Roll up your sleeves and get ready to have fun at Hershey’s sweetest hands-on activity — the Chocolate Lab.

Chocolate LabInspired by Milton Hershey’s own candy-making apprenticeship and his flair for experimentation, the Chocolate Lab explores the distinctive qualities of chocolate through playful, hands-on experiences and interactive demonstrations.

The Chocolate Lab offers 45-minute, daily classes for guests to try their hand at chocolate pouring and decorating, and of course when it’s over, taste their delicious take-home chocolate creations. Guests can also learn about the ingredients used in chocolate-making and the refinement process.
