If you’re thinking of planning a summer road trip but aren’t sure where to go, you may want to consider Hershey’s Chocolate World in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

The store just added a handful of new experiential offerings and product launches that will only be available for the summer. Along with permanent attractions like Hershey’s largest candy store, the free Chocolate Tour and a Create Your Own Candy Bar factory experience, new additions include exclusive treats and the chance to build your own 1-pound Reese’s cup!

The new Reese’s Stuff Your Cup experience begins Memorial Day Weekend and costs $14.95. First, you start with a 1-pound Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. You will watch as it gets filled with fresh peanut butter. Then, you can choose from more than 10 different mix-ins to make the ultimate Peanut Butter Cup.

You will also be able to buy Hershey’s Ice Cream Shoppe Bars, which made their debut in Canada last year. The bars cost $1.85 and are inspired by ice cream flavors, including Strawberries ‘N’ Crème, Cookies ‘N’ Mint and Sprinkles ‘N’ Crème.
