome sweet and salty combination you can not go wrong with!
Lets add some more chocolate…
I just had to add a pop of color..
While you are waiting for your chocolate to cool down and harden you had the opportunity to create your own wrapper or you were able to choose one of their wrappers. I of course chose to create my own wrapper.
Here is my wrapper that I was designing. I of course had to add a butterfly!
This screen told you when your candy bar was done and ready for pick-up.
Just some wall decor
I had no idea that Brookside was apart of Hershey.
Who would not one of these for their birthday?
We even decided to do a chocolate tasting.
Did you know that Hershey’s Chocolate is the only company that uses liquid milk and not powdered milk? And that their milk chocolate bar has cheese in it? Who knew!!
Some of their street lights had Hershey kisses! Adorable.
Some areas surrounding Chocolate World had cement chocolate bars.
We absolutely loved Chocolate World, if you have never been there I would highly recommend it. The only issue that we ran into is that you are not allowed to bring your strollers into Chocolate World. They left a designated area for you to leave your strollers, but it was basically “leave at your own risk.” So we condensed our bags and prayed that our possessions would be there when we returned. If you are not opposed to child leashes I would highly recommend one, Chocolate World had a ton of people and a lot going on. Surprisingly enough Sophia did great, when we noticed that she was getting tired we would take a break and take her for a walk in her stroller outside Hershey World. It would be nice if you could bring an umbrella stroller that is a lot less bulky compared to a “regular,” stroller, or if you did not have one if Hershey provided ones for you to rent. I noticed a lot of people were aggravated and surprised that you could not bring your strollers in considering it is family environment. Maybe in the future that policy will change.
I would say that Sophia had a very successful trip to Chocolate World!
