Hershey's After Dark
Picture the fun we had with this: skilled pastry artists molding chocolate like champs and spinning sugar into gold in the wee hours inside our very own HERSHEY'S CHOCOLATE WORLD Attraction. But only after Food Network host Sunny Anderson leads them through an eerily deserted Hersheypark solving clues. It’s all part of the fun in the new Food Network primetime series, Chocolate Meltdown: Hershey’s After Dark . And yes – it was filmed right here inside HERSHEY’S CHOCOLATE WORLD!
The four-part series premieres Monday, September 27 at 10 PM ET/PT and is part of Food Network’s biggest Halloween lineup yet. Each episode of the all-out fight or fright competition features three confectioners who must brave the thrilling rides at Hersheypark, then work at breakneck speed back inside HERSHEY’S CHOCOLATE WORLD to devise their spectacular creations using HERSHEY’S sweets before the night is over.
