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.
