For Immediate Release


Look out Hershey: Lancaster is all Abuzz with its Many Chocolate and Candy Makers Making Smooth Confections.

February is the month of romance and chocolate and locals and tourists alike are looking for sweet interludes in Lancaster County. On February 28 2009, restaurants, candy makers and chocolatiers are joining forces with two area bed and breakfasts to bring together the many facets of chocolate and candy making.

Local innkeepers say that couples have been looking for an opportunity to learn the rich history of Lancaster chocolate and how its romance has survived neighboring one of the world’s largest candy makers.

While consumers demand fresh, quality ingredients, these innkeepers have put together a tour to show their guests the sweeter side of Lancaster.

With Wilbur’s, Spence’s and English Village, the possibilities and varieties are endless. Using methods long forgotten, such as hand dipping and the lack of preservatives, the candies are pure indulgence.

Guests will also enjoy learning about another Pennsylvania chocolatier – Godiva. 

The weekend will start with a “getting to know Chocolate” evening featuring Selina Man of Cafe Chocolate; and Saturday will start with a great chocolate-inspired breakfast, tours of local confectioners, a chance to explore romantic Lancaster County by backroads, and a chocolate themed dinner with round out the day. What could be more romantic?

The package is offered for $150/person and includes all tours, tastings, transportation, dinner and a special gift for the romantic couple.
