A few months back on my trip to Las Vegas, I was hit with a major flight departure delay due to the weather. So, instead of leaving at 3PM, as planned, I wasn’t able to leave until around midnight.
I could have looked at it as a bummer, or I could have embraced the opportunity to see more of Vegas. And, you know me. I chose the latter!
I chose to haul my luggage with me and look like a complete weirdo walking down the streets of Vegas to explore a few sites that I previously didn’t have time to visit – starting with Hershey’s Chocolate World located at 3790 Las Vegas Blvd. South, Las vegas, NV.
So, I hauled my bags, hit for a Lyft, and was on my way.
When the Lyft driver dropped me off at the New York New York hotel, I was in aww. It was totally beautiful, both the hotel and Hershey’s Chocolate World. This attraction brings two American icons to life – HERSHEY’S Chocolate and the New York City skyline.
Have a look for yourself!
After venturing through each floor, enjoying a few samples along the way, and purchasing my own Hershey’s Kisses from the huge wall of chocolate – I decided that I had to tell you 3 Things Not to Miss at Hershey’s Chocolate World.
Do not miss the Hershey’s Character Photo Op outside of Hershey’s Chocolate World. They look so real, but they aren’t. So, have fun and take lots of fun photos! You can even share your experience using #ChocolateWorld to be featured on their website!
Do not miss the HERSHEY’S KISSES Flavor Wall inside of the store. You can fill your own bag and combine as many flavors as you wish. What adds even more fun is that the lever actually works to dispense your candy!
Do not miss the Hershey’s Statue of Liberty. That’s right! Chocolate Liberty was created in 2014 and is made of all chocolate! How fun!
Did you know that Chocolate Liberty is made from over 500 pounds of Hershey’s chocolate?! Wow! That’s a lot of chocolate.
Hershey’s Kisses are definitely my favorite candy. I can get my chocolate fix with just a few little kisses without having the pressure of eating an entire bar of chocolate, you know?
For those who enjoy Reese’s or Kit Kats – they have that, too. I just forgot to mention it.
But, what’s even more interesting is the Hershey’s Company, itself. Did you know the Hershey’s Company is launching Cocoa For Good, a strategy for sustainable cocoa? They are investing half a billion dollars by 2030 to nourish children, elevate youth, build prosperous communities, and preserve natural ecosystems. That’s a cause I’ll support any day!
