Have Fun Learning How Chocolate is Made

The Hershey's Chocolate Tour Ride in Hershey, PA is a FREE tour and a wonderful way to learn about where chocolate comes from.

Once you board the indoor trolley, the ride takes you through a simulated HERSHEY'S Chocolate Factory that shows you the entire chocolate-making process. From harvesting the cocoa beans in the tropical rain forest where cocao beans grow to wrapping you favorite sweet treats. You can even smell the chocolate as the cocoa beans make their way through the mock manufacturing process.

It is truly a fun and informative ride that makes learning about the chocolate-making process very easy. Ashley even wanted to go on it a second time and had lots of questions!

After the ride, Ashley became an official chocolatier at HERSHEY'S Kissworks attraction where she got to package her very own HERSHEY'S KISSES chocolates. She even had her picture taken for her very own badge as an official chocolatier!

What a fun way to learn about how chocolate is made! And it's FREE!


  1. How fun! We love visiting Hershey and going through Chocolate World too!
