We drove into Hershey, PA today and went to Chocolate World.
We went into the tasting room and learned about tasting chocolate. First you look at it. It should have a shiny look to it. Then you break it. Dark chocolate will snap louder than milk chocolate. Then you smell it. And last but not least, you get to taste it. We got to taste the raw cocao bean. Not nearly as good as chocolate.
What you see, is what you get for $9.95 tasting tour. Inside the paper bag were 4 small bars of chocolate. First was dark, then milk chocolate, bliss and last but my favorite, was the Scharffen Berger milk chocolate. Sounds European, but it's made in California and is a division of Hershey.
It was a lot of fun and of course we came back with some chocolate.
