On a recent trip to Hershey Pennsylvania we took the "Great American Chocolate Tour" at the Hershey's Chocolate World. This was so much fun!
This is not the actual chocolate factory. I guess they used to give tours of the actual working factory years and years ago. This is a simulated tour. You start by walking though what is supposed to be like a forest where cocoa beans are grown. The walls and the TV screens tell you of the chocolate making process which starts with the cocoa bean and ends in delicious Hershey's chocolate! Then you load into a moving vehicle, which is supposed to represent the cocoa bean and you are taken through the whole process. You even go through the roaster! The whole time you can smell chocolate. It is very neat and educational and fun!
The whole tour is free and you can go through as many times as you want! And each time you are given a free sample of some type of Hershey candy. This time is was the new Hershey Bliss. Very yummy!
