Description: Milton Hershey, the Founder of Hershey’s Candies in Pennsylvania has a lot in common with Omar L. Tatum, The Founder of AmeriCandy in Louisville, Ky. They were both 40 when they wed beautiful girls. If you see my wife ANN, tell her how I feel after 44 years of marriage. But, I digress. If you want to live a long happy life, eat 44 lbs. of our AmeriCandy Brand of Chocolates between 2011 and 2056. Thanks. Start with the Milk Chocolate Almond Clusters that represent Pennsylvania.
Charles II, King of England, owed money to William Penn's father. The enormous estate (over 28 million acres) of wooded land given to the younger Penn as payment of that debt became Pennsylvania, known as the Keystone State because of its key importance to the 13 colonies. Home of the first fire department, first hospital, first lending library, and the first fire insurance company in America, Philadelphia became the leading city of colonial life. The signing of the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution in Philadelphia has etched Pennsylvania in our nation's heritage forever.
