Actually-Hershey operates a massive plant in West Hershey. The old plant that they are tearing down used to be a "bean to bar" factory-raw cocoa beans came in, were processed into chocolate liquor-and then that was processed into candy. Eventually, a new plant in West Hershey was built and gradually, more and more moved there. Over the years, Hershey then outsourced most of the chocolate making process, and (I just found this out last year) no longer roasts and grinds their own chocolate-they outsource the chocolate liquor from other companies and then process it into chocolate and candy bars.
There USED to be a video online inside of the West Hershey plant, the modern one they use now, but the video was apparently pulled from being online. I did find this one, of the classic factory, though:
And as recently as 2008 when they started closing plants, you could actually tour the real factories in Oakdale, CA and in Smith's Falls, Ontario...the one in Ontario looked very interesting:

I was going by their website.....it is Six Flags after all.
Life is a lemon and I want my money back????
