Chocolate World!

How can you go to a place called "Chocolate World" and it not be the most wonderful place?  Oh man, what a fun day we had ahead of us!

We began the day with this brunch of all brunches.  It made us brunch people.  Like, all I can think about is this brunch.  It was incredible!

And this wasn't even half of what they had to choose from.  Man, I was sick when I left that place of all places.  Wow.  Oh, and this was a place we just kind of happened upon.  And they only do it on Sundays.

Next stop - Chocolate World!

We went into Chocolate World thinking we would be there for a few hours and then go check out some place else.  Boy were we wrong.  There was so much to do!

We started with a 4D movie that the boys got such a kick out of!

And then we took a tour of the factory!

Then we did a Chocolate Tasting Tour.

Then we found all kinds of giant every things.

And we met Mr. Hershey Bar.

And then.  We did the thing of all things.  The fun of all funs.  The dream of all dreams.

We made our VERY OWN HERSHEY CANDY BARS!

Okay.  Can we all just have a moment and pause at the absolute adorableness of those boys in bakers outfits?  I just can not even handle one more minute of it!

This was certainly a highlight of the trip.

The boys were beside themselves and totally felt like we were in Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory.

We got to pick out our chocolate, what we wanted inside of them (chocolate chips, toffee bits, pretzels, cookie bits, etc.).  You got to pick 3.

How great of an idea is this?

After our bars were made, they went through a cooling process and we got to design our own packaging.

The entire thing was just so fun.  I want to go back and do it again and again!  And, I do make a mighty fine Hershey bar if I do say so myself. :)

It's safe to say we all left Chocolate World FULL of sugar and sweetness.

What a FUN place!  I recommend it to any and everyone!

We woke up late the next morning, enjoyed a delicious lunch and headed home with happy hearts and sleepy eyes.  What a fun adventure in Hershey, PA.

Indeed, the Sweetest Place on Earth.
