Indulge in Sweet Chocolate History at the Hagley

Hagley Museum

The Hagley Museum in full bloom.


Indulge in the history and love of chocolate at the Hagley Museum, about 13 miles from Hamanassett Bed & Breakfast, on May 6.

Brothers and sweet entrepreneurs Eric and Ryan Berley, from The Franklin Fountain and Shane Confectionery in Philadelphia, will dazzle guests of their adventures in all things sweet.

Shane Confectionery is the oldest continuously run confectionery in the United States, established in 1863 and the Berley’s took over in 2010 after researching shops across the country.

The evening of chocolate will of course begin with a sampling from the confectionery including wine, beer and soda.

The Hagley Museum is located off Route 141 in Wilmington, Delaware and the event will be held in the Library Copeland Room. Guests must be 21 to attend.
