One of the sweetest tours in York has to be the Wolfgang Candy Company Factory Tour, recently voted number four of the “Top 5 Tasty Tours” in the Nation by the Food Network. Their Visitor Center and Museum features illustrations of old-time American candy craftsmen. You’ll see many special display cases filled with wooden sugar molds, glass candy jars, and many other priceless antiques. You’ll also see a video of the Wolfgang candy-making process, along with a complete history of the Wolfgang family who made their candy making dream come true

This family run company has grown to encompass a several blocks of the closely knit community in which it started. Fans of “I Love Lucy” reruns may see similarities between the candy making line and a classic Lucy & Ethel sketch. The candy line moves so fast you’ll understand the temptation to snatch a few treats as they race by.

No need to steal sticky chocolates from the production line. You receive three complimentary chocolates at the end of the tour. You can also stop in the factory shop and stock up on your favorites, or try something from their turn of the century ice cream soda fountain.

Take a virtual tour of the Wolfgang Chocolate Factory

with the FOX 43 crew.
