Looking for more info on the Adler Chocolate Factory, Bay Roberts

Atlantic Advocate, vol. 49, no. 08 (April 1959)
Candy and Chocolates 
The Adler Company... is the chocolate firm which is now also making hard candies. People who have visited this operation have all come away with the same impression about the cleanliness of the plant. It is spotless just as a food plant should be, no doubt it is a shining example of how clean a food-manufacturing concern can be. The plant is geared to greater output than at present and can produce tons of chocolates and candy every week. All ingredients are mixed by machinery so that the human hand does not come in contact at any tune with the product. The female help a!1 wear smocks and head and hand coverings. The Adler firm is now contemplating the erection of a potato-chip plant adjacent to the chocolate factory.

As part of our new Carved by the Sea project to record stories about sites of folkloric and historic interest in Bay Roberts, we'd love to hear some of your memories of Adler's chocolates! If you remember the plant, the candies themselves, or the radio ads, leave a reply below, or send me an email at
