Since we couldn't do any of the activities, we just walked around and looked at all the candy and merchandise and enjoyed delicious, delicious treats. I got this amazing peanut butter cup cookie that was gigantic and probably had five days worth of calories in it. And on top of that, I got a chocolate peanut butter milkshake that was like drinking frozen Reese's cups. It was the best. They brought out freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and I really wanted one since they were fresh out of the oven, but I had my mind set on that amazing peanut butter cup cookie.
It was completely overwhelming to walk through this place. I mean...they have literally every kind of candy made by Hershey for sale in all kinds of quantities and forms. They had every flavor and kind of Hershey Kisses, every kind of Reese's candy, all different sizes of Hershey bars and Kisses. It was insane. Not to mention all of the trinkets and clothing and merchandise they had. It took a while for Nadia and I to decide what we wanted to get. I ended up spending about $20-$30 on chocolate. Yup. Happened.
After we overdosed on chocolate and sugar, we headed to the little downtown area where the street lamps are all shaped like Hershey Kisses. It's so adorable! Nadia freaked out when she first saw them...hahaha. My mom had told me about them since she went to Hershey when she was a kid. The streets are also cutely named and part of Chocolate Ave. is paved brown, which I thought was really cool.
We went into the Hershey Story museum, but didn't actually look at anything. We just went to the bathroom and went to the gift shop where they had chocolate-scented pens for sale! I didn't get one, though. I did get a big Hershey bar at the Chocolate World though because I just had to get a classic Hershey bar from Hershey! :)
