Where did Milton Hershey build his giant chocolate factory? In the middle of a cornfield! The town of Hershey, Pennsylvania, was built surrounding the factory so that its workers had a place to live and raise their families. To help the U.S. Army, he created a special chocolate bar that didn't melt. If soldiers ate three Field Ration D bars a day, they'd have all the nutrition they needed to survive. He made chocolate in 114 shapes, including fans, lobsters, and bicycles. He earned $60 million selling Hershey's chocolate -- and then gave his whole fortune to a school!
