Super small store

Tips for Families

Definitely go if you are in Times Square. The outside of the building is really cool, but don't expect a lot once inside. It's only one room and it's always busy. The giant chocolate Statue of Liberty's are great and you can buy a small chocolate lollipop version at the checkout.

This store is in tourists central and is a tourists trap. I do not understand why tourists would  buy chocolate in NYC  but they do. For me there is one reason I go here. They have  a chocolate candle that smells exactly like someone is baking som...

I love the chocolate, but theres never a time when you can come in and not see a good 60-80 people in the store with you. It's such a tourist trap it's unreal. I like the pillows mostly, and used to have a cute Reeses o...

So, I usually avoid Times Square like the plague but I found myself strolling through one day and I saw this awesome Hershey's display and what looked like a HUGE candy store. I LOVE candy, and I was fully ready to splurge on all types of goodies at this place. The display is so huge, like 100ft tall for real. I was just picturing the store like Willy Wonka's with like 8,021 rooms just filled with delicious candy. Well, let me tell you, I was in for a major disappointment. This place is literally smaller than your average corner store in Manhattan. Not to mention the fact that they really don't even have a good candy selection in here. You can definitely find more stuff at the movie theater and it would be c...

um. the sign outside really drew me in with all the lights and giant candy bars. inside is a little kids heaven though. rows ans rows of all the sweets from hersheys you can imagine. including a GIANT Hersheys kiss you can buy for youre chocoholic special someone. its like the size of my head. GAH. mmm. downstairs mostly sales apparel. like shirts, hats, souvenirs. now. upstairs is where most of the m&m are. they have an entire room with floor to ceiling tubes filled with a kaleidoscope of m&m colors. All the tints and shades you can shake a stick at. there was a yellow m&m mascot there. i dont know but, i find mascots very creppy. even now. i KNOW there are real people inside but if i cant see their faces i...

Ahhh, the smell of chocolate hits you the second you walk in this place. Its a really small store so expect some pushing. The chocolate is of course over priced but wha...

Look but don't touch!  *slaps hand* Don't come in here if you're hungry. I'd be willing to bet that they pump this place full of chocolate fumes just to make your mouth water.  Probably cheaper to buy a chocolate bar around the corner from one of the pagodas. If you're a tourist in Times Square this isn't a bad stop to stop in to get out of the cold.  It's warm, smells great, and packed full of people. Have to say if you're a fan of strange candy related paraphernalia then you'll be much happier heading over to Dylan's Candy Bar http://www.yelp.com/bi...           It's a little ways up... but it's near Serendipity, CPK, and some great shopping.  Fun for kids and not in the heap of the square.

Yes yes, this place is touristy and crowded and money-sucking and filled with overpriced kitschy crap nobody needs, but honestly, what do you expect from a store in Times Square covered in electric chocolate bars?  It's obvious what you're getting yourself into. I, for one, think it's great fun. My mom used to work for Hersheys and now works for M&M/Mars.  Everytime my family comes to New York, she and I do two things: 1) Drag my dad down 5th Ave. and make him buy us crap that makes us look thin. 2) Drag my dad to the Hershey's and M&M stores and make him buy us crap that makes us get fat. In terms of indulging that small part of you that enjoys acting like an airhead tourist, you could do much worse than th...
