Watching them make these chocolate goodies was amazing. This is more than a store, it's an experience. Family owned and run, they have everything you could want in the way of sweets and other goodies. Worth a visit!

We went for a tour of the factory which was conducted by Mr. Wilbur. We wound up trying a lot of different candies and bought some to take home. The chocolate covered blueberries are to die for.

The chocolates are good, not the best but good. Lots of things to choose from, pre-packaged or pick your own from the counter. I bought pre-packaged treats that I gave as gifts. The shop has other Maine products for sale such as locally made jams, salsas and honey. Person at register was friendly. I did like the chocolate covered cherries... More

I traveled here this past weekend for lobster and was shocked to find the best chocolate ever.The owner took his time out to explain the process from scratch they had hand on activities. I'll never forget it and will be back for sure. My girl friend did want to leave she was in heaven and agreed it was the best... More

The woman working there had very little personality. We were the only ones in the shop and she never even said hello. We bought several items (blueberry creams were a little chewy) overall good experience but not your typical Mainer welcome

We stop by wilbur's chocolate everytime we are in Freeport because I love chocolate. I spent a lot of money here during our first visit, because there are so many cute chocolates! Teddy bears, lobsters, moose, you name it, they have it! But we regretted spending so much as soon as we started eating them on our drive home. We... More

My husband and I took a tour of the chocolate factory. it was a wonderful experience! Our guide was knowledgeable friendly and made it a great trip. Best of all at the end of the tour you get a little goodie bag of chocolate treats to take with you

This is a nice little chocolate shop, with a wide selection of tasty treats. They make most of the product on site and will provide a short tour. Kids loved it, especially "minting" their own chocolate coin at the end of the tour.

Small little candy shop right in Freeport but with a huge selection! All the chocolates are wonderful and they even have some "retro candy" in the front. We originally went in and bought about 1 lb. at the beginning of our trip. Needless to say, we went back for more and took some home. It was very, very good and... More

We are always on the lookout for great chocolate places while on vacation and had read about Wilbur's. In the past we've had excellent experiences with local chocolate shops in Lubec and Ogunquit. When we went into Wilbur's, although we were the only customers and there were several staff working, no one acknowledged us until we checked out. It wasn't... More
