Well I'll be I did visit Hershey PA years ago when they still made it there, that's a shame, they are going off the list, thanks

BrendaReeves on 10/30/2012

Katie, If you look on the label of a Hershey's bar, I believe all the production is done in Mexico now. The Mars Co. is in Kansas, and Ghirardellie chocolate is made in San Francisco. If you visit Louisville, you can visit the Louisville Slugger Museum and see how bats are made.

Now I'm dying for some chocolate. Great article!
