Went here for first time and pleasantly surprised with a free sample!! Every Hershey item was available and you could even get a souvenir Times Square specialized wrapper or card! Great place to go if you like Hershey's milk chocolates and need a fix.

Everyone is given a small free sample when entering the shop. There is so much chocolate to choose from. There are quite a few things with New York on, so ideal to take back home with you after your holiday for family and friends. It's not that cheap, but not overly expensive either. Some normal bars of chocolate are probably... More

So we went to Hershey PA last year and weren't super impressed. This is a cute gift shop. The chocolate is the same you can get in grocery stores but more expensive. They had some cute NYC merchandise. We actually like it a bit more the then one in PA. It is a small store and can be hard to... More

A warm welcome as you enter the store. A free gift of a little wrapped chocolate segment. Staff are fun. Quite expensive but for those of us that restrict chocolate intake to no restrictions at all this is a great visit

I wish this was not located in time square (that place is just unsafe, over-crowded and dirty). I was expecting it to be a lot bigger. The one in Chicago is much bigger and better. The one in NYC was so small and congested I couldn't even enjoy shopping there... So I left without buying anything

A nice little place to visit in Times Square , although the Chocolate was quiet pricy it was a fun place to visit if you love chocolate. We even got to try some free chocolate

Another Times Square tourist trap. This store is very crowded, and they sell the same Hershey's products that can be purchased in any store across the country. There are a few unique items like the custom printed candy bar label and the giant candy bars, but it just felt like a rip off to me.

You can personalize the wrapper of a giant candy bar. It makes a terrific gift or souvenir. You choose the type of candy then the wrapper (Happy Birthday with a cupcake graphic or NY skyline or many other choices). Then you can take your own picture and add it to the design and add a line of text. They print... More

Every conceivable Hershey chocolate is on display and available for sale here. Not sure why you would buy anything here that you could buy in your hometown, but I guess that is why they are in business. Also, why would you come to NYC and buy anything that is available in your hometown for much less money. Maybe international visitors.... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
