Who bought a ticket to sail on the Titanic but never boarded the ship?
The man behind America’s most iconic chocolate bar, Milton Hershey, bought a VIP ticket for the Titanic but ended up not boarding the ship as planned. The founder of the Hershey Chocolate Company had spent the winter in France and planned to sail home on the Titanic. The Hershey Company Archives has in its collection a $300 check Hershey wrote to the White Star Line as a deposit toward his stateroom. Fortunately for Hershey, business back home apparently intervened, and he instead caught a ship that was sailing earlier, the German liner Amerika.
Answer: The correct answer is Milton Hershey.
