Long Description:
In Hershey, along US Route 422, are the words, "Hershey Cocoa," not far from the Hershey Chocolate Factory.

The words are on the north side of the street, on a slight slope and by an access road to the factory property. They are made from bushes that are about two feet high and brownish in color against a green lawn.

I believe that this has been there for decades. The factory, however, has mostly been demolished, recently. Behind these bushes are a large expanse of open land. Much of the factory remains - the administrative offices along the road and the iconic smokestacks. There is a sign that states that the offices are being renovated to the 21st century. A link to a blog has also been included.
