Lore's Chocolates Celebrates Palm Sunday Tradition With Special Open House

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Lore's Chocolates factory tour is a Palm Sunday staple in Philadelphia, a once-a-year chance to see how chocolate is made. It's an annual tradition that starts Holy Week.

The allure of Lore's Chocolates is unmistakable. The shop opens its doors every Palm Sunday, the only Sunday of the year they churn out chocolate, and gives a  free tour of the facility.

On Sunday, the chocolate company welcomed scores of guests for a peek behind the cocoa curtain, even allowing them to make their own treats and hang out with the Easter Bunny.
