Visiting the Wilbur Chocolate Company in Lititz, PA

We rounded off a terrific day of shopping at lunching in Lititz, PA
with a visit to the Wilbur Chocolate Company!
Home of the famous Wilbur Buds®,
this candy store and museum is located at 48 N. Broad Street.

We did the self-guided tour of the museum.

How interesting to see antique candy-making tools -
oversize copper bowls, paddles, ladles
and most of all, the old chocolate molds.
Wilbur has been making chocolate since 1884!

Sigh...bulk bags of buds.
My undoing.

Go to the Wilbur website to learn lots more about 
their chocolate and the history of their company. 
If you can't make it to Lititz, you can order online!
They're also on Facebook.
