The day we went there it seemed there were hundreds of people. The tour is informative and interesting as you look down into the processing area and watch the candy actually being made. The young lady who was our tour guide had just started working there so she was really not able to answer some of the questions people were... More

Suprised how many steps to making a lotbean. Great candy shop with tons of flavors. A bit expensive for a pound but for flavors not in the stores what do you expect.Go early lots of people.

This is a great tour if you are with kids. They will love the sights and sounds as you wait in line. It will take their minds off the wait. We got there before 10:00AM so only waited a few minutes. By the time we left, I estimated the wait at about an hour. The tour is above the factory... More

Went here a couple years ago and boy has it gotten popular. The line for the tour was out to the parking lot. Cute tour, but the Jelly Belly Candy is really something special. I think the last time we were here it wasn't summer time with all the kids out of school, never waited in line before, but it's... More

We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was a total blast! Fair warning: if you visit the factory on a weekend you will only see the machinery and still production taking place, no ACTIVE jellybean making... We walked in the front door and were put right on the next tour within a matter of minutes. Everybody is giving a... More

If you like jelly beans, and you find yourself near Fairfield of on a tour. Go before 4pm and not on a Friday to better guarantee factory operations. Best part was the store with the belly flops, defective beans for cheap. Also have very cute mini bins to dispense them.

We were visiting San Franciso and decided to drive up to Fairfield, CA to go to the Jelly Belly Factory. We were so excited! We waited only 5 minutes or so for the tour to start and they they made the announcement that the "factory" part of the tour was closed. Evidently they have a 3 week hiatus in June/July... More

What a fun place to visit! Regardless of your age, you will feel like a kid again after your visit. The jelly bean "paintings" are amazing. The tour is very interesting and informative. And don't forget to try the samples offered.

Considering I don't actually like jelly beans I was impressed with the Jelly Belly factory and tour. Quite unbelievable how much work goes into one little jelly bean. 55 flavours, including their gross range - earwax, baby wipes, vomit, pencil shavings and grass clippings. For something different take a tour, go early though to beat the long lines.

Wow, you actually get to see how jelly belly are made and pack......plus a history of the company and former governor and president Ronald Reagan relation. The waiting was not that long at all ~ 15 minutes, free samples up to 3 flavors + of course - the gift shop.......so much to choose from. Overall, a great tour. Well Done... More
