My husband and I took a tour of the chocolate factory. it was a wonderful experience! Our guide was knowledgeable friendly and made it a great trip. Best of all at the end of the tour you get a little goodie bag of chocolate treats to take with you

This is a nice little chocolate shop, with a wide selection of tasty treats. They make most of the product on site and will provide a short tour. Kids loved it, especially "minting" their own chocolate coin at the end of the tour.

Small little candy shop right in Freeport but with a huge selection! All the chocolates are wonderful and they even have some "retro candy" in the front. We originally went in and bought about 1 lb. at the beginning of our trip. Needless to say, we went back for more and took some home. It was very, very good and we found everyone in there to be extremely friendly.

We are always on the lookout for great chocolate places while on vacation and had read about Wilbur's. In the past we've had excellent experiences with local chocolate shops in Lubec and Ogunquit. When we went into Wilbur's, although we were the only customers and there were several staff working, no one acknowledged us until we checked out. It wasn't even a particularly friendly check-out. (This was quite a contrast from other stores, such as LL Bean, where everyone was friendly.)

If the product is good, we'll tolerate poor service. However, when we got back to our hotel and tasted the chocolate, we were again disappointed. The chocolate was mediocre.

My wife always picks up some truffle chocolates and a blueberry pie when she shops in Freeport, Maine. Every summer we visit Freeport on our way to Arcadia National Park. We park the big RV and off she goes. She loves the outlets and I love the blueberry pie. A half dozen well chosen truffles will provide the same chocolate "fix' as a full box with far fewer calories. Now, as for the blueberry pie warmed up just right with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, well, I see it as really a healthy choice. This shop has everything you love about chocolate and it is on the way into Freeport going north on Route one on the left. So, after your lobster roll why not pick up a truffle for dessert?
