Pat and I have been watching a series of documentaries on the History Channel called Food That Built America.  Three 2 hour shows that document the famous families that developed businesses with food.  Heinz and the invention of ketchup, the fight between the Kellogg brothers and their fight against Post.  The histories of McDonald’s and Colonel Saunders are also covered.  Very interesting shows.

But there was a lot of attention to the Hershey and Mars families and the wealth they accumulated as they introduced candy bars to America.  We liked it so much we went out and bought a selection of famous historical bars and will enjoy them for dessert for the next few days.
