A temple to all things chocolate.
At New York-New York on the South Strip.
Chocolate - and lots of it - plus baked goods, sweets, Hershey themed merchandise, and more.
A little bit more expensive than what you'll pay for the same chocolate in your grocery store.
It's chocolate - check out everything!
Because you need a sugar rush.
This is not an attraction like in Pennsylvania - it's pretty much just a big retail store.
The Strip is a little sweeter now that the flagship Hershey's Chocolate World at New York-New York is giving people the sugar rushes they have been craving.
It's hard to miss the place - it's behind the giant 70-foot-tall Hershey's chocolate bar and giant Hershey's kisses attached to the front of the building. At more than 13,000 square feet across two levels it is one of the biggest Hershey's stores in the country and features pretty much everything having to do with chocolate or the brand. Don't expect just bags of candy, although they have plenty of that also. There's also a huge selection of other treats including cupcakes (York Peppermint or Reese's Pieces flavors by chance?), brownies, dipped fruit, fudge, and so much more that my head started to hurt. I sampled the double chocolate caramel brownie and a chocolate dipped strawberry and was very pleased with my choices.
Oh and of course don't forget about all of the logo merchandise with Hershey's or Reese's or whatever slapped on clothing, gifts, accessories, jewelry, and more.
Those expecting a theme park style experience like the one in Hershey, Pennsylvania will be disappointed; although there are a few opportunities to do things like customize your chocolate bars and a couple of chocolate sculptures (one of the Statue of Liberty and another of the Empire State Building) this is primarily a retail store and not an attraction.
But those bakery items elevate this particular store a notch above the places like M&M World and the World of Coca Cola right across the street in my opinion. I'll take another one of those brownies now, please.
Prices are ridiculous - you'll pay more for the exact same bag of candy here than you will at the supermarket down the street - but they probably don't have Hershey's chocolate coffee mugs, so whatever.
