Since I live in the New York City metropolitan area, I tend to pass through Times Square relatively often.
This past week, as the holidays kicked into high gear, the area was teaming with tourists, and I mean, teaming! I felt like Tim Conway playing the old man, trying to make my way through throngs of people. Finally, I had to step out into the street a bit to move at all. I decided to stop and check out the action at the M&M flagship and the Hershey’s store and comparison shop.
My first stop was the M&M store, which was overflowing with customers. There are colored candies and merchandise everywhere, which makes for a mouth-watering display.
I think the core attraction is the wall of M&M dispensers which carry candies in rainbow hues, for customers to make their own personalized assortment.
Things at the Hershey’s store were a lot more traditional and low key, but still super fun.
Visitors can literally put their name in lights on a neon marquis-like sign or personalize your very own chocolate kiss.
