Candy Shop & Museum

Our chocolate experience includes a presentation of our history and a demonstration of how we make chocolate by hand and candy that cannot be made on a machine. You will see and learn how chocolate is tempered and how to make hollows. We also have a video available that shows plant production.

Currently our chocolate experience is available Monday thru Thurs at 1pm however with larger groups we may be able to accommodate other times. If you are interested please call us at 717-843-5536 ext 112 or send us an email and we can set a time and date that will work for you group.

Also, our Das Sweeten Haus retail store and museum are open most days.  The Das Sweeten Haus 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 in York, PA back in 1921.

Thank you for your interest in our facility.
