“Good but crowded”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

If in Times Square Hersheys is a must - but the best thing about this shop is the outside decoration and the freebies on entry. It is expensive on most items and because it is a small shop it is always crowded making it difficult to get around and to see the chocolate. It would be difficult for anyone with a pushchair or for a wheelchair user.

“The smell and the taste”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

This was the second best chocolate store I've ever visited in New York after the Lindt one in 5th Ave. The smell is amazing, delicious, enveloping you making you feel happy. It's a very small shop but the chocolate and other stuff is worth the crowds. There are also free offerings for people to taste new products and promotions like "buy x pay y".

“Wonderful smell of chocolate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

This Hershey store is too small. I have been to Hershey world in Hershey Pennsylvania and this doesn't hold a candle to it. I was very disappointed being that it was in Times Square I. thought there would be more to choose from in a much larger space. They are very friendly, when you walk in you get a free sample of Candy. Too bad the place is so small. Go to M&M world across the street it has three floors of everything M&M's instead.

“Very small store, prices somewhat reasonable for NYC”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2014

The extravagant outside façade gives an impression of a much grander interior. The store is very, very small. Prices were high but more reasonable than I expected for certain items, if you bought a combination of three or five of these similar items together. Staff ranged from indifferent to friendly. Two free sample candies were given to one member of a group of three upon entering.

“Tourist Trap”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Store is small and always crowded. Selection of Hershey items is large but expensive. I still find us stopping in every time we're in the area to pick up a few things to snack on while seeing a show.
