Miesse Candies was founded in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania in 1875. For almost 140 years, we have been dedicated to providing the finest quality chocolates to our customers. Miesse Candies is now a household word in the homes of Lancaster County families. We use all natural ingredients (sourcing locally whenever possible), such as pure vanilla, real butter, and fresh cream, with no added preservatives. Our rich chocolate is made with real cocoa butter, unlike other confectionary-based chocolates. All of our fruits and nuts are hand-dipped the old-fashioned way. The popular Chocolate Factory Tours are an engaging destination for young and old alike. Our visitors get to see the process of melting, spreading, cooling, hand-cutting, dipping; all of the steps it takes to produce our quality chocolates. We are proud to say that there are never any shortcuts taken here at Miesse Candies.
