A Philadelphia Tradition Since 1967

The Walter family’s dream of owning a retail shop came to be over 30 years ago. Prior to Lore’s Chocolates, Tony Sr. made his mark in the industry with several well respected brands in Philadelphia and the southern US. His work with Goldenberg’s Peanut Chews led the family to the eventual purchase of the original Goldenberg Peanut Chews factory – it’s where Lore’s Chocolates are manufactured to this day. You might say it’s a factory with good chocolate karma.

Two generations of chocolatier’s – Tony Sr. and Tony Jr. – live the chocolate life on a daily basis and are hands down the most knowledgeable retail manufacturers still working in the Philadelphia candy industry, one that has an illustrious past.

Both are hands on and have a practical, passionate and authentic approach to chocolate manufacturing, which shows in everything they do.

    The chocolates were as welcome as ever, but I assumed they'd be packaged just as they are when I go to Lore's. Not so--instead I got three plastic packs tossed in a bag. Please make this clear in your order, and offer alternate packaging . Nice delivery person.

      Hi Helen, we're sorry for the misunderstanding. Looks like you ordered 3 different items, 1/4 LB each. If you're ordering individual items, we're not sure if they are for different people, so we don't assume they belong together in one box. I can also see that you ordered an 'in between amount', 3/4LB, which we do not have a box for...Also, we bag anything under 1/2 LB. We carry 1/2 LB and 1 LB boxes at our store. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, as Mercato is a new service. Our walk in customers know how we package our chocolates, and we'll include this in our description for our Mercato clients. Best regards!
