Food Friday - Hershey Bars

Reminiscing about a childhood memory

My boss dropped two Hershey Kisses with almonds on my desk.  I do favor dark chocolate, but probably love every chocolaty version in existence.  The almond and milk chocolate together is a nice blend of flavor.  While enjoying the taste, it brought back a memory:

I remember being with my mother at the local laundromat.  I was probably about  6 years old. I remember the sounds of the tumblers spinning and the scents coming off of the dryers.  I remember a vendor machine there that dispensed candy.  My mother takes a Hershey chocolate bar with almonds out of her purse, or purchase one, and offer some to me.

The nearby buildings that were once part of that downtown area have been razed.  The building that housed the laundromat remains but is now an apartment building.  At least I can still sit down with a Hershey Bar and remember.
