On Palmer Square in Princeton, N.J., this one of my favorite shoppes to buy a treat. All Chocolate, of course. On the other side of town, is their Ice cream shoppe on Nassau Street.
The Bent Spoon is another shop that is fairly new in past few years. Their ice cream is made fresh with all natural ingredients and local ingredients. My favorite flavor is hazelnut.

Hershey, Pa is a great place to go for both the young and young at heart. After all, many poeple love chocolate in it’s many forms and tastes. Driving along Chocolate Avenue, it’s great fun to see the street lights are built like enormous Hershey kisses. While at Chocolate World, we took the indoor ride that explains the chocolate making process. Many years ago, I came here and the tours were still in the actual Chocolate factory. My mother relayed to me that she remembers the workers stop to wave at us looking through the display glass windows. I thoroughly enjoyed the Trolley ride and tour of Chocolate town. The tour operator was retired and a former graduate of the Milton S. Hershey school. By coming back, he shares the wonderful experience he had. To learn about the history of how it all started , it’s worth the time to spend an hour in the Hershey Museum. We spent more time than planned in the Hershey museum; it was raining. Perhaps we’ll come back another time to explore Hershey Park; They are closing the museum and building a bigger one with a visitor center. They plan to open a Ballroom like they had here years ago as ballroom dancing has made a comeback. We had a lunch in the Hershey hotel. That was a delicious dessert that we shared at the Fountain room in Hershey Hotel- flourless chocolate cake and raspberry sorbet. It tasted thick and rich like a mousse. We did not stay there; Since vacation was only approved one week before this trip, sadly the Hershey Hotel was all booked. The place we stayed at was comfortable and clean. The included continental breakfast had mostly everthing you might want for breakfast. On the last day, we went to the American Antique Automobile musem. Cars from the 1900’s through 1970’s were there; creatively displayed with period backgrounds. It was 50’s day that day. More 50’s cars were in the parking lot.
