Calling all chocolate lovers! The odds are that if you’re a real choco-fanatic you’ve at least heard of the Hershey’s Chocolate World in Niagara Falls. And if you’ve never been IRL, it’s every bit as delicious as they say. From classic chocolate bars bigger than your head to baked goods and chocolatey drinks, you can taste it all at this real-life Wonka factory of a place.
From the moment you walk through the enormous four-storey-tall chocolate bar doors, you’re enveloped in sweet, sugary smells and chocolaty wonders to feast your eyes on.
There’s something almost comical about the giant bottles of chocolate syrup and peanut butter cups you could hide behind.
And you can’t forget the iconic five-pound chocolate bar.
Who wants to split one?
While these novelty-sized snacks are pretty amazing, we think the best part of this whole place is the bakery counter.
Here, you can taste delicious fudge in all different flavours, huge cookies, and cupcakes topped with ever Hershey treat you can imagine.
Big, juicy strawberries dipped and drizzled in milk, white, and dark chocolate. Yeah, they’ve got those too.
Thirsty? How about a wild chocolate milkshake or hot chocolate to wash it all down?
So, yeah, it's time to get chocolate-wasted.
Another highlight of this chocolate paradise is its proximity to the actual falls.
Imagine sipping triple-chocolate milkshakes on a sunny day next to one of the best waterfalls in Ontario?
Or even admiring a frozen winter waterfall with a cozy hot chocolate to keep you toasty and warm.
Sounds like perfection, really.
With merch, giant Hershey characters, and so many other treats to fill out the 7,000-square-foot interior, you’ll feel like you’re in a whole other chocolate universe.
Honestly, this place is perfect for a cute date or spontaneous road trip with the besties.
Just bring your stretchy pants.
