We’ve had many questions about whether Wilbur’s of Maine will be offering our fabulous tours and events this summer.
The quick answer is: not yet!
Maine has done an amazing job following CDC guidance and we have decided to pause tours and events at our Factory location for the near future to be consistent with current social distancing best practices, including occupancy limits.
In the meantime, Erica, our Event Coordinator, has been BUSY! She is developing several virtual chocolate factory glimpses that will be shared soon and we can’t wait for you to see them. It has been great to welcome our loyal Wilbur’s customers back into our stores again and we are looking forward to sharing our behind the scenes factory fun in person as well!
For those of you who just love rolling up your sleeves and having fun with chocolate, we know you can’t wait to be back in our chocolate factory crafting fun projects and making memories with family and friends. With that in mind, we have a DIY candy project made just for you! This craft involves chocolate, candy and fun, Erica’s 3 favorite things. Introducing our Crafts & Candy DIY BBQ Kit! We have assembled a box of goodies fashioned after our Crafts & Candy class, with all of the pieces you will need and clear instructions to follow (or go off script and make your own wacky idea with the ingredients; we’ll never tell!) The only equipment you will need is a microwave, a bowl and a spoon to melt your chocolately pieces.
This kit has a Maine outdoor grill theme and has a generous mix of pieces to make at least 6 grills, complete with lobstah, corn, steak, fish, red hot dogs and veggie kabobs, plus ice cream for dessert. These grills can be enjoyed as a stand-alone treat or a cupcake or ice cream topper! See just what is included in this short video.
