When Harrisburg and Hershey fight for chocolate dominance, we all win!
Of course, I have nothing against Hersey per se - in fact, it's quite the opposite. And if one day I am duty bound to tour a chocolate factory, soak in a chocolate spa, and drink chocolate cocktails, I'm sure I'll muster my strength and rise to the occasion. But there's only so much heroism that can fit into a weekend escape and I was proud to dedicate my Herculean efforts to Harrisburg.

Doing comprehensive chocolate research isn't a task for the faint of heart but I was proud to rise to the occasion and do my best for the Harrisburg chocolate community!
