Hershey’s Chocolate by Sydney

Hershey’s Chocolate Company has been around since 1894 and the founder, Milton Hershey, created such favorites as M&MS and Krackel Bars. The Hershey’s Company is one of the largest chocolate manufacturers in the world. Their products are sold in over 60 countries worldwide. They are a member of the World Cocoa Foundation. In 1903, Milton Hershey began construction of a cocoa plant in Derry Church, Pennsylvania, which was later renamed Hershey. The plant workers and their families lived there and Milton Hershey held social events for them. They also introduced a new product, Hershey’s Kisses, in 1907. The process to wrap the new product was long and hard until machine wrapping was introduced in 1921. They added the paper ribbon at the same time to make sure it was a real Hershey’s product. Their other products included: Mr.Goodbar, Hershey’s syrup, chocolate chips and the Krackel Bar. In conclusion, Hershey’s chocolate is my favorite chocolate.

My Experience at the MIM by Sydney

Last Friday, I went to the Musical Instrument Museum with Quin, my hab worker and I had an amazing time there looking at all the exhibits. There were instruments from all over the world, like violins, cellos, guitars, harps, pianos, drums and many others. There were different galleries on instruments from different parts of the world like South America, Asia, Europe, Africa and The Middle East. All the exhibits had regional costumes. There was an exhibit on musicians like Elvis Presley. There was another exhibit on different kinds of music like Jazz, Hip-Hop, Country and Pop music. I had the best time looking at all the instruments. My favorite part was getting to see all the amazing instruments. My favorite instrument was the Grand Piano in the foyer.

In conclusion, I found this movie to show off Batman in Japanese Animation as well as at one of his most greatest & historically heroic moments to date “No PUN Intended”.

This game’s story takes place throughout the entire kingdom of Arba. The locations in this game consist of the Royal kingdom of Arba, the Scientific town of Caliburgh, the Desert town of Colissea, The Elven Forest of Sylvea, the Dwarven stronghold of Grannet, the Fortress/AirShip “StoneCloud” and the World Tree “Yggdrasil”.

 

In this game, you can play through the story as either the fiery, tacticianal hero Luceus or the icy, bold heroine Aurora.

 

The protagonists in this game consist of Luceus (Main Hero/Captain)(Dragon Quest-Heroes)(Swords & Shields), Aurora (Main Heroine/Captain)(Dragon Quest-Heroes)(Rapiers & Shields), Doric (King of Arba/the Royal Rumbler)(Dragon Quest-Heroes)(Staffs), Isla (Inventor)(Dragon Quest-Heroes)(Boomerangs), Kiryl (Priest/Soldier)(Dragon Quest-IV)(Spears), Alena (Princess/Martial Artist)(Dragon Quest-IV)(Gauntlets), Terry (the World’s Greatest Swordsman)(Dragon Quest-VI)(Swords & Shields), Yangus (the Legendary Bandit turned Hero)(Dragon Quest-VIII)(Axes), Jessica (Sorceress)(Dragon Quest-VIII)(Whips), Bianca (Archer)(Dragon Quest-V)(Bows & Arrows), Nera (Sorceress/Debutante)(Dragon Quest-V)(Wands), Maya (Dancer/Sorceress)(Dragon Quest-IV)(Dual Fans) and Psaro (Warrior)(Dragon Quest-IV)(GreatSwords).

In conclusion, I’ve learned from this game that believing in the light of all things good also in turn encourages us to never give hope nor to never give up on others. Only then will we forever drive away the deepest darkness of both hatred and despair.

Sonic the Hedgehog(2006)(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Sonic the Hedgehog for the PlayStation 3. In this game you play not only as Sonic The Hedgehog, but also as Shadow the Hedgehog as well as a new character called Silver the Hedgehog. This game’s storyline takes place throughout the Kingdom of Soleanna (the City of Water).

 

The protagonists in this game consist of Sonic the Hedgehog (the Blue Blur)(Main Hero), Shadow the Hedgehog (the Ultimate Lifeform)(Sonic’s Rival), Silver the Hedgehog (a PsychoKinetic)(Time-Traveling rebel), Miles “Tails” Prower (a Two-Tailed Fox)(Sonic’s best friend), Knuckles the Echidna (the Last of his Kind)(the Master Emerald’s lone Guardian), Rouge the Bat (a Jewel Thief/Secret Agent)(Shadow’s accomplice), E-123 Omega(a Robotic Soldier)(Shadow’s ally), Blaze the Cat (a PyroKinetic)(Silver’s best friend/partner) and Amy Rose (a PikoPiko Hammer wielding Battle-Maiden)(Sonic’s self-proclaimed Girlfriend). The antagonists in this game consist of Dr. EggMan (the Main Villain)(an Evil super-genius/Sonic’s arch-enemy), Mephiles the Dark (the Embodiment of Darkness), Iblis(the Flames of Disaster) and Solaris (the Sun God of Soleanna)(the Flame of Hope/Disaster).

 

In conclusion, I found this game to be extremely tense yet highly emotional. For instance, there was both intense sadness and incredible happiness when Sonic the Hedgehog was killed by Mephiles the Dark then Resurrected through the power of all seven Chaos Emeralds. In short, this game is without a doubt worthy of being the Sonic the Hedgehog franchises 15th anniversary.
