HERSHEY, Pa. (WHTM) — The song that has described “The Great American Chocolate Bar” for decades is coming back to Chocolate World!
Announced on Friday, Jan. 13, “The Great American Chocolate Bar” theme song that has been part of the visitors center and part of the tour ride for years has been reinvented, according to Hershey’s Chocolate World.
The song was reinvented with help from students and faculty from the Derry Township School District as well as Milton Hershey School. The visitors center said the song will be returning to the chocolate tour ride sometime in the spring of this year.
