Opening April 2, Milton's Ice Cream Parlor located in the new region of Hershey’s Chocolatetown is inspired by Mr. Hershey's early ventures in sweetness that came before his famous chocolate factory. Expert Ice Creamologists will craft custom creations from 100% local dairy house-made ice cream, Hershey’s candy toppings, decadent sauces, and more.

Opening April 2, The Sweeterie is an all-new confectionery kitchen located in the new region of Hershey’s Chocolatetown. Experience a curated collection of mouth-watering confections including chocolate-dipped treats, decadent desserts, signature hand-crafted fudge, and more.

The Chocolatier Restaurant, Bar + Patio will open on Memorial Day Weekend, with more sweet details to come. 

These additions will complete the $150 million transformational expansion of Hershey’s Chocolatetown. The 23-acre development is home to Candymonium, the tallest, fastest, longest and sweetest coaster at Hersheypark; an entirely reimagined arrival experience; all-new shopping; the first-ever Starbucks inside Hersheypark; and more.
