Small Shop with LOTS of Chocolate

On our way from Amish Country to Hershey, PA we stopped in at the Wilbur Chocolate Co. Even though it is small, it was worth the stop. Their chocolate is just delicious!

The Wilbur Chocolate Co. is fine for a quick visit, especially since admission is free. The museum consists of one and a half rooms with items from chocolate making of yesterday. We did not see any chocolate actually being made while there. There is also some chocolate for sale.

You can't get into factory, but in store/museum you can watch two ladies behind glass doing something with candy (I don't cook, obviously). Bought some chocolate, and then realized it was the real thing - so it was rationed to one or two pieces a day.

Park at the nearby Lititz Springs park (for free), and walk over here. All kinds of chocolate treats, wonderful memorabilia, and a working factory. The staff is very friendly. There are some nice free samples too!

Wilbur buds have a much better taste than Hershey' milk chocolate. The store is small but full of delicious chocolate. Very friendly people. You can watch women in the back make confections. They were dipping Peeps into chocolate and decorating them for Easter when we were there. They also have fudge and free samples of Wilbur Buds. .

Went to see this and smell the chocolate! Talked to the ladies who sat and were covering graham crackers and pretzels with chocolate. Yum! So much memorabilia displayed throughout the building. All sorts of molded chocolates are there. Some for babies, nurses, golfers, bingo players, etc. Could have made our own chocolate thing for $1, but did not want to... More

This is more of a museum and store, well more like a store. However, there is a large display of the history of the Wilbur Chocolate making. The factory is above the store, but due to health reasons, they can't have people running around a chocolate factory. See what those darn Willy Wonka kids did. Seriously though, they have a... More

Great place to learn about the history of chocolate and to get a huge variety of chocolate items that are all delicious. Also enjoyed watching the workers prepare hand dipped items. The town is also interesting - include the pretzel factory in your visit. Small enough to walk around and visit many shops.
