125 Years of Perfection


A Rich History
The Wilbur Bud owes its name to an unlikely source of inspiration: nature. In 1894, founder H.O. Wilbur developed a process that deposited specially blended aged chocolate into a solid shape that resembled a flower bud.

While a lot has changed since 1894, the Wilbur Bud is still a local favorite (and Lititz icon) made according to Mr. Wilbur’s original recipe. Available in both semisweet and milk chocolate varieties, the Bud remains the most beloved of all Wilbur Chocolate treats—and is still manufactured in the heart of Central Pennsylvania.
