HERSHEY, Pa. -

The flagship Hershey's Chocolate World attraction drew more than two million people this summer, a record for the facility that opened 40 years ago.

Hershey's said attendance at the Chocolate World in Hershey was up eight percent over last year.

The company said it sold more than one million pounds of chocolate there, and about 175,000 people created their own custom candy bars.

Hershey's Chocolate Worlds are also located in New York City, Chicago, Niagara Falls, New York, Singapore, Shanghai and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Another is planned for Las Vegas.
