That Elvis postcard was amazingly Elvis-y. It almost hurt my eyes.

Elvis in all his glory. No doubt about it....And, I will consider placing a "view at your own risk" warning on future Elvis postings.

Is there a real chocolate factory in USA? The card seems very interesting.

O'Neal said...

twenty, yes, there's a Hershey's chocolate factory in Hershey, Pennsylvania; the largest in the world. Up until recently, they used to give tours, but no more. Now, they have simulated tour rides at Hershey's Chocolate World visitor center. There's also a chocolate-themed amusement park located in Hershey, PA.

Errrr, I think I've left something on it...it seems disappear in some mysterious reason...

O'Neal said...

Twenty: Really? I don't recall any other comments on this particular post. But, a couple weeks ago, your and my comments disappeared, and then later on, reappeared on a different post. (The entire post, itself, had briefly disappeared, too.) Blogger.com was having problems back then, but everything seems to be back to normal now.

Oh how strange, I can see all the comments now...I agree with you that the Blogger.com had some problems before!

Wow, the largest chocolate factory in the world, exciting! I know Hershey, but never eat any, it must taste delicious since they have so great factory. In my childhood, I read the book of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and I'v dreamed to visit such factory myself. Sorry but I cannot understand you meaning. You said no more tours now but why still a tour rides?

Twenty: Ok, good. I'm glad you can see all the comments now.

I've never read the related book, but I HAVE watched the 1971 movie, "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" several times. Fun movie!

I meant that they don't have tours through the actual factory anymore. But they do have a visitor center that has a simulated tour, to give visitors an idea of what goes on in the factory.
