Mazzoli Ice Cream in Hershey, PA 21 Jul 2014, 7:00 am

 

MAZZOLI ICE CREAM

 

 

Since the mid-fifties, Mazzoli’s has been producing some of the area’s finest gelatos..

Founded in 1956 by Mr. and Mrs. Fred Mazzoli of Hershey.  From the late 1920′s through the early 1940′s, Mr. Mazzoli served as Milton S. Hershey’s dairy chef at The Hotel Hershey and the Hershey Creamery..he and Mr. Hershey worked closely to bring new products, flavors and desserts to the mid-state.

After Fred Mazzoli passed away, another family bought the home and the little shop tucked into the rear of the property and continues making gelato from the original recipes.  Gelato is as good as it gets..with lower fat content and less air than ice cream, it produces a more intense flavor.  Try the Spumoni and the Tortoni, two Italian staples.  They also have different special flavors available at any given time so it’s best to check with them via telephone 717-533-2252 or via their Facebook page. This week they have handmade gelato di melone (cantelope gelato), raspberry sorbetto and pistachio ice cream.

Hersheypark Insider Tips, 2014 17 Jul 2014, 7:00 am

 

HERSHEYPARK INSIDER TIPS

2014

 

With summer in full swing and the possibility of a trip to Hersheypark in your near future, if you haven’t been to the park before there are some hints that may just make your fantastic visit even more fantastic!

Maybe the best idea ever…The Preview Plan.  With your next day’s ticket, you can enjoy 2 1/2 hours prior to the park closing free.  For example, if you arrive Sunday evening after 7:30 pm and purchase or present your tickets for Monday, there are no additional charges.  Also, pay for parking that evening and there is no charge for the next day’s parking.  This is a wonderful way to scope out the park and plan your strategy for the next day!

Another good deal…Hersheypark Meal Tickets.  With over twenty-five different locations, including vegetarian options, you can save up to 25% and choose the time and place for your refreshment break…sometimes it can be difficult to choose between another coaster ride or taking time out for something to munch.

Love games?  Discount Game Vouchers can be purchased at Hospitality Services located just inside the main gate.  For $15 you will receive $29 dollars worth of vouchers for 13 games located throughout the park.

For more great ideas and tips be sure to check the website …..and make the most of your visit to Hersheypark!
