Chocolate for Christmas – Day 5

HERSHEY BAR - Janeb13 -- PX

It’s probably safe to say that the ‘first family’ of chocolate in the U. S. A. is Hershey. And ever since they created the first “Hershey chocolate bar” for WWII soldiers on the battlefield, they’ve held a special place in the hearts of chocolate lovers everywhere. The bars created for the soldiers didn’t taste nearly as good as the ones we eat today. Their purpose during the war was to provide nutrition in emergency situations, and they were made to hold up under extreme conditions so that they lasted for entire campaigns. You can read more about the history of Hershey’s chocolate bars HERE.
