Who's Your Pick for This Year's Chocolate Sculpture?
Last February, for the first time ever, Hershey's Chocolate World Attraction debuted a life-sized sculpture crafted entirely out of Hershey's Chocolate. The work of art was a 200-pound, 6-foot tall Hershey's Product Character, who was on display during the month-long, town-wide Chocolate-Covered February celebration.
This year, guests get to help choose who the sculpture will be! It will again be fashioned out of chocolate, so naturally, two of the contenders are characters representing chocolate candy favorites - Reese and Kiss. The third is Milton S. Hershey, whose legacy as the founder of The Hershey Company began with his mission to make people happy - and so he did with chocolate.
From now through December 1, cast your vote online or at Hershey's Chocolate World for your favorite! The winner will serve as the inspiration for Pennsylvania-based artists Jim Victor and Marie Pelton as they design and build the sculpture during December and January. It will then be unveiled at the beginning of Chocolate-Covered February and again on display for the full month!
