Just ahead of the Memorial Day holiday weekend, I enjoyed a sneak peek visit at The Chocolatier, the new restaurant located in Chocolatetown, just outside of Hersheypark's entrance gates. That's right, you can enjoy the amazing creations at this new dining experience without a park ticket, and it will be open seven days a week all year long!
The Chocolatier is a fun-to-table restaurant featuring family favorite options such as hand-held sandwiches, salads, and shareable plates. Many of their offerings are infused with chocolate or another traditional HERSHEY's flavor. The Chocolatetown burger was amazing with the thick-cut bacon, and the Reese's Peanut Butter Hummus was a fun way to start the sampling! See the full menu here, including a special chicken and waffles entree.
Whatever you eat for dinner, make sure to save room for dessert! I can see this place quickly becoming my kids' go-to choice for birthday dinners and special celebrations and you'll quickly see why. FOUR different signature milkshakes in chocolate, strawberry, peanut butter, and birthday cake flavors also include a full-size sweet as part of your milkshake. On my visit, I tried (ok, ate every bite!) the triple chocolate brownie mousse cake that will be hard to beat.
The Chocolatier also has specialty cocktails, including a Reese's Cupfusion Old-Fashioned, The Frozen Chocolatier, Green Apple Martini, and more.
Your family will enjoy all of these culinary offerings in booths resembling the Comet or Tilt-a-Whirl, with a bar that includes replica carrousel horses, or out on the patio with never-before-experienced views of Hersheypark!
