We also got no such candy at the end of the ride.

They used to do it back when the ride opened years ago. First it was a Reese's mini, then it was a sample of whatever their newest candy was (like Kissables) then they just stopped doing it.

Dear God... How have I missed those?

I'm heading back there at some point over the next couple of weeks. I know what just jumped to the top of my agenda! :br

Across from Reese's challenge options were:

Cookies and Cream (with ice cream sandwich on top)
Hershey's Chocolate (with a chocolate cupcake on top)
Reese's (with cheesecake on top)

all come with chocolate dipped pretzels, and glass rolled in frosting and ringed with chocolate/sprinkles/reeses pieces. . etc).
we got one of each in that pic :)

near the entrance, the options seemed to be:
Hershey's Chocolate
Apple Pie (with cinnamon buns on top, I think)
Strawberry Shortcake (with angel food cake on top)

Oh wow, that shake is ridiculous. :lmao:

Sucks that they stopped the free Reese's on Cup Challenge. They were giving them out when I was there a year ago. (Has it been a whole year already?)

Wow. I don't buy anything other than beer at parks, but that is definitely something I will make an exception for the next time I'm at Hershey.

^I'm with you Ed. However, we were so tempted, but we just couldn't let ourselves take the plunge on the delicious shakes. We did cave and get some signature cupcakes in Chocolate World. We'd seen them advertised on Facebook and they looked delicious. To be honest, they were kind of a let down.

I know I asked this before, but did anyone else feel like the Chocolate at Hershey in the resort, the park, and Chocolate World actually tasted better than when purchasing it elsewhere? I know it's really fresh, but we tried to be as objective as possible. We ate a couple free Hershey bars and Kisses that the resort gave us. We also sampled several of the miniatures in Chocolate World. Everything tasted smooth and melted in your mouth. We purchased a Hershey bar on the way home to test that theory and it just didn't have that melt in your mouth texture to it. It was probably in our heads, but we were pretty convinced at the time.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Those shakes are out of hand. 14 bucks (well worth it for the amount of stuff you get) and my 4 kids (2 teen boys and 2 younger girls) couldn't finish 1 that they were sharing. The flavors rotate at the stand near the carousel so you never know what will be offered there.

Glad they turned out well! I kept seeing "Turkey Hill" ice cream everywhere and not Hershey, so I never bought in since Turkey Hill is a Kroger brand ice cream.

The Rita's at Hershey was offering Italian ice flights (4 different flavors) and you could add custard for 10 cents! Yes. 10 cents.

I've had Rita's a bunch before, but they had unique flavors like Sweedish Fish, Hawaiian Punch, Passion Fruit, and Grape! They were all delicious.
