Hersheypark Offers Allergen-Conscious Foods
(Hershey, Pa.) – The 2009 National Restaurant Association Chef Survey indicates that allergen-conscious and gluten-free foods are among the biggest culinary trends in 2009. Those survey results come as no surprise to Kevin O’Brien, the director of food and beverage for Hersheypark.
“Hersheypark began to offer allergen-conscious and gluten-free menu options in response to the growing number of people – especially children – who have food allergies. Our Park is a very family-friendly destination, and we want to offer menu items that all our guests can enjoy,” said O’Brien. “We continue to receive positive guest feedback for our efforts.”
Hersheypark offers gluten-free wraps, chicken tenders, pizza crust and sandwich rolls. Dessert lovers can indulge with gluten-free brownies and allergen-conscious caramel corn and cookies. In addition, the Waterfront Creamery inside the Park is dedicated to being entirely peanut-free.
