Chocolate PA, Wilbur Chocolate, Lancaster Bed and Breakfast

Chocolate, Chocolate Everywhere.  Anytime is a great time to enjoy chocolate and who doesn't?  Lancaster and closeby areas have so many places for "Chocolate Lovers" and a great time to visit Lancaster is in during the spring when the weather has not turned so hot and everything is in bloom.
Wilbur Chocolate - A favorite of many travelers to Lancaster Pennsylvania is Wilbur Chocolate right in downtown Lititz.  Did you know the "chocolate buds" were before the Hershey Kisses?  Take a journey back in time and learn all about Wilbur Chocolate history. 
Cafe Chocolate  - While still in Lititz, make sure that you also stop at Cafe Chocolate where they have their own form of 'organic' chocolate.  All I can say it is delicious.  And the staff and owner are the tops.
Miesse Candies  Founded in Lancaster PA in 1875, Miesse Candies has been dedicated to satisfying its many happy  customers.  You can even make arrangements for a factory tour. 
Founded in 1921 Wolfgang Candy, located in York, PA, is one of the oldest family owned and managed candy companies in the United States.  Check out their website for the factory tours on Monday through Thursday, but you can also visit their gift shop Fridays and Saturdays.  A stop not to miss.
How could you mention chocolate without mentioning Hershey's?  While in Lancaster you might want to take the time to visit Hershey's chocolate world and take the free 16 minute simulated tour through a chocolate factory, it is great fun and you end up in a huge candy store.
While visiting Lancaster Pennsylvania, you will probably be looking for a great place to stay overnight. With so much chocolate you will need at least one or two nights and you will find a close-by a Lancaster Bed and Breakfast, where you host will be more than pleased to assist in planning your visit.

  1. These are all great options for chocolate lovers like myself. What better way to enjoy Pennsylvania then to tour these great chocolate makers. The 16 minute tour through Hershey's chocolate factory sounds like every kid and grown kids dream come true.
