Highland Chocolates Downtown!

Local chocolate factory opens pop-up shop in Deane Center

 

by Lauren Gooch - June 5, 2018

A new location has “popped up” at the Deane Center in downtown Wellsboro to feature some of Highland Chocolate’s original favorites as well as brand new additions to their souvenir section. The staff at Highland Chocolates has taken inspiration from Tioga County and Potter County’s well-known attractions to creatively name their new array of delicious chocolate products. Featuring the famous Wellsboro gas lights, their new line of imprinted, handmade chocolate comes in the form of a lollipop, bar, or individually wrapped piece.

“We thought it would be fun to name new items after popular local attractions both here in Tioga County and in Potter County where a lot of the tourists visit,” explained Highland Chocolates Manager, Amy Welch.

In honor of Coudersport’s Ice Mine, candy lovers can enjoy “Ice Mine mints,” similar to a peppermint patty. Another appropriately named treat is the Cherry Springs Dark Skies Bark, which is cherry-flavored dark chocolate bark with speckled stars to garnish the top. They have expanded this naming concept to include their salty and sweet snack mixes as well, featuring Rail Trail Crunch, Cabin Crunch, and more. If you’re feeling especially daring, try one of the Pine Creek Poppers – a dark chocolate candy with bacon and jalapeno. For another fiery twist, try the Spicy Chili Nights Pretzel Bark.

A special favorite is their handmade fudge, made with fresh cream and butter, and available in flavors such as vanilla, chocolate, maple, maple walnut, peanut butter, and chocolate peanut butter. To celebrate National Fudge Day on June 16th (the same day as the Laurel Festival Parade!), they will feature their exclusive “Turkey Path Fudge,” in honor of the Turkey Path at the PA Grand Canyon.

Their “Sweet Souvenir Section” provides the perfect individual gifts or a wide-ranging collection of goodies in a convenient gift basket. Other featured products include assorted truffles, sea salt caramel peanut butter Oreo cookies, milk and dark chocolate graham cracker bark, chocolate covered cherries, milk and dark chocolate tree stumps, and even a sugar-free section.

The pop-up shop will be open from now until July 28th. Store hours are Monday through Thursday from noon-5:00pm, Friday and Saturday from noon-7pm, and will be closed on Sundays. Come in for some FREE samples of pretzel bark in a variety of flavors including orange cream, Oreo cookie, s’mores, mint Oreo, almond, coffee bean, and peanut butter. They are also featuring military branch coins, flag lollipops, military lollipops, and red, white, and blue nonpareils.
