The staff was polite and friendly. The factory store was very large and had candies that I didn't even know existed. The tour was relatively short but very informative. A free rootbeer candy cane at the end of it didn't hurt either.

This is an interesting, quick tour of where they make Hammond's Candy. How cool to see the candy in liquid form and being shaped by hand. At the end we each received a free big candy cane. The kids loved this place and it was definitely worth our time. The tour lasts 30 minutes.

I saw this place on Unwrapped years ago and thought I'd take the opportunity to visit. I read some reviews before I'm doing this posting, so I want to clear up some info. The factory isn't in a "sketchy" area--it's in an industrial area because it's a factory! I don't know where people think factories should be... Anyway, not scary... More

We enjoyed the candy factory in the afternoon after some morning site-seeing in Denver. This is really a quick activity since the tours are only about 15 minutes long. However, it was really interesting to learn how the candy is made and how little the process has changed over the years. It was fun to watch the candy makers but... More

We did the tour at the factory and sadly there wasn't much going on as far as the candy making, so we got to see the tables and the end of some of the packaging process. Free samples of the broken items and lots of recommendations for new and different items. I am glad that the tour was free, but... More

We were looking for something fun and free to do in Denver with the kids as we were passing through, and Hammond's was great for that. The kids were fascinated with the candy factory. The tour is free so it is a great activity to do on a budget, and they gave the kids free samples at the end of... More

The facility is quite nice and the products look good, but very expensive. The tour was average at best with a horrible tour guide who really never did explain anything. Enjoyed watching, could have done without her talking.

My 10 year old and I enjoyed the tour but they were only making hard candy. We would have liked to seen them make the chocolates but they only do that occasionally. Recommend the chocolate covered peanut brittle and chocolate covered peanuts. The hard candy is okay but takes a lot of licks to get to the flavor which is... More
