(NAPSI)—Millions visit Hershey’s Chocolate World to sample chocolate treats, but fun foodies also flock to Pa.’s Hershey Harrisburg Region for ice cream, pies, salty snacks and fresh fruit.

Take the “Delightful Dessert Day Trip” throughout Amish Country in nearby Lancaster for samplings of local pies from whoopie to shoofly and visiting The Turkey Hill Experience, dedicated to the dairy company’s products.

A “Snack Attack Day” won’t crunch your wallet at Snyder’s of Hanover, UTZ, or America’s first commercial pretzel bakery, Julius Sturgis.

A “Fit Food Day” can include picking fresh apples or strawberries at fruit farms near Gettysburg.

“We’re a fun food experience,” said Mary Smith, president of the Hershey Harrisburg Visitors Bureau. “Foodies go beyond being sweet and spend a few extra days being salty, creamy or fruity.”
