“Not worth time!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

So, when you hear that this is 16 story Hershey store, you are thinking "Can't wait to go there". When you approach the store in Time Square with its huge outside decor, you think "OMG, cant wait to get inside". And then you enter this little tiny store, did I say tiny, and the let down is something to write a review about. Really, this is Time Square, New York City people. This store should be magnificent and grand. We go to Hershey PA all they time and have seen what Hershey can do. I would recommend they take a look at this and make some major expansions.

“Its not as nice as Las Vegas”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

Its not as nice as Las Vegas because its smaller and has less merchandise. We did get free candy and a new flavor. I think thats great! Ne sure to visit if you pass by but dont make a special trip.

“$15 for 4 packs - great for souvenirs!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

This is a great place to grab some Reese's to bring home to your family. Walgreen was selling a pack at $6.99 and thus this seemed to be a cheaper option. Also, if you compare against a $3.99 keychain that your cousin may junk away, a pack of Reese's seems more useful :)

“Chocolate lovers gather”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Fun to be in Times Square and see the glitz of the Hershey's store. This is especially wonderful for kids because it's fun to just be there. It's nothing special in terms of tours or anything, but it's still fun. It's a store so expect that this is what it is...they give you a piece of chocolate, and it entices you to buy something...if you have kids, especially..take them in here.

“Smaller than it looks from outside.....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

I expected floors and floors of merchandise and candies. Instead, it was cramped and limited. The prices for customized candy assortments were ridiculous. Definite tourist trap.
