Sweet Hershey, PA Treats to Celebrate National Dessert Day

This holiday was made to be celebrated in Hershey The Sweetest Place On Earth

It's hard to avoid indulging while you're in Hershey, PA. But, why would you even WANT to avoid it? Hershey is the "town built on chocolate" and has a sweet history. Between our restaurants and Hersheypark, you're sure to find a treat to please your palate.

The Hotel Hershey

Earlier this year The Hotel Hershey welcomed Chef's Market, an all-day café featuring an array of tasty offerings for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time. On a daily basis, Chef Cher and her team of talented pastry chefs create masterpieces that are showcased at Chef's Market. From chocolatey treats, handmade gelato (yes, handmade onsite at The Hotel!), carrot cake slices, cupcakes, cookies and so much more, it's a feast for the eyes.

Also not to be missed are the desserts at Harvest, including "Ooey Gooey" Cookie Pie and Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake!


Sweet treats can also be found on the Trevi 5 and room service menus. And if you like your sweets with a bite, try one of our Signature Hershey's Martinis at Iberian Lounge, including the new Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Martini!

All the restaurants across Hershey Lodge feature sweet treats including Skillet S'mores Fondue at Fire & Grain, Take 5 Banana Tart at Revelry and ice cream treats at Cocoa Beanery and Cocoa Cabana.
