“Tourist Trap”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Not worth your time”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

This is definitely not a stop that is worth your time. Super small store, not very nice staff. The only great person was the person that greeted us at the front and gave us some free samples. We even agreed to be "chocolate makers" and told them what we wanted to out in our "toolbox" container, only to find out that the machine was broke. So in turn we got to watch the work place pieces of candy in a box. Not worth the money or time.

“Peanut Butter Cup heaven!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

This shop is amazing- everything you could ever wish from Hershey's and we came home to the UK loaded with goodies...peanut buttercup cushions, Easter eggs and more.
Was quite expensive but not as expensive as I thought it would be- we got four packs of little Easter eggs for $15 and you can't complain at that.
Only annoying thing was the staff- I know they're just doing the job but every 5 seconds it was 'hey y'all how ya doing?' once on one side of a pillar then the SAME GUY literally around the other side of the pillar!

“Free Gifts At Hershey's Time Square Store on Broadway!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

I went into NYC with two children ages 5 and 7. It was the 5yr olds birthday, from this experience I recommend you stopping in the HERSEY store for a free little treat.It is a small store, located on one of the corners of Broadway. When you enter they give you a small sample of chocolates and if you visit the back corner at the "mix your favorites" section they employee will give you a free paper Hershey's hat ( not that exciting but the kids loved it!) Many things to choose from, you can find a sale here or there but it is always better to ask any employee. They were all very friendly. You should expect that the regular priced items are a bit more expensive then the food store- you are in NYC after all.

-The weather was windy, wet and cold. So dress for the season.
