Day Five: Hershey, Utz, and Wilbur

Today was not a day to count calories! We began at Hershey's Chocolate World. I love chocolate; rarely does a day go by that I don't include it in my diet. We all went on a 'factory tour', which was more like Disney World's 'It's a Small World' ride. Scott and Annelies went to a 4D movie experience, while Paradis and I attended a Chocolate Tasting Experience. I could have taught the course.

The girls were most excited to make their own chocolate bar. 

While the girls were creating, I chatted with a local and learned about the Utz Potato Chip factory. So we took a little detour south of Hershey to Hanover, Pennsylvania where we watched potato chips being made. Very cool, and free (my favorite kind of tour). At the outlet the girls were excited to walk out with 19 bags of snack-size chips. I told you this wasn't a day to count calories! 

From Hanover we drove northeast to Lititz Pennsylvania to visit Wilbur Chocolate. I just love their chocolate buds, and they are owned by Cargill. 

We put a few more miles behind us and ended up in Quakertown Pennsylvania in preparation to see the Liberty Bell tomorrow. I'm excited. The girls wanted Chinese for dinner; guess where we ended up ... an all-you-can-eat buffet! Oh man, I'm going to need to go on a diet tomorrow!

The girls had a lot of fun - it was a good day.
