Wilbur Chocolate, Lititz, Pennsylvania

 

When you explore the area around Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Lititz is one of the towns you will want to visit. There is much history to appreciate in Lititz but one of my favorite places to visit is Wilbur Chocolate at 45 North Broad Street, Lititz PA 17543. This is a new address. They have moved across the street to their new building. Click on the link to reach the website. Chef Dolores and I were there last week. They have a large selection for gift ideas.

I am having one of their dark chocolate malted milk balls as I write this blog. The roots of Wilbur Chocolate go back to 1884 in Philadelphia where Henry Oscar Wilbur began his chocolate business. They consolidated in Lititz in 1934. This company is now part of Cargill, Inc. and produces millions of pounds of superior chocolate and confectionery products each year. The Wilbur Bud is the post popular treat. Yes, you can sample some Buds while watching the workers make chocolate candy.

Hi Roy

I am ALWAYS interested in reading about chocolate, being the big fan I am/ It would definitely be on my list if I were in the area.

I had to laugh at Barbara Todaro 's comment about I love lucy. I remember that particular episode well - classic Lucille Ball!! What a hoot.

Roy, I enjoyed reading this post and the history behind Wilbur chocolate. Chocolate is something I rarely consume these days ... but when I do ... I enjoy it. Malt Balls used to be my favorite as a child.

I'm glad they still exist in your town.  The Hershey Chocolate company had a plant south of Sacramento for many decades.  Unfortunately, they moved it to Mexico several years ago!  I know longer think of Hershey bars as the "All American" treat!

Is the Wilbur Bud similar to the Hershey's Kiss? I bet it was a fun trip for you, Roy and Dolores.

At 7 p.m. on Sunday in the east, it became Monday on ActiveRain. I have been awarded points over the weekend but am still not receiving notifications on comments even though I am receiving other notifications. Other members report that they have not been awarded points over the Thanksgiving weekend.
