Treat your Foodies to Hershey

Few visitors will leave Hershey without sampling some chocolate. But if you have hard-core foodies in your group, the Hershey’s Entertainment and Resorts team can put together some special culinary packages that elevate their experiences beyond candy bars.

At the Hotel Hershey, the food and beverage staff offers special hands-on workshops for groups.

“A group can do a martini mixology class using chocolate,” said Rachel Dinbokowtiz, public relations specialist for Hershey Entertainment and Resorts. “They can make a martini with a Hershey Kiss in the middle or do a Reese’s martini. If a group is interested, we can customize the experience.”

For an even more immersive epicurean experience, take your group to Hershey for Chocolate-Covered February. This monthlong event is a destination-wide celebration of all things chocolate and features a number of high-end food opportunities.

“We have pairings with chocolate and wine or spirits,” Dinbokowitz said. “There’s a dessert buffet and chef demonstrations. They do both sweet and savory dishes with chocolate.”
