Gertrude Hawk Chocolates
Places to Eat & Drink: Treats
Crafting Delicious, Quality Chocolates Since 1936
Gertrude Hawk Chocolates began with humble origins in Scranton as a small, personal project of Gertrude (Jones) Hawk to make money during the Great Depression. Today, Gertrude Hawk Chocolates has grown into a national business with more than 60 retail store locations located across Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey and a growing e-commerce website.
The company’s signature Smidgens® remain the number one retail seller. However, customers also love the wide selection of candy bars, Teenie Poppers®, and classic assorted chocolates. Chocolate-covered strawberries, apples, cookies, and more are all hand-dipped to perfection. They also have fudge, chocolate molds, and a sugar-free collection.
A treat from Gertrude Hawk makes a sweet gift. They offer seasonal candies and gift baskets for any occasion.
Fundraising packages are available for schools and organizations—a component of the business that was near and dear to Gertrude’s heart.
