Nestled in the charming town of Bala Cynwyd, a hidden gem awaits chocolate aficionados and connoisseurs of the sweetest traditions. Zitner’s is not just a confectionery; it’s a portal to a bygone era, where local chocolate craftsmanship and chocolate eggs take center stage.

A Timeless Tradition 

Zitner’s is a celebration of nostalgia and craftsmanship. With roots dating back to the early 1920s, this confectionery is a testament to the enduring allure of chocolate. The Zitner’s legacy was born when Sam and Annie Zitner began crafting delectable chocolates in their Philadelphia garage. The allure of their creations quickly outpaced their modest operation, prompting a move to a factory.

At the heart of Zitner’s philosophy is a dedication to preserving the art of handcrafted chocolate. In an era when automation dominates the confectionery industry, Zitner’s proudly maintains the tradition of handcrafting every batch of chocolate eggs. The commitment to quality and authenticity has endured over the years, remaining unchanged since the factory moved to its current location in Bala Cynwyd.

Chocolate Eggs for Every Palate

Zitner’s is renowned for its iconic Butter Krak Chocolate Covered Eggs, a timeless classic that has captivated the taste buds of Philadelphians for generations. These eggs boast a sumptuous filling of buttery goodness enveloped in a layer of dark chocolate, a combination that continues to win hearts.

Yet, Zitner’s doesn’t sit back and rest on its laurels. The confectionery offers a diverse range of chocolate eggs to cater to a variety of tastes. Whether you crave the luscious creaminess of Coconut Cream or the nutty delight of Peanut Butter, Zitner’s has a chocolate egg that promises to transport your taste buds to a world of bliss.

A Year-Round Destination for Chocolate Lovers

While Zitner’s Easter collection, featuring their iconic chocolate bunnies, is a seasonal delight, the allure of local chocolate and chocolate eggs is available year-round in Bala Cynwyd. Zitner’s has created an enchanting chocolate experience that transcends the confines of seasons and occasions. Whether you’re celebrating a holiday, seeking the perfect corporate gift, or simply indulging your sweet tooth, Zitner’s old-fashioned chocolates are the ideal choice.

Continuing the Legacy

In 1990, Zitner’s transitioned to new ownership, but the legacy of crafting exceptional chocolate remained steadfast. Very little has changed over the years. Handwritten recipes from decades past are still the guiding force, preserving the original flavors and techniques.
