Pennsylvania has a long history of chocolate and candy making — from the well-known large companies such as Hershey, Ludens and 5th Avenue (both of the last two companies were originally located in Reading) to small companies such as Wilbur Chocolates in Litiz or Reppert’s in Oley. There are also many very small chocolate makers such as Lorah’s Handmade Chocolates.
Started forty years ago in Lancaster County as Lorah’s Candy Kitchen by Ruth Lorah, the chocolates became well-known in the area for their quality. The business is now operated by Ruth’s niece, Maria Lorah Havey and is located in the Berks County countryside.
