Hersheypark Chocolatier Restaraunt in Hershey, Pennsylvania

Hersheypark Chocolatier Restaurant: Delicious Desserts, Cocktails and more!

You may be wondering, is the Hersheypark Chocolatier Restaurant worth a visit?

The other day, I was at Hersheypark waiting in line for Jolly Rancher Remix and a question came to mind that surfaces to the noggins of many when visiting a theme park.

“I am getting a bit hungry, what am I going to eat?”

I’d forgotten to grab breakfast on my way to Hersheypark and with two rides in, I was getting peckish, despite stopping at the main gate Starbucks for my Chocolatetown Frappuccino.

As I looked through the Hersheypark app, I decided to look up Hersheypark Chocolatier Restaurant just for kicks to see if they had any day of availability.

The restaurant is fairly popular so I knew the chances were slim. But lo and behold, they had two 3 p.m. reservations for that day and I decided to treat myself to a first-time visit!

So I got on Jolly Rancher Remix and Stormrunner, then hightailed it to the restaurant.

I know you have to be intrigued at this new addition to Hersheypark, so I won’t let you wait any longer! Let’s sink our teeth into this latest fare!
