I was looking forward to visiting this establishment. The storefront is an attractive Bavarian structure that is appealing. Unfortunately, it is unmatched by the interior which consists of a plain two room store. The first room is part of their office structure. The second is also a store which opens up to a factory/work area/kitchen. There was an old fashioned soda bar that was closed. I was with a fairly large group and we were divided into two. A woman came out to the office area and spoke about the background of the store with an emphasis on the Wolfgang family. It was okay but really not that interesting. Although the first room had an old style truck, and a fake fireplace with statue of a napping basset hound, the product was strewn about and it was not attractively or effectively displayed.

But the worst was yet to come. We were ushered into the kitchen area for a demonstration. The woman who was doing the presentation had one bare hand covered in chocolate and one gloved hand that repeatedly touched her head and face. One of us inquired about whether she used gloves when making the candy. She said she did not since she needed to feel the chocolate. She then proceeded to spread some chocolate on a marble board, dump in some rice crispies and mixed it with her bare hand. I don't know about you, but I really don't like other people's skin cells, dna and who knows what in my chocolate. Needless to say, I left without candy purchase.

The store does have some cute toys and containers including some old school tops, flying helicopter and tin boxes shaped like old time trucks. If you come here skip the candy (unless you like living dangerously) and purchase the non-edibles to fill with your homemade treats.

You call ahead to schedule a "tour". It is not a true tour but still cute. The gal working gives you the history of wolfgang candy and afterwards shows you how she makes a chocolate with a mold by hand and talks about a few of the different ways they make chocolate. At the end she gives everyone a chocolate sample which was VERY yummy. We of course did end up walking away with purchased candy. The candy is excellent and the tour was not too bad...wish it were a little bit more involved but the kids truly liked it

Plenty of great selection. Chocolate covered blueberries are good and non pariels
