It was a fun experience selecting ingredients for our chocolate bar, then watching it be made. We've been ordering Wilmar chocolates for years for Christmas gifts. It was fun to visit where they are being made. Very pleasant workers. And very tasty candy. And great assistance at checkout.

Pleasant service!! Still my favorite place for chocolate (I live out of town so I stop whenever I'm back… it's a must)!

Me and my sister come here all the way from Stevens Point just to get a chocolate bar. They are so GOOD!

We loved being able to pick our own ingredients. Susan was helpful in explaining how they were being made. She was pleasant and very organized.

Very friendly and patient and helpful with children.

I love this store! My daughter named it “our store” when she was 5 years old. Marda (after the first time coming here) used to ask every time just she and I got in the car or truck “Do you think Wilmar is open now daddy?” We have been coming here ever since. She is now 23, a grad of the U of Iowa, theatre major, minor in biology and on her way to California at the end of this summer.

We had a wonderful experience. I got to have so much chocolate, I felt like Charlie in the chocolate factory. Everyone seemed so happy and kind. I would definitely come back!

Ruby, 04/12/2019

I come here every year and still can't get enough. They work hard to show you all your chocolate bar progress and do as much they can so if I had a choice to go anywhere I would go here.

Tryniti Seitz, 04/09/2019

This place is awsome. (Happy Face)

Hunter H., 04/03/2019

Maddie, 12/27/2018, Fond du lac

I love this place. I want to work here when I'm older. The people are very kind and answer our questions. Keep doing what you're doing and making the best chocolate ever.

Sydney, 12/27/2018, Fond du lac

A gem of my first Appleton trip!

Paddy, 12/24/2018, Chicago, IL

Awesome service! Really good sweets! I like how they make the chocolate! Very nice! They have great Oreos. Really good chocolates! Try the Sour Patch Kids & Poprocks! Thank you for a great experience.

Making your own chocolate bar is so much fun! Anne is awesome and so much fun. I came out from Seattle to get a milk chocolate, Andes mint, peppermint, puffed rice, and pop rock chocolate bar! Merry Christmas.

Appleton - A small town does get intoxicated
with the chocolate at Wilmar Chocolates
Oh! The aroma is so very tempting …

Jenney Rodrigues, 08/16/2018, Appleton

This chocolate is amazing! It's creamy, it melts in your mouth, and you can add a simple crunch. I'm making a chocolate bar and it *will* taste amazing! I'm sure of it. Live here if you must, die here if you can!

Alyssa, 08/16/2018, Appleton, WI

Your chocolate is the best I've ever had! It's so tasty and has the best flavor!

Parker Vellieux, 06/15/2018

Went to a chocolate place in Orlando Florida. The quality and flavor was not near as great as Wilmars. I am sending them (aunts) 2 boxes of Wilmars.

Clementine Haupt, 04/07/2018

As always kind, and took care of me.

Chase, 03/22/2018, Iowa

We are delighted to be your first international group tour… your chocolates are so delicious, they should be known around the world! Thank you for your hospitality and sharing your business with us.

Hands down, the BEST chocolate shop I have ever been to (and there's been many). The staff was so kind and accommodating. We will definitely be making the long drive back here!

Carrie E. & the homeschool group, 10/12/2017

Beautifully done! Very friendly!

Wilmar's chocolates are the best chocolates made… and I have tried them all! They beat Godiva's, See's, Hughes, Oak's, Kilmin's, Seroogy's, Fanny Farmer's and Whitmann's! You will NOT be disappointed in any of their chocolates.

Nancy Moder, 09/07/2017

Loved it! Fun activity for the visiting grandkids! Highly recommended.

CAS, 8/10/2017

Wilmar Chocolates is amazing!

Napoleon Nosker, 4/6/17

These chocolates are amazing. I'm living in Atlanta right now and between you and me, these beat all of the chocolate stores in Atlanta! These chocolates are flavorful! Amazing customer service also! Keep up the good work!

Parker Vellieux, 4/6/17, Atlanta, GA

This place is the best chocolate place ever! For sure my favorite. I think the chocolate is really good and has great options for everything. 10/10.

Saige Schreiner, 2017

You guys are always very friendly. This service is AMAZING. Of course the chocolate is always wonderful too. A great treat when grocery store items just can't cut it. Keep up the great work and I look forward to my next visit.

Your chocolates are amazing. Being in here after being out of state for years brought back my childhood memories. The chocolate maker was very friendly and courteous. Great job everyone!

Jeff and Cheri Jentz, 2017

The chocolate is great and the workers are super nice. We come here all the time, mostly during the Flag Day parade. I hope many other people get the same experience I did.

Alexis McCard, 12/10/2016, Appleton

Cheryl is amazing! She made our first candy bar making experience very fun and informative. We will definitely be back!

The staff today was exceptional with my clients from work. Very detailed on each step and with what they do. Awesome place.

Nathan, 9/29/2016

A note of thanks for the delicious box of candies that we used for gifts for our baby shower. We used the four piece boxes for favors and everyone was so happy to see the "Wilmar" name. Thank you, enjoyed by all!

Mary Weeldreyer, 4/17/2016

Everyone here is so friendly and helpful, such fun coming to Wilmar. We make the trip from Milwaukee whenever possible. Thanks!

Jean, 2/27/2016

For a wonderful Valentine's Day surprise, my daughter Kelly ordered assorted chocolates, melt-a-ways, and an awesome candy with cinnamon in it from Wilmars. All were incredibly delicious! We tried to ration them but that really didn't work! Three years ago my husband and I moved from a lifetime of living in Appleton to Jupiter, Florida. One of the things I missed was Wilmar's chocolates. Nothing can beat your chocolates. What a wonderful surprise for Valentine's Day! They are all gone now but if we have another cold spell down in southern Florida and the chocolates can be shipped here without melting, I'm sure we'll order more of your delicious chocolates! Thanks!

