We like to think of the holiday season at HERSHEY’S CHOCOLATE WORLD as one big heartwarming hug. When you can make memories with scarf-clad HERSHEY’S Characters. Take photos by a house made of candy. Or shop for sweet stocking stuffers while sipping minty milkshakes or melted hot chocolates. So join us, enjoy some together time – because that’s the most heartwarming gift of all.

Our best tips to make the most of your holiday visit:

  1. Mark your calendar for festive events
    There’s no shortage of things to do in Hershey during the holidays! Decorate ornaments and cookies with Mrs. Claus, board a holiday-themed trolley, and check out our HERSHEY’S Holiday Chocolate House. For our 50th anniversary, we’ve created our biggest, sweetest house to date, complete with a special Santa photo op in a tour ride sleigh! Our chocolate-y attractions offer even more memory-making, but be sure to book tickets online in advance, and consider a bundle for even bigger savings.

  2. Don't miss all things Grinch!
    The man in green is back and we swear his heart has grown three sizes with all the love he’s spreading here at Chocolate World. Pose for photos with him in our Character Corner and snag some themed mugs and socks (among other gifts). And while HERSHEY’S KISSES Milk Chocolates with Grinch Foils may be the traditional flavor, let’s be real - they’ll be the cutest.things.ever in your candy bowl.

  3. Try the latest candy flavors in a fresh new way
    Loving the new REESE’S Big Cup with Caramel? Sample them in this season’s new milkshake inspiration! (The trio of holiday specials also features DOTS Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel and KIT KAT® DUOS Mint flavors.) Chillier days call for HERSHEY’S Melted Hot Chocolate and ridiculously cute cupcakes, or perhaps our new Hershey-inspired chili with warm cornbread. And what doesn’t say happy holidays like a HERSHEY’S GOLDEN ALMOND Martini (among other decadent drinks for ages 21+)? Get a sneak peek of our full menu.

  4. Check off your list with chocolate-y gifts
    ‘Tis the season for cozy…check out our new super soft blankets, and pair them with hoodies, pillows or socks. Games, books, balls, the most adorable fuzzy friends – all unique gifts for children found exclusively on our shelves. And we know even the kids at heart in your life need a little love too…how about candy-inspired candles, collectible ornaments, and the ever-favorite HERSHEY’S GOLDEN ALMOND Bars?
