The best ice cream in Kings Park! The cakes are outstanding, custom made and definately not like your average ice cream cake! My kids have had a great time having their birthday parties at the creamery and the prices are really reasonable! MJ

Hershey's Creamery is the place we go to as part of a great summertime tradition for our family we refer to as "Ice Cream Fridays." After the kids submit their weekly reading logs at the library each Friday afternoon and we load up on new books, we stop at Hershey's to savor a cone. Sitting outside on their shady bench and watching the world go by as we enjoy a cold treat is quintessential summer! - Karin Vanderveer
