About Chocolate Hockey
Welcome to Chocolate Hockey!
Previously “Sweetest Hockey on Earth,” we are the premier blog for the 11-time Calder Cup Champion Hershey Bears. With our new name and new format, we hope to bring you the best coverage of the Bears you will find on the internet. We will pour our heart and soul into this site to get you as close to the players and team as you can, with photos, video, and features you will not find anywhere else.
Our blog began in October 2010, with the Bears coming off of their 2010 season where they set multiple AHL records on their way to a Calder Cup Championship. Since then, we have grown to the premier Bears blog with stories gaining national recognition multiple times and building a strong social media presence around the world.
Kyle Mace has been blogging about the Bears since 2008, covering two Calder Cup championships with the Hershey Bears. In his ninth season covering the Bears, he has not missed covering a home game since April of 2010. In his spare time, he tries his best to be a college student at Penn State Harrisburg and cheers on his favorite sports team, the Baltimore Orioles. Kyle previously wrote for his own Hershey Bears hockey blog, Hershey to D.C. Hockey, and was added to the Russian Machine Never Breaks crew in December of 2009 when he documented Boyd Gordon’s injury rehab in Hershey. Since then, his photos have been featured in many different publications around the world. You can see all his personal work at KyleMace.com. Make sure to follow him on his own personal twitter account @kyle_mace.

As a dedicated fan her entire life, she was made her Chocolate Hockey debut with one of the funniest stories in site history: What do High School Students Think the Hershey Bears do for a Living? Jenna is a senior in high school and is involved in her school’s newspaper, yearbook, and musical. She plans on attending college for journalism in the Fall of 2017.
