On the northbound leg of our vacation road trip, we stopped for lunch in Pennsylvania at Hershey's Chocolate World. We got salads for lunch and a S'mores Cup to share for dessert. It was basically a pile of sawdust-like graham cracker crumbs under a layer of melted chocolate which was covered with a layer of mini-marshmallows and a drizzle of chocolate on top. It tasted fine but could have benefited from being stirred before the marshmallows were added.

I saw a family ordering ice cream cones and couldn't believe my eyes. Here they were inside Hershey's Chocolate World and they ordered plain vanilla cones. One of them was happy to comply when I asked if I could photograph the insanity.

A few other treats caught my eye. The peanut butter cookies were decorated with Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. The Chocolate Iced Chocolate Mini Cakes appeared to actually be slices of cake covered in icing on all sides. I think local supermarkets that sell cake by the slice could steal this idea and add more icing.

When we saw the display of Hershey's Barbies, my son said, "I thought she would be bigger."

Plain Vanilla? I actually KNOW someone who would do that! My Stepdad. Well, he "might" spring for a strawberry shake, but probably would get a scoop of Vanilla with extra vanilla. However, his girlfriend would get Super-Choco-holic-Killer-Death Chocolate with chocolate sprinkle with chocolate whipped cream, topped with anything else chocolate.

A chocolate Barbie? That just brings to mind so many euphemisms that I will just end there. I assume there is a reason that there ISN'T a chocolate Ken...
