Indulging in Sweet Delights: Platter’s Chocolate Factory Custard of the Week!

If you have a sweet tooth and an adventurous palate, then Platter’s Chocolate Factory has just the treat for you – our custard of the week. It all began in the basement of a house in East Felton Street in North Tonawanda with molded orange chocolate. A move to Oliver Street delivered immediate success, which would allow us to expand our manufacturing and eventually open a small old-fashioned Ice Cream Shoppe.

Once we made a move to the iconic Wurlitzer Building we opened a coffee specialty café and expanded our Ice Cream Shoppe. A sampling of what we offer all year long in our Ice Cream Shoppe includes:

  • Over 34 flavors of hard ice cream
  • Fresh made lemon ice made right here, in our candy kitchen
  • Traditional French vanilla and chocolate custard and our specialty orange chocolate custard
  • Ice cream cakes and pies made fresh daily

Among all these delectable treats, our custard of the week is a unique offering that keeps our customers coming back for more.
