Chocolate...


I've mentioned that we recently returned from a trip to the Washington D.C. area. While there we visited a number of fascinating sites, not the least of which was Hershey, Pennsylvania. Oh my -- even the street lamps are wonderful in Hershey. I'm like Pavlov's dog when I look at those -- I start salivating...


We started our tour at Hershey's Chocolate World, where we learned how chocolate is made and browsed the fully stocked shelves of their chocolatey store and their bake shop...



Believe it or not we didn't eat any of those delectables. Instead we held out for a little cafe in town that features shots of chocolate from all over the world...


For a girl whose never had "shots" of anything -- this was a great place to start. It is amazing how different chocolate tastes from different areas of the world. My favorite: Mexican chocolate -- so yummy. Each person in our party preferred a different chocolate.  At the end we added a little of each of the chocolates to a shot glass and stirred it up. That combination of chocolates tasted like the chocolate we are accustomed to!


Hershey obviously uses chocolates from all over the world to make their luscious treats!

Oh now this post should have come with a huge warning saying IF YOU ARE CRAVING CHOCOLATE RIGHT NOW DO NOT READ. LOL I've been dying for chocolate all day and for the past hour have been contemplating breaking into a bag of chocolate chips. LOL

HOW in the world did you not buy anything from that shop?

Hershey is definitely a dream come true! Isn't it crazy how much you can actually smell the chocolate from the factory?
