So, you might think in a town dubbed "Chocolatetown USA" that it's all chocolate, all the time. And then you see a headline like "Chocolate Covered February" and think, "How is that different from Chocolate Covered every other month of the year? It's CHOCOLATETOWN USA!" Well, it is different. In a decadent, delicious and not-just-desserty kind of way. See, there's a culinary art to chocolate, and February is a time when the hustle of Hershey's tourism season slows down just enough for the chefs to come out of the pastry kitchens to share that art with visitors.
Before we jump to the events, here's a quick video featuring one of the Hotel Hershey's signature cocktails - the HERSHEY'S Special Dark Chocolate Martini.
Since February is known for its romance, let's start with events geared toward couples. Not spoken for at the moment? These events are great for girlfriends too!
