Wilbur's of Maine
But when Gail suggested taking the kids to Wilbur's of Maine, I was all over that. It's only $3.50 for the tour, and you get LOTS of samples. Especially when you went to High School with the event coordinator who gives the tours ;).
It was fun to go through the factory and learn more about this awesome company that is based in my home town. Also? Chocolate is delicious. Unfortunately, while inside, I only took photos with my phone... But enjoy them anyway:
Wilbur the Moose is hand-painted, and it takes several people to create him.
We were there on caramel day and it smelled so delicious in the factory. I wanted to drink it. We also saw the chocolate-covered blueberries being panned, and Aspen got to create a handful of chocolate coins. Lemme tell ya, Wilbur's chocolate coins are SO MUCH BETTER than the cheap gold ones you buy around Christmas to stuff stockings.
Moxie. He said he wanted to buy some simply for the logo. He ended up not only with a can of the soda, but a tee we stripped right off the mannequin.
