Business at chocolate world has been a little slow lately.

He’s thinking; “Who is this woman they sat next to me? and I want my mommy”.
The best part is that they actually had to purchase this picture
haaaaaaaaaaaaaahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa can you feel it? the love!
i feel the love hahah
I was afraid for my love….and then I took her along with me on a ride to HELL. They say the road to hell is paved with….CHoco-late TReats….and ..and Kandy Korn is sold …..sold on the side of the STREEEEEtt…..
We went there and it was the worst, fakest “factory” tour ever, with cheap anamatrons and vats of brown gloop that was supposed to be chocolate. It flashes your picture at the end and when we looked at our group we laughed sooooo hard. Every person on the ride looked bored out of their goards, like they just couldn’t wait to get the experience over and get back to real life. Why would they keep doing photos on this tour? It only shows off how bad it is, and I can’t imagine anyone purchasing them, except, as this couple did, because they were so bad!
After working for HCW for the past 4 years (the place owns my soul, I swear) I can safely say that’s not the worst. If it were a few years later I’d say their expression was due to the ridiculous singing heifers and the “farmer” cow who takes the picture with his super creepy voice and that inane song that never shuts up.
They’re probably in Hershey. Did anyone tell them Hershey moved to Mexico?
The both look so happy….
This is the Haunted Hershey’s Chocolate World. It’s a totally different.
They look like they are having so much fun! I’m booking my vacation to Hershey now!! YES!!!
OMG, I was also on this tour, and I have a picture when I was maybe 8, and I looked so emotionless too, as well as my brother who was 13, it is definitely more awkward than this picture, if I find it I will scan it and get it posted lol
Usually it’s a happier place… Come on, what, did they stop handing out the free chocolate at the end of that ride??
Someone was having a blast on the Hershey Tour.. Just not these two.
Hershey should use this as their display picture at the begining of the tour!
Yeah because EVERYBODY would want one once they saw how AMAZINGLY EXCITED these people were at the end of the ride. “It must be great! Look at them!”
OH boy. They look SO thrilled. haha.
Maybe they were dissapointed in the fact that Willy-Wonka made the chocolate world seem so much more magical. lol.
And they PAID for that photo
Been there, done that, our picture looks just as scary.
OH MY GOSH!
I live 20 minutes away from Hershey and my friends and I go there just to ride that ride and make the most akward and ridiculos photos!
But this…is just akward. What do you say about that?? Why would you purchase it??
Obviously to these people..Hershey is NOT the sweetest place on earth.
With a steely gaze Molly looked at her husband and said “We waited TWO HOURS just to get that ride to ourselves for the picture you just HAD to have and NOW it is too late to go to that little antique store I wanted to go to…we are buying that photo.”
I have been on that ride, and yes, it is that exciting.
it is as if they are saying “where are the umpa lumpas?”
OMW i laughed sooo hard when i saw this!
I live 45 minutes from Hershey, PA and have been on this “ride” at least twice a year for the past 10 years. It is actually really fun, so the people’s expression (or lack thereof) makes this picture amazing! One person was right on target…they would have seen this picture afterwards, then decided to spend about $20 dollars to buy it!
Oh my god… it’s more like dazed and confused carnivale ride to the mental hospital…
“This is my BEST valentine’s day, ever!!!!!
I bet they just had a spat.
I was afraid THIS was actually their Christmas card… which is sad because… this is the best you could come up with for 2003????? So much for those bragging Christmas letters….. TOP THIS!!!!!!
this made me smile. i live within walking distance of the chocolate factory and anyone that visits us, we take them there because it’s free.
i have like a billion of these sitting in my attic.
the fourth happiest place on earth… behind, of course, storybook land…
… and the reptile gardens…
this pic. is realy weird i live about 1 hour away from this place..
1st scenario – These people are total strangers… They’ve never spoken to one another. And this is a horror ride. The lady got scared and slid over next to the man to where she could just slightly feel his leg brushing up against hers… She needed human contact ever so badly… Times were hard back home… She just wanted someone, anyone, to make her feel human again.
2nd scenario – It started out as a fun family tour. These two with their three loving children. Part of the ride is complete darkness, at which point the kids suddenly disappeared. Then the couple realized why Hershey’s chocolate tastes so sweet – It’s made out of sweet, kind-hearted children.
The most awkward part of this whole page is the 1st scenario you just described.
I have to add – When you go on this tour the picture totally takes you by surprise. You are trying to listen to the words being blasted over a speaker and everything is distracting and hard to hear. Then, all the sudden you get a “smile for the camera” and you’re like “huh?” and by that point it’s too late.
Right on Matt. We just went to Hershey and on our first factory tour all four of us are looking in different directions in the pic. We look like idiots but I bought the pic anyway. Hershey needs to step up their game on this one.
OMG!!! I totally have one of these pictures!!! For some reason that day I decided to weary a rainbow-striped sweater (what was I thinking) so it really IS awkward!!!
The chocolate is the thing. The people are superfluous and irrelevant.
OH NO!!!! That’s Slugwoth!!!! He’s trying to steal the Chocolate recipe!
OMG it is!!
This was obviously taken right before the big thumbs up and heel click.
And they actually came off of the tour, saw the picture, and decided that they MUST buy it to share with their friends because they couldn’t possibly describe in words their incredible excitement ….
Context is important. When Chocolate World was finally boarded up, Sylvester Chester Wester, pictured on the left here, bought the place out and turned it into a mortuary. This is the commemorative photo he took with his first client.
You can tell she’s the client and not the deceased. She’s sitting up.
Good catch, Tocsnai! I thought I recognized that guy from my uncle’s funeral…
“… and this is what you get if you have the golden ticket…?”
We all just hope that those two are actually together. and she’s thinking, ” six whole seats on this thing, should I worry really??”
“NOW you tell me you’re allergic to chocolate?!?”
No Oopma Loompas, obviously.
It doesn’t look like such a “Happy Holiday” to them….smile!
so much for chocolate being a mood elevator!
No way, you should have seen them *before* the endorphin rush!
This is one of the funniest pics yet – love it!
