This is a good place to go if you like candy, or if you want to kill an hour for free in the Denver area. Tours run every hour and half hour, so try to get there about 15 min before the tour starts. You first watch a 10 minute video about the history of the factory, then you go... More

My husband and I visited Hammond's Candy several years ago and still talk about our tour to this day. We bought a private tour (about $50 total?) and received more than that back in free candy. We were given the opportunity to make candy canes, hard candies and caramel covered marshmallows. So fun and delicious! Our tour guide was friendly... More

What a fun place to take the kids. We went with 3 grandkids ages 7, 12 and 15 who had a blast filling their own bag of candy. Unfortunately we were not able to take the tour. I knew that they ran every 30 minutes and expected the longest we would need to wait would be 30 minutes. WRONG! They... More

The tour is short and sweet and free. Lots of good information about candy making and about an American Icon. We got a great free sample and then shopping in the little store was fun! I really enjoyed this, I spent about an hour and a half there

The Hammonds building is a little hard to find. There was a small sign and in all our excitement we passed it twice.. The tour was sweet! (pun intended). We showed up at 12 and we able to make it on the 12:30 tour. I would suggest getting there early because a big crowd was behind us and they all... More

I've been on candy factory tours where they take you on a tour of the whole factory and give you candy samples. This was not that type of tour. There was an interesting video of how the candy was made, then they bring you in a room to see the candy being made through a glass window, but you only... More

We visited on a Saturday. Not too much was happening in the factory, but we still got an idea of how they make some of their candy. Visiting on a different day might be better, but we were glad that we went. It's neat to know that some candy is still handmade.

We always have to stop in her for some jelly belly jelly beans. They have a huge selection along with a ton of fudge and the factory tour is cook too!

The one positive is that it is free. I guess you get what you pay for. Very short "tour", nothing was happening in the factory, the guide kept apologizing because her camera was malfunctioning. The workers seemed bored and unhappy, and the "treat" at the end is an old, broken candy cane from the Christmas season. This seemed like a... More
