Currently the factory is under renovation, but there is a store on Main Street in Wellsboro with many delicious items to choose from. Being a 60 year older, it is fun to go in a place like that that just brings out the kid in you! Fresh, excellent items, at a reasonable price. One of their many specialties is "Bark" chocolate and it is amazing.
The other thing that is worth mentioning is this a non profit, staffed with people of special needs who produce wonderful product and just another reason to support this establishment. And finally, the one female manager at the store is quite funny if you get her going! A Wellsboro Treasure.

I begin by saying that I am an novice chocolate maker myself. When I was home with my young son many years ago, I had a small home based business where I made various chocolate and taffy concoctions with a lot of success.

I found this small store while going into the building for ice cream. This is not the factory it is a small location shared with an ice cream shop. The woman there was super kind and helpful. She was also a great saleswoman because I left buying much mire than I planned to!

My husband chose the Milk Chocolate Tree Stumps which are absolutely the best combination of chocolate, pretzels, Carmel, and peanut butter. The salesperson told me it was a best seller and I was skeptical...but I will revisit on our next 200 mile journey to the area just for those.

Of course you can order online but it is such a beautiful area we will be going back anyway. We did not get to take the factory tour about a mile away from the store, however, we will plan to next time. *See the picture advertisement for information!

FYI if you are visiting the area...this was one of the few places that was open. Despite many places in the area saying they were open with updated websites and even after we made appointments...there were many places closed. Call first and double check again right before you head in that direction. We traveled over 200 miles to spend a relaxing weekend visiting pls es in the area and half of the places we planned to visit were closed. We were very grateful for places like Highland Chocolates for us to visit!

The chocolate is fabulous. We did not know before the visit, but this chocolate factory is staffed by adults who have disabilities. The workers were fabulous. We took a tour conducted by one of the workers. This young lady was very knowledgeable about the operation, and was so proud of the workers. As we walked around, you could tell how much pride the workers took in their respective jobs. The candy was very good, but I am convinced that was due to the pride of the workers in the making of the various chocolate products. We did a lot of neat things during our Wellsboro visit, but the Highland Chocolates Factory was by far the neatest. We will visit Wellsboro again, and Highland Chocolates will be the first place we stop.

The show room is very small and there is not a tremendous selection. We were unable to tour the factory because of covid, which essentially made this stop just another candy store. The draw for us was definitely a tour of the factory. We loved that this business employs persons with special needs. The grounds were cute but small. The chocolate is very good and reasonably priced.

We stopped in to check out this chocolate store and their sweets along with taking a little tour. It is located in an older style white house right off of Route 6 E outside of downtown area. There is a parking lot and side porch entrance. We were greeted by a friendly young woman in a very small chocolate store with a nice variety of chocolates in nice displays. We asked for a tour and she got one of the staff from the back to give us a little tour. The couple of back rooms were clean and well organized and the workers were hard at work dipping and molding chocolates. We were shown the various machines and how some of the chocolates were made along with being introduced to each worker. It looked like a very well run little business, a non-profit, which provides employment to people with disabilities. Proceeds go back into the same community. We enjoyed our little tour, felt good about what this chocolate shop was doing for the community, and bought some fun chocolates to take along. A very 'sweet' little stop with sweet staff and sweet treats!

We read about Highland Chocolates with their great chocolate and wonderful mission, so stopped in for a tour and tasting. They weren't actively making candy that day, but you could see the machines used. They have a small shop staffed by adults with disabilities who lead short tours of the facilities (about 2 rooms), but you don't need to do the tour to sample their pretzel bark or purchase some chocolate. They use 10 pound blocks of imported Belgian chocolate for the base of their candies, including fudge, dipped cookies and pretzel sticks and pretzel bark in many varieties. We thought the prices were reasonable and everything we bought delicious: the bark (dark, milk, peppermint, peanut butter), fudge, dipped cookies, and coconut filled candies. Very glad we stopped by and will stop in again when in the area.

The factory tour of Highland Chocolates is interesting, the company works primarily with the handicapped. Each chocolate is made by hand, be it a mold, bark chocolates or sandwich chocolates (so yummy!!)

Had a wonderful tour through this neat little chocolate factory. We were able to see the entire process from the molds to packaging up and shipping! The kids learned a lot and were able to try a sample. Great little shop and delicious chocolate. Can't wait to visit again!

We were here mid week and made sure we had time to take the tour of the "factory". A very nice young lady showed us around and introduced us by name to each of the employees. They were all busy doing their assigned jobs, but stopped to greet us as we went along. We saw how they produce, wrap and eventually sell and ship all the various delicious products. We tried all kinds of their new offerings and so far, all are OUT OF THIS WORLD YUMMY! This is a class act business from their people to their products.
