I often travel to theme parks for the snacks. Sure rides are fun, but I take snacking seriously, and Hersheypark has some of the best snacks I’ve had! Hersheypark and Chocolate World often have delicious seasonal snacks that come and go, but these are the best Hersheypark snacks that I have to eat (and drink) every time I visit Hershey, PA!
5 Best Hersheypark Snacks
There are A LOT of Hersheypark snacks that could have made this list. I attempt to try one or two new snacks every trip, but I keep coming back to the same ones, because they’re just so good. Even if you’re not a chocolate fan, there’s plenty for you to eat! And if you are a chocolate fan, well welcome to the Sweetest Place on Earth!
Chickie’s & Pete’s Crabfries
The best Chickie’s & Pete’s stand is over by the Boardwalk in Hersheypark. I didn’t discover these until way too late. All those Hershey trips and no crabfries? It’s a travesty.
If you don’t like Old Bay seasoning, then you probably won’t like these, but if you do, well get your money out. The cheese sauce it comes with is divine, so don’t forget to dip them!
The giant milkshake craze is sometimes ridiculous, but often delicious. I’ve tried a few of the King Shakes at Simply Chocolate, and like the ones with the chocolate shake base the best. Take a look at the descriptions and see which most appeals to you. These are definitely shareable. My favorite is the Slither N’ Squirm King Size Shake. It’s like getting 5 desserts in one.
When I first saw these, I thought they would be way too sweet and there’s no way I’d like them. I was wrong. They were refreshing! Some do border on the ‘too-sweet-for-me’ taste, but my kids loved them!
Plus it’s an experience to press a button and watch the plastic ball/drink container come down, and then you take it over to the counter to watch them make your creation!
The Whipscream Sundae is my personal favorite, because I like the the flavors of cherry and vanilla mixed with cola. Plus it looks so cute like a miniature sundae. Points for creativity and presentation!
Reese’s Cupfusion Fundae
I’m not going to pretend like this isn’t heavy, because it is! But it’s wonderful, too. This is definitely shareable, because it’s so rich. I have a soft spot for funnel cakes at theme parks, so then when you add a whole bunch of toppings, even better! The flavor combination is fabulous, and you can find it at Founder’s Way Funnel Cake.
The one downside is that the ice cream makes the bottom soggy, so it’s not quite as good at the end as it is at the beginning. Reese’s Cupfusion Fundae is a funnel cake base topped with chocolate and peanut butter ice cream, Reeses Pieces, and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups. It’s peanut butter heaven!
Peanut Butter Blossom at Chocolate World
Ok, so I’m making you walk a little bit for this one, but it’s worth it. I’ve been eating the Peanut Butter Blossom at Hershey’s Chocolate World for years. Sometimes if we’d ever drive by Hershey on a road trip, I’d make the family stop at Chocolate World for one of these cookies.
It’s a soft peanut butter cookie with a Reeses Peanut Butter cup in the center. It’s even better with a cup of milk. I’ll buy extras to eat the next day at home. If you’re a peanut butter fan, definitely try this.
Hershey’s Chocolate World is steps away from the entrance to Hersheypark and you can find this at the bakery or in the food court.
