We’ve had many questions about whether Wilbur’s of Maine will offer our fabulous tours and events this summer. The quick answer is, not yet! Maine has done an amazing job following CDC guidance. We decided to pause tours and events at our factory location for the near future to be consistent with current social distancing best practices, including occupancy limits. In the meantime, Erica, our Event Coordinator, has been BUSY! She is developing several virtual chocolate factory glimpses that will be shared…

Our main goal in life is to eat chocolate, create other reasons to eat chocolate, and conveyances for said chocolate. We put so much…

‘Red Hot’ Valentine Treats!

Lots of people think our busiest season in the chocolate business is Valentine’s Day. Flowers, chocolates, teddy bears, and champagne, it might be hard for you to think back to a Valentine’s Day when you didn’t give or receive chocolate.…
Lots of people think our busiest season in the chocolate business is Valentine’s Day. Flowers, chocolates, teddy bears, and champagne, it might be hard for you to think back to a Valentine’s Day when you didn’t give or receive chocolate. Am I right?

Visiting The Candy Community (Part One)

One of the things I love most about the “Candy Making Industry” is the sense of community between different confectioners. Wherein some industries take great steps to ensure their company’s policies and practices are kept private, candy people tend to…
One of the things I love most about the “Candy Making Industry” is the sense of community between different confectioners.

Our Second Love If you’re new to Wilbur’s of Maine Chocolate Confections there is something you should know about us, right off the bat. We love chocolate. That would seem obvious given that we are a chocolate company, but it just feels good to say it. WE. LOVE. CHOCOLATE. As a result, there isn’t much we don’t cover in chocolate and quite successfully I might add: blueberries, cranberries, almonds, peanuts, gummy bears (you heard me), pretzels…the list goes on. Well, if…
