We all need to plan a road trip to Hershey this summer. Or maybe we should wait until fall - let the crowds die down and keep our chocolate from melting.
Why do we need to go?
Because they are expanding my favorite place - Chocolate World - and creating a mini factory experience where we can make our own chocolate bars!!!!!!! Read this:
Guests, wearing factory aprons and hairnets (okay the hairnets will suck), will select and load ingredients such as caramel bits, graham crackers and crisped rice and pull levers and handles to dispense the ingredients via equipment similar to machinery used in Hershey’s factories.
YAY! I say! How much fun would that be!! (Although peanut butter better be on the list somewhere.)
I want to go NOW!
The five-ounce bars will be cooled and wrapped in custom packaging created by guests. The price of the attraction is expected to be $12.95, Hahn said.
I don't care if it's $50 - that sounds cool as hell! Okay, well Hell isn't cool, but you know what I mean.
Here's the artist's rendition of the building:
I am drawn to that like a moth to a flame!
In fact, I think I see myself - I'm the one trying to stick my mouth under the caramel dispenser.
2010 is going to be a very good year indeed!!!
