Some creative choices and good assortment of bulk candy. The chocolate is much better than Hershey's and is a staple in the history of the town.

The back of the store is basically a museum to chocolate making, but not a tour of the production process. Yes, you can see fudge made by hand in the back and they have a small visible kitchen area, but you don't get the full effect of the production. I get the insurance stuff and the logistics of giving tours,... More

Tank, thanks for visiting and for sharing your review. We feel bad that you were disappointed because you didn't get a tour of the mass production end of things. We're really quite friendly people and would gladly give tours but as you noted, sometimes laws get in the way. We do hope you'll stop back soon--and often. More

My husband buys a 20lb. box of Wilbur buds each year and we create candy gift boxes for people he works with. It's an easy gift - I just called ahead and ordered the box over the phone and then picked up in the store! Yes, the store was VERY busy, but it is Christmas! That's to be expected!

We have been visiting Wilbur Chocolate factory for the past 20 years--whenever we are in the area, and are never disappointed! The dark chocolate Wilbur buds are my personal favorite, but several members of the family prefer the milk chocolate buds! All of their candy is delicious, and more reasonably priced than Hershey chocolate as well as definitely better quality... More
