Hershey’s World adds to Vegas’ chocolate offerings

LAS VEGAS >> A chocolate lover’s paradise featuring a giant, Hershey bar replica of the Empire State Building is now open on the Las Vegas Strip.

The two-story Hershey’s Chocolate World store debuted Tuesday at the New York-New York casino. It features a super-sized Reese’s peanut butter cup on its facade and an 800-pound replica of the Statue of Liberty carved out of milk chocolate.

The store is not the only place on the Strip where tourists can satisfy their sweet tooth. A four-level M&M’s World across the street is a shrine to rival company Mars’ signature candy.

The Bellagio is also home to a floor-to-ceiling chocolate fountain that’s certified as the world’s largest.

Hershey’s has similar stores in Times Square, Niagara Falls, Chicago, Singapore, Dubai and Shanghai.
