Hungry? Try a Chocolate Facial



    We get the concept of eye candy... but face candy? Yep, it's real, and it's literal.

    An edible chocolate treatment is now available at the Spa at the Hotel Hershey, making it the first time in North America you just may want to, well, eat the stuff on your face.

    Whlie the spa has long offered antioxidants-rich chocolate treatments, the edible Cocoa Facial Experience debuted Feb.  So, you know, if the aesthetician "accidentally" puts some of the solution on your lips, you will sort of have to help yourself out there.

    The experience (75 minutes for $170 weekends; $165 weekdays) includes a warm foot bath, a citrus cleansing and exfoliation, and the yummy dark chocolate mask.

    The spa also offers package options including the Chocolate Spa Sampler (whipped cocoa bath, choice of chocolate bean polish or chocolate sugar scrub, a 50-minute cocoa massage, and lunch; $208), the Chocolate Decadence Day, and a Sweet Feet for Two treatment that includes a free glass of champagne.
