Not sure how you can visit Lititz and not get yourself a bag of Wilbur Buds!!! Of course, wandering around in here is fun and I wish I could buy one of everything! In fact....next time I will scale the wall at the fudge shop and throw myself in a fudge vat! LOL. Yep...a must in Lititz!

You can actually smell the chocolate in the streets as you approach the building. Free samples of the Wilbur Buds, lots to choose from, see a couple of the staff preciously dipping chocolate or making some different chocolates. A couple of small rooms of antique pieces regarding the history of chocolate

We always visit Wilbur when we are in the area, the smell alone is worth the admission price. It's free of course, but you won't leave without buying something, trust me!!

I've been here several times upon visiting the Lancaster area. It is small, very small when compared to Hershey. But then again, great things often come in small packages. Even though there is no actual tour of the factory, their little museum is quite neat. The people behind the counter are friendly. And the chocolate they produce is the best.... More

Stopped in and picked up some Wilbur Buds and Chocolate covered coconut they were great! They had all kinds of options and some cool deals on boxes which I think I bought about 5. Great place with an awesome smell!

Nothing compares to this chocolate. Smooth, creamy and delicious. I'm spoiled and really only want Wilbur's chocolate! The small little history of chocolate area is neat, but I simply go to buy chocolate!

My wife and I were visiting the Lancaster area and went for a walk through Lititz when we smelled the delicious scents coming from this factory. From blocks away on a quiet Sunday afternoon we found the source coming from the 100 year old factory decorated with American flags and banners showing their American pride. The factory like everything in... More

I visited with my husband and son a couple of weeks ago. There was a craft fair on in the area so the store was extremely crowded. Staff were very pleasant and friendly and kept the long line moving very well. The chocolate is delicious and totally leaves Hershey in the dirt:) I wanted to buy everything, but reigned myself...

Lots of people clearly love this place - it gets high ratings- and probably has lots of sentimental value for people from the area. I do like the fact that this smaller manufacturer is still in business, operating from it's long-time premises in a small town. It's nice to see someone survive against the corporate giants. For someone like me,... More

We are so sorry that our store fell short of your expectations. It is true that we cannot compete with stores and the different laws that apply to Belgium or other European chocolate manufacturers. We DO have to abide by American laws and restrictions on tours. As a point of interest, our Wilbur Chocolate Store is host to literally several... More
