Hershey's Chocolate Factory Tour

This is part of Hershey's Chocolate World. In addition to the factory tour, there is a 4D movie experience, a chocolate tasting class, an entertaining guided trolley tour around Hershey, and a build-your-own custom chocolate bar session. The Factory tour is free -- all the other experiences have a fee, but if you purchase three of them you get free parking! Very easy to spend the whole day here.

Chocolate World

At the end of the Chocolate World tour guests are given a sample of a Hershey brand chocolate. These samples often have peanuts. Ask for a non-peanut candy if you have an allergy. They usually will give you a plain Hershey bar instead.

Fantastic 3d movie and loads of free chocolate. Don't bring the kids unless you have tons of wipes.
