Chocolate Factory



We all have seen Willie Wonka and the Chocolate factory. Today's picture shows a real chocolate factory. The picture was taken in Israel in 1939. The factory was created by the American Colony in Jerusalem. I think I would enjoy the job this woman has, which was to wrap the chocolates. I would be very diligent in testing the chocolate and would eat any pieces that were inadvertently dropped and broken.

I continue to get reminded of good candies with your comments. I think DADD pointed out the Bit-o-Honey. That was always one of my favorites. Also, someone brought up the Cherry Mash, which I had forgotten about. Also, I would like to know your least favorite candy and why. My least favorite was the 3 musketeer because it had no nuts, and that whipped filling was more sweet than anything else.

  1. I go along with the 3- musketeer also. Two thing about it, I don't really like chocolate and I want a candy bar I can chew on.

  2. As a kid I liked to get the Susy Q's mainly because they are so big that you get your money's worth and then when my sister was done with her candy bar I had had more Susy Q to go. I like the Sky Bars always have. Don't like the Charleston Chew. You wind up chewing it forever and it feels like your fillings are getting pulled out.

  3. I hated Necco wafers. They just seemed so bland, like bits of chalk. Not fond of red licorice, either. The black licorice was good though.

  4. Bit-o-Honey one of my least favorites. Snickers and Coffe Crisp are my favorites.

  5. Anything with coconut gags me, and that covers many different candy bars. Dark chocolate is the very best, though!

  6. That "finished product" pile might be the results of an entire day of wrapping. That's impressive until you realize that today, a machine/robot can make a pile that big in probably three seconds.

  9. I always wanted a Black Cow and then could never finish it. When I wanted to save it on a napkin in the kitchen, my mom was not happy. Kind of a mess!

  10. We once lived near a Russell Stover outlet. Their policy was to allow employees to eat as much as they wanted on premises, but they could not take any off-site. They soon lost their taste for it.

  11. I second a thumbs down for 3 Musketeers -- a lot of sweet goo and not much else. I also dislike Bit O Honeys (horrors!) because of a childhood family road trip to FL where we kids were over hungry and my mom tried to appease our hunger with Bit O Honeys. It didn't work. LOL

  12. I don't care for coconut, and heartily dislike anything minty. Like eating toothpaste.

    Oddly enough - or not - mint was one of my sister's favorites. She once made a batch of brownies, poured half into the pan, topped that with York Peppermint Patties and then covered the Patties with the rest of the brownie mix. I thought she had put some sort of crème in the middle - think Mallow Cups - and was VERY disappointed to discover otherwise.
