Distraction of the Day: Love You, Hershey

It’s funny how similar Hershey and State College are. Both towns were products of single institutions. In Hershey, it was Milton Hershey’s chocolate company. In State College, it was the Farmers’ High School of Pennsylvania (a.k.a. Penn State– have you heard of it?).

This video is about Hershey, more specifically, the chocolate factory. It’s one of those old-school educational videos that our generation sees more often in the form of modern parodies than in the original incarnations. There’s a nice mention of the Penn State Hershey Medical Center a few minutes into the edutainment- it’s pretty amazing how much the compound has expanded since the video was produced.
