The iconic 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 that’s made using Mr. Wilbur’s original recipe. Available in both semisweet and milk chocolate varieties, the Wilbur Bud is manufactured in Central Pennsylvania where it remains close to its Philadelphia roots.
