Have You Visited Hershey, PA?

Pros: Hersheys go with cokes, smores, snacks, brownie topped with a melted bar and ice cream

Cons: Do not overindulge-can cause your scales to go up!

The Bottom Line: I recommend Hershey milk chocolate when you want a sweet snack, but like all sweets, you should eat them in moderation.

This is the home of the Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar. I went to Hershey, PA over eight years ago and it was a lovely place to visit. It was so much fun watching how they made the candy and even how they packaged it. They gave everyone a free minature Hershey bar at the end of your tour. Then they had a cafe where you could order food, milkshakes, or drinks. They had a store to purchase your gifts which included ten pound bars of Hershey's chocolate. You get them to write your boyfriend's name on the candy. They also had t-shirts and a lot of other mementos, but I personally could never get past the delicious aroma of the chocolate! When you drove into the city the first thing you noticed were the lamp lights that were shaped just like Candy Kisses.

I think my passion for eating milk chocolate candy bars started many years before that visit to PA! In my family growning up, we did not keep cokes or candy bars stocked in the kitchen like a lot of families do today. When my mom went shopping for groceries on Saturday and yes we all went with her, she would get us a treat for Saturday night while we were listening to Lawrence Welk. Am I telling my age or what? In the older days, your candy bars were smaller and less expensive. I remember paying 5 cents when I stopped by the grocery store after school in the fifth grade. Now the cheapest way for me to purchase the 1.55 oz. bar is in a six-carton of bars which usually sell for $1.99 at SuperWalmarts.

What makes Hershey's chocolate taste so great? The ingredients are listed below:

milk chocolate
cocoa butter
soy lecithin
artifical flavor

Of course knowing how much of each ingredient to develop that delicious flavor will never be revealed.

The nutrition facts on this bar is listed below:

Total fat-13 g
Saturated fat-9g
Trans fat-0
Dietary fiber-1g
Sugars -22g
Vitamin A-0%
Vitamin C-0%

I have to admit that Hershey bars are not the healthiest snacks to eat, but when you are really craving something sweet and deliciou, you cannot go wrong with this candy bar! Do I need to remind you that Hershey bars goes with with Graham Crackers and Marshmallows (that have been roasted over a flame) to make great smores?

Thank you for reading!
