Most of the time, we cover Hershey’s Chocolate World news but these treats were too good to ignore. Whether you’re headed to Christmas Candylane or not, there are plenty of sweets and eats to keep you warm this holiday season.
Let’s start with sweets as there are plenty of awesome drinks and frankly, that’s the highlight. If you’re headed to Simply Chocolate, you can get a warm banana bread sandwich which features two delicious slices of banana bread with ice cream in the middle.
Then at the Overlook Food Court, you can grab something from the Loaded Baked Potato Bar with lots of toppings to add. You can also grab a slice of the Turkey Gobbler Pizza which is a mashed potato-based slice topped with turkey, corn, and cheese. It’s finished off with a side of cranberry sauce and gravy.
Christmas Candylane at Hersheypark is a foodie’s dream.
Heading to the Milton’s Ice Cream Parlor? You can enjoy a holiday sandwich which is made on Sourdough bread and includes roasted turkey, stuffing, gravy, and cranberry sriracha. It can be paired with the Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwich which is gingerbread ice cream sandwiched between two warm Snickerdoodle cookies.
The last of the savory options are from Berks which are two hot dogs. First is the Chilly Hot Dog which is a footlong hot dog with chili and cornbread. Then there’s the Holiday Hot Dog which is a footlong hot dog with cranberry sriracha spread, turkey, stuffing, and gravy. I couldn’t think of anything more appropriate for the holidays than that.
Moving on to the drinks, let’s talk about getting boozy at Hersheypark. I might have some experience with that because those drinks are amazing! At 1906 Brews, you can enjoy three options including Frostbite which is Firefly Spiked Lemonade with Blue Raspberry Rein, Santa’s Hat which is a Spiked Cherry Slush with whipped cream and a cheery and lastly, Jingle Juice which is Sour Green Apple with Blue Raspberry. For the final boozy offering, Hersheypark Christmas Candylane has a Fireside Cider which is Hot Cider with Fireball Malt.
As for those who are looking for some non-alcoholic offerings, there are some milkshakes to enjoy which are the Frozen Hot Chocolate King Size Shake which is a frozen hot chocolate shake with toppings such as chocolate dipped pretzels, sprinkles, and even, a brown butter rice Krispy treat. For all my Reese’s fans, there’s a Reese’s King Size Shake which is chocolate peanut butter shake topped with a white chocolate-dipped peanut butter cookie. Lastly, there’s a Caramel Apple Pie King Size Shake, an apple-flavored shake topped with an apple-filled cookie.
If those epic shakes aren’t your style, maybe you’ll enjoy some Hot Chocolate from Simply Chocolate. Ultimately, I’m saving the best for last as there are so many and they all sound great. First up is the Simply Hot Chocolate with hot chocolate topped with chocolate whipped cream, vanilla, and chocolate chips, and a chocolate crackle cookie.
For those craving thin mints, there’s a Peppermint Hot Chocolate which is finished off with whipped cream, mint candies, and a candy cane sugar cookie. Next up is Reese’s Hot Chocolate which is topped with chocolate whipped cream, Reese’s Pieces Candy, and a peanut butter blossom cookie. Then there’s Toasted Marshmallow Hot Chocolate. You can enjoy it with whipped cream, mini marshmallows, and a smoked cinnamon graham cracker cookie.
No matter if you’re headed on a solo trip to Hersheypark Christmas Candylane, make sure to go on an empty stomach. If you’re headed there, I’d love to know which items are on your foodie bucket list!
