Visited on a Saturday along with a bunch of tour groups. It was packed! The gift shop/museum is really nice - a great balance of history and items for purchase. Picked up some chocolate to take home. Parking available across the street, but it fills up fast and the lot is small. Highl recommended!

KRtrumpet182, what a lovely review, thanks so much! We know it gets packed in here sometimes and we try our best to keep things moving. Most tour groups call ahead and schedule their times to visit but...sometimes they don't and we end up with a busy, busy store! Please come back again soon and hopefully it'll be a little quieter....

We enjoyed the chocolate smell blocks away. Had a fun time talking to Kathy about her chocolate art. It was truly amazing. We highly recommend this place.

A combination factory, museum and retail area. Very good assortment of chocolates. Samples galore! Prices are reasonable. Worth a stop.

This is my third trip here over the last few years and not much has changed and that is great. I am so glad I live 5 hours away or I may be there everyday. They have the BEST chocolate you will find. I love their milk chocolate cover pretzels and the Wilbur buds. YUM....I think I will have a... More

We visited here for the 2nd time unfortunately it was closed on Sunday but last time I remember we saw a lot of historic chocolate making tool inside,also tried some samples. Actually I was not impressed their chocolate themselves but this factory was worth a visit if you trip around Lancaster area

This is a great little chocolate shop. They have a variety of chocolates, including many different shapes and some other candy. It can get very crowed in the store. In the back of the store you can watch candy/fudge being made and look at many old tins and other items used through the years in chocolate making. If you are... More

Loved this place, absolutely the best chocolate in the world. Loved seeing the old candy molds and watching the ladies making candy and of course the Wilbur Bud samples.

Though I got there close to closing so only had a few minutes to peak around, I enjoyed looking at the variety of chocolates. Upstairs is the actual factory and you can hear the buzz of it while you shop. I recommend the dark chocolate Wilbur buds!

A small museum located in the factory store. Nice window areas to view candy making and the samples are always good. Of course the chocolate is great.
