How often do you use your imagination? It’s a wonderful magical thing – the stuff dreams are made of! So why don’t adults use it more? Maturity really takes a toll, the stress of life gets a hold of you and bills/deadlines and other “adult” things consume your life, but nothing can ever take away your ability to dream.
We all remember at least one special memory from the world of childhood. Maybe it was an entire house made out of cotton candy, or a tree house that was a castle, or maybe a bicycle that was a dragster. Whatever it was, you made it your own. You imagined something and it became real. The world is at your fingertips! With just a little imagination you could travel around the world and make your dreams come true without ever leaving home.
Lets be kids again, just for a little while. Here at Hershey’s® Ice Cream, we’ve decided that it’s not actually raining outside right now. We’ve imagined it’s cloudy with a chance of ice cream! It’s snowing our favorite flavor! How awesome would it be to stick a cone out of the door and have it fill up with whatever flavor you wanted?!!!!
So young or old, jump on the imagination train right now and let go. If you want to, share your journey with us!
Well it’s that time of year again when we get out our jerseys and root our NFL team on their journey to the Super Bowl. But what about all of us who’s team didn’t make it this year?
Yes, it would have been nice for the excitement of seeing your team reach the top and come out in victory, but isn’t it a bit stressful? Always having that week-long tension of anticipation for Sunday’s game. Smack talk from fans of the other team, and then there’s that last minute field goal to win by one. It’s enough to make you need anxiety medication!
So we would all agree that by choice, we’d want our team to keep going, but when they don’t, isn’t nice to be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy the playoff season? We aren’t saying you have to be glad they are out, just that it might be nice to finally be able to relax!
Who’s your team? Or if your team is done for the season, who do you want to see win…or lose?
Remember those warm days? Feet in the sand, sunglasses on, refreshing milkshake or smoothie in hand? Summer is such a wonderful time! The sun is shining and everyone wants to soak up the rays. The only problem is it doesn’t last all year.
If absence makes the heart grow fonder, we could say that the blistering winds and subfreezing temperatures of Winter make us appreciate the Summer months more… But we’re ready to put away our Eskimo gear and break out the bathing suits!
We all have different ways to help us get through the Winter. Maybe you put on some Bob Marley, sit back and picture yourself with your feet deep in the sand, staring into clear blue water. Maybe you ignore the ice warnings and go for a drive with the windows down (bundled up in a stadium jacket, scarf, and gloves!). Just imagine, you’re on a tropical island, the hot sun and the cool water. You reach for a cool drink as the palm trees sway in the background… Then open your eyes to 2 feet of snow outside, your pipes are frozen, and you haven’t been able to feel your toes since October.
Yeah, we’ve all been there. Tell us how you survive the cold Winter months?
2012 is the year of the Green Cow. No, not because of Chinese Astrology! It’s because here at Hershey’s® we’re always thinking about you. We’re proud to be an American family-owned company, and we know that our employees are our greatest asset. So we focus on working with other American companies which help generate new U.S. jobs as well as stimulate local economies (which is bound to bring a few real smiles)!
We want to build a better environment for tomorrow, filled with opportunities and delicious ice cream! That’s why we’ve been paving the way for the “green” movement for years. We’re not jumping on the bandwagon, we’ve been helping to drive it.
Long before it was the “in thing” to reduce, reuse, and recycle, we implemented methods of recycling used materials and selling reusable goods to local businesses. We have also taken steps to minimize our carbon footprint, and are constantly researching and applying new ideas. Investing in our own pre-treatment system purifies waste from our plant before it enters the city septic line, and owning and operating our own fleet of delivery trucks reduces emissions in many ways . These are just a few of the many energy saving tools we utilize every day!
So next time you think about the future, remember that it’s bright because we care! The year of the Green Cow is here, and your favorite ice cream company is always working for you and your world.
