Then when we got on the tour ride , the staff insisted on getting my daughter a... More

We stopped there on our way back from NY last week and heading to DC. This was a great sop for the students to learn the art on how chocolate is made. The students also had the option to make their own candy bar (~$15) and its pretty cool. This is a great spot to stop and enjoy a few... More

The chocolate experience package was a lot of fun. The trolley tour was very educational. The tour guide has lived in Hershey all of his life and shared the history of the town and its people. We created unique candy bars and wrappers in the lab. The 4D adventure was fun. The chocolate tasting was interesting. Learning to look, smell,... More

The free tour is very interesting,especially for children but we enjoyed it too. It is a ride where you move through the pretend factory and see the process of chocolate making. You use a moving platform to access the ride. There are a number of other activities that have a cost which we felt was too expensive for us. Of... More

If you are a chocolate lover, Hershey's Chocolate World is a must see. It does not matter which chocolate bar you pick up when you at the grocery or a convenience store, that bar owes a debt of gratitude to Hershey's. You are thinking I am full of it? Look up the history of the commercial chocolate bar and get... More
