Roll up your sleeves and get ready to have fun at Hershey’s sweetest hands-on activity — the Chocolate Lab.
I’ve partnered with Hershey Entertainment and Resorts to share the latest happenings in Hershey!
Whenever we visit Hershey, PA, we like to do something new! While we love going to Hershey Park or swimming at Water Works at the Hershey Lodge, it’s always fun to try a new activity.
This past visit, we made sure to stop over at the Hershey Story.
Tip: If you stay at a Hershey Resort property, you will receive free tickets to the Hershey Story!
It has been awhile since we visited the Hershey Story and I knew we had to check out the Chocolate Lab! We have made our own Chocolate Bars at Chocolate World but the Chocolate Lab takes that up a few notches!
The Chocolate Lab is a workshop where kids and families will learn about the ingredients used in chocolate-making, the refinement process, and some of the secrets of why Hershey’s chocolate is so delicious (not all of the secrets, though).
If you ever wanted to know more about the chocolate making process, you’ll learn that in the Chocolate Lab!
Did you know that chocolate starts out as a fruit? Our boys were excited to hear that one and are upping their fruit intake by eating chocolate!
The fun and informative family activity is lead by in-house chocolate gurus and lasts about 45 minutes.
Kids and adults will have a chance to roll up their sleeves and try their hand in chocolate pouring and decorating, and of course when it’s all over, taste their delicious take-home chocolate creations.
Watch out video of our creations in the Chocolate Lab!A few things you should know before heading to the Chocolate Lab:
- Children must be at least four years old to enter the Lab.
- Children under 13 must be accompanied by a paying adult.
- The Lab schedule is subject to change.
- Tickets are non-refundable.
- The Chocolate Lab is NOT allergen free. However, they do make every effort to exclude the use of tree and ground nuts.
Various class themes are available daily but seating is limited. Check their calendar for upcoming times and descriptions.
Chocolate Lab tickets may be purchased at The Hershey Story, on the day of the class only. It is recommended that you arrive 60 – 90 minutes before your desired class to purchase tickets, and then explore The Hershey Story before your Lab class begins!
