Unusual Kosher Certification

One of my favorite clients is located across the street from the Wilbur Chocolate factory store in Lititz, PA (where the soft pretzel also was invented), and they brought me a large box of Wilbur Buds, which is what Hershey's Kisses would be if they were made with really, really good chocolate. My (kosher-keeping) associates asked if they were kosher, and I couldn't tell from the website (and they haven't responded to my e-mail inquiry), but the box has an odd K on the label that none of us have seen before. It's a K (about 1/3 inches high) made of three thin rectangles (one vertical, and the other two hitting that one to form the arms of the K), with tiny somethings that might be "D"s in the top and bottom spaces (just to the right of the vertical line), and "dairy" printed to the right of the K (the box has milk and dark chocolate buds). So obviously someone there is trying to say this is kosher, but who? It's obviously not the OU version of the K. Has anyone seen this one before?
