What's Your Chocolate Blog Hop
M. Pax, Laura Eno, Brinda Berry & Ciara Knight, what a fun idea for a blog hop! I mean, who doesn't love chocolate? The hardest part of participating in this hop, was trying to narrow down and pick my favorite chocolate experience to tell you about! Here's one of my fav chocolate stories.
When my girls were very young, The Husband and I decided to take them to visit "The Sweetest Place on Earth", a/k/a Hershey, Pennsylvania. From the minute we checked into the Hershey Lodge, my girls were eating chocolate bars, hand over fist! Chocolate is everywhere in Hershey. Because of the chocolate factory, even the air in Hershey smells like chocolate. It's fabulous.
Anyway, this was where my youngest, Francesca, discovered Reese's Peanut Butter Cups for the very first time. After her first taste of that epic chocolate/creamy peanut butter combination, she was hooked. For the rest of our trip, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, were the only thing she wanted to eat!
On our last morning of vacation, The Husband and I booked a special "character" breakfast for the girls, as a little surprise. Never in a million years did I imagine the reaction Francesca would have, when she saw the over-sized Reese's Peanut Butter Cup coming towards us. She started screaming, jumped up from the table and took off! I ran after her and when I finally got her to stop, calm down, and tell me what was wrong, she cried and said, "That giant chocolate was coming to get me, because I ate up of its little brothers!" LOL
We love Hershey, and it's become a tradition in our family, to go back and visit every year. Now that she's older, we tease the heck out of the poor kid for thinking that Reese's Peanut Butter cup was coming back to seek revenge. Here she is with one of her big sisters Faith- Thankfully, she's no longer afraid of the characters!
Happy "What's Your Chocolate" Blog Hopping Everyone! ~Jaybird
