Guests with Autism Spectrum Disorder and other sensory-related sensitivities, and their families and caregivers, are invited to a morning of chocolate fun at The Hershey Story. In addition to molding a chocolate bar, participants will experience what it was like to work in the factory at the turn of the 20th century by hand-wrapping and weighing Hershey’s Kisses, and sorting and packing chocolate bars. Additional hands-on activities will include tasting and grinding cocoa nibs, and touching real cocoa beans and cocoa pods. Activities will take place in the classroom. A calming room will be available. Museum Experience included.
