4th Annual Chocolate Sculpture Unveiled

Hershey's Chocolate World pays homage to tour ride favorites

The girls are back! That is, the original trio of cows from the iconic Hershey’s Chocolate Tour ride, who have been carved out of 300 pounds of Hershey’s Milk Chocolate. In what has become an annual Chocolate-Covered February tradition, Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction recently unveiled its life-sized sculpture, honoring the farm-fresh milk that makes Hershey’s chocolate so special.

Gabby, Olympia and Harmony retired from the tour ride in 2016, so welcoming this beloved group back after four years was a special challenge for Pennsylvania-based food artists Jim Victor and Marie Pelton. It’s the first time they had three unique personalities to capture within the 6-foot sculpture. And, unlike the prior three years’ models (Hershey’s Character, Milton Hershey, and Reese’s Character), the texture had to capture that of a soft, plush toy!

The sculpture will be on display through March 1, so come meet the girls in person while you can! Other sweet experiences include Chocolate-Covered February parades and the all-new Chocolate Tasting Experience. Plus, the month-long celebration also continues throughout the town of Hershey.
