128 Whitman’s Sampler Tin Box (submitted by John and Gail Buhler)


Whitman Chocolate had a long history in producing a quality product in the Philadelphia area.  Of particular interest was Mr. Whitman’s support for the soldiers in WWI.  He supplied millions of “tins” of his chocolate during the war to help support the morale of the soldiers.  One interesting fact was that the women packaging the chocolate would place notes in the chocolate tins.  This was a great help for the soldiers.  The “tins” have changed over the years but always brought back good memories.  This tin box was one I found among my father’s treasures.
