7 Best Summer Desserts at Hersheypark

No trip to the Park is complete without sweet treats!

There is no shortage of sweet treats in The Sweetest Place On Earth this summer! If your visit to Hershey, Pa. includes a day of riding roller coasters at Hersheypark, we highly recommend treating yourself to one (or more!) of these seven snacks found throughout our 121-acre amusement park. 

King Size Shake

These mouthwatering shakes are sure to satisfy chocolate lovers’ taste buds. We have three new King Size Shakes this summer inspired by Reese’s Cupfusion. You can choose from a Cupfusion shake with a peanut butter tart on top or a Mint the Merciless shake featuring a chocolate mint roll. If you like gummies, be sure to try the Slither N’ Squirm shake that is topped with a chocolate cupcake with gummy worms! You can find these frozen delights at Simply Chocolate dessert shop. We also have some other milkshake varieties, including a Strawberries & Cream shake found at The Swirl!


You can’t miss out on this one-of-a-kind mixology drink experience during your Hersheypark trip. BBLz concoctions contain one of Pepsi’s signature soft drinks and so much more. The Whipscream Sundae, for example, includes Pepsi's cherry AND vanilla flavors, Hershey’s Chocolate & Caramel Syrup, ice cream foam, maraschino cherries and last but not least, sprinkles! Is your mouth watering yet? Find BBLz in the Kissing Tower Hill area.

Dipped Dessert

Our dipped desserts fulfill your cookie dough cravings. We offer a create-your-own snack at the Turkey Hill Creamery in the Pioneer Food Court. You can pick from edible brownie batter or peanut butter cookie dough and add a variety of toppings to make it your own.

Funnel Cake

Whether you like fruit, chocolate or ice cream on your funnel cakes, Founder’s Way Funnel Cake has a full menu of fantastic fried delights to satisfy your sweet tooth. NEW for Summer 2019 is the Reese’s Cupfusion Fundae, which is inspired by our all-new interactive gaming ride located right next to this stand. This delectable delight contains chocolate ice cream with your favorite Reese’s toppings over a piping hot funnel cake. If you are looking for a smaller yet tasty delicacy, try the Fried Oreo or the Fried Peanut Butter Cup!

Kettle Corn

Hersheypark’s Kettle Corn is the perfect combination of salty and sweet. You can smell the iconic snack wafting throughout Hersheypark. Located in The Boardwalk and Founder’s Way areas of the Park, this treat serves as the perfect grab-and-go snack. It also makes for a tasty treat during the car ride home!


Need more of a chocolate peanut butter fix? You can indulge in layers of chocolate cake, peanut butter icing and crushed peanut butter cups with the trifle. This dessert is available at Spring Creek Smokehouse. The best part? You can keep the mason jar that the trifle is served in as a souvenir!

Ice Cream

If you want a plain, simple yet still delicious treat, there is no shortage of regular ice cream throughout Hersheypark.

BONUS: Did you know that we offer an All-Day Dining Deal? This means that you can dine throughout the day at more than 10 locations for one low price. Dining Deal available through September 29, 2019.
