I love any kind of factory tour. Still trying to find time to tour the Indian assembly plant in Northern Iowa. Which is a shame, cause I LIVE in Iowa!

I think it's a shame about the Hershey tour. I did it as a kid and it was great. I took my grand kids expecting the same and they have some stupid ride with miniatures, it really gives you no id3ea of the scale of what went on. Now it's made in Mexico.

Hmmmm...ya know, I THOUGHT those Hershey kisses I ate recently seemed to contain the subtle but still distinct flavor of cilantro in 'em.

(...good to know my oh-so refined palate is still in tiptop shape)

Yep! Just like a good Single Malt Scotch, you might call me "an acquired taste" TOO.(among the many OTHER things you may care to call me, of course)

Gotta ask here.

Why was your Royal Enfield factory tour cancelled?

Wait, lemme guess.

When you got there, there was a cow standing in the factory's entry doorway and wouldn't allow anyone to pass, and so your tour director told you due to their long-standing feelings about this sort'a thing over there, he'd have to cancel it.

(...okay sure, was that "culturally insensitive" of me here in this day and age?...yeah, probably, but frankly I don't care, and ESPECIALLY after these two Scotchs I've had tonight!)

I would have smacked the stupid beast on the ass and made it move if that were the case, no they cancelled tours sometime last year.

Oh BTW we were in NE India in the state where the 1962 Sino-Indian war was fought Aranachal Pradesh and up there they eat beef, pork and Yak. Mmm Mmm smoked yak curry is wonderful!! and Yak butter tea was a treat!.

Spoken like a true liberal showing ignorance of the history of Milton Hershey. He would be rolling over in his grave right now. Just another manufacturer that moved out of the country due to failed policy. That being said I speaking more to the loss of the tour in my last post.

Hershey moved out of Smith Falls Ontario and who moved in.. ? Well they trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the sign WEED. So the joke is which came first the Munchies or the Pot?
