Come along on a journey to the place where "sweet" was born. In 1916, American chocolatier Milton S. Hershey went to Cuba to grow sugarcane. While he was there, he built a massive empire on the tropical island, including a town for 2,000 employees and their families, 251 miles of electric railroad, and the largest sugar refinery ever built in Cuba. In its first year of operation, the Hershey refinery produced enough sugar to make 1.6 million Hershey'sâ„¢ chocolate bars. Milton S. Hershey was a philanthropist, and it was in Cuba that his belief in a kinder and gentler society was brought into sharpest focus. From the Roaring Twenties to the Great Depression and beyond, Hershey not only provided steady work to thousands of Cubans, he also offered them a better life. Archival film, still photographs, on-site footage, and never-before-seen interviews make this a journey through time and space you won't soon forget.