Sue Everson, 2/23/2016

This place smells amazing and watching your own candy bar being made is super dope. Great job!

Devon, 1/30/2016

Beautiful store! Wow!

Jim Rivett, 1/18/2016

I am a teacher in a small, Catholic school on the shores of Lake Superior. At Christmastime, I happened to be a recipient of an amazing box of chocolates given to me by one of my 2nd grade students. He mentioned that he thought a relative of his made my chocolates. Well, I have to tell you that I am enjoying my chocolates that were given to me. One chocolate in particular took me back 30 years. It was a square, fruity gelee covered in dark chocolate. I may have cravings for more of these soon! Let me know what I should ask for when I place my order. By the way, there was only one of those in my assorted box. Darn, haha. Thank you for making artisan chocolates. It is evident that you take pride in creating your line of chocolates. They are as lovely to look at as they are to eat!

Deb, 1/9/2016

Merci! Grazie! Gracia! Thanks! This will help me get through finals.

Daniel, 2016, Lawrence University

I love this place! Everyone is so nice and friendly. The chocolate is constantly to kill for!!

You have the best chocolate around since the time God was made.

First visit, loved it, great experience.

Jeff Porto, 2016

You can't help but enjoy the experience here. A wonderful throwback to better times. You feel a little transferred to a magical Wonka-esque place. The staff is so knowledgeable, true enthusiasts, and as pleasant as you could imagine. A special treat for both mouth and soul.

Jeff Pozniak, 2016

I used to come here all the time as a child and 50 years later I'm still shopping here! Second year tradition, Easter with my boyfriend (hope to be husband). Thank you everyone for all you do!!

Cheri Carlson - Jeff Jentz, 2016

Two toned caramel apples are fantastic.

Marion, 2016

I loved our experience here! I brought my daughter and her friend for Valentines Day and they made chocolate bars. Very fun and absolutely adored Theo. He went out of his way to help me out and I will definitely come back for delicious sweets. Anne and Julie were awesome and lovely too.!

Lannie K, 2016

Favorite time of year! Can't resist your caramel aples. They are the best!

Jane Steger, 2016

Great staff. Nancy and Brandy especially. Excellent selection that's always the best quality.

John S, 2016

Thank you so much for the wonderful chocolates. I wanted one last box before temps rise above 70 degrees. When I was a child my dad sold candy in his store. As I grew older there was a wonderful candy shop in Madison, Badger Candy Kitchen, and the owner Gus once told me that one piece of "real" chocolate is better than all of the more "commercially" made candy. He was correct. There may be many chocolatiers in Madison since Gus retired and the store closed, but none could match the confections Badger Candy Kitchen made. So for years I have been without the taste of chocolate until I came across yours. What a sweet surprise. Thank you very much for keeping the candy shop chocolate tradition going, no wonder you win so many state fair awards!

Georgia Wagaman, 2016

I've been here many times and everytime it tastes great. It's made fast and gets better everytime I come.

The best chocolate I have ever had. I love the small town feel and the care that goes into every chocolate bar. No other chocolate shop compares.

My son went to college at UW Stout in Menominee WI and still resides there. His family visits the Fox Valley frequently. A visit to this area wouldn't be complete without a visit to Wilmar's. I had to return for more angel food. His wife is from the Minneapolis area and had never had it before. She says it is her favorite now.

Jane M Brugan, 2015

Wow!!

Sharon Schrader, 2015

Very, very, very delicious. Everytime I come to Wilmars I come to the chocolate making room to order a bar. Also, they only take 10-15 minutes to make! It's fun!

Sophia Zenefski, 2015

This is the best chocolate in the world!

Chocy Holic, 2015

Gift certificates for Mix-It-Up bars are a perfect St. Nick gift. The kids loved counting santas while they waited for their bars. We're hoping St. Nick gives them again next year.

Christine, 2015

Wow! Our first visit from Fond Du Lac! Not our last! Amazing!

My aunt Helen introduced us to Wilmar Chocolates when we were just young kids. She made it a Christmas tradition. She is no longer with us, having passed away the day after Christmas of 2008, but the tradition lives on. Thanks to Helen, Wilmars will always be at our Christmas.

Colleen McMahon, 2015

I really like your Mix-It-Up bars!

It's amazing how you mix the chocolate to make your own chocolate bars. You are on my best store list.

Mia, 2014

I visited friends in Appleton 10 years ago who took me to Wilmar Chocolates. Yum! I've since ordered the maple creams and caramels and am planning to branch out a little. Those maple creams are the best I've ever had. Thanks!

Rosalie, 2009

We were in the Appleton area for the Marathon festivities and stopped in to your establishment. We really enjoyed our visit and came away with some sinfully delicious chocolate.

Mary, 2009

I was in Appleton last week and my sister brought me by your store. I purchased a 1 1/2 pound box of mixed chocolates and turtles. It was a very nice assortment and your very helpful clerk specially packaged it for my return flight. It is with deep regret, therefore, that I must report a serious product defect. You see, I put the box of chocolate out yesterday to share with my coworkers. But for some reason, the chocolates completely evaporated! There is no trace left except for a bunch of brown papers. I think this may require some research on your part to determine why they would just disappear! Perhaps there is something in the chemical formula that interacts with the air in Florida - I don't know. Thanks so much - they were splendid!! And I'm a hero. Except everyone wants me to go back to Wisconsin again really soon. Do you think they are trying to get rid of me or something???
