We had friends visit from out-of-town and found out about the Hammond factory tour. We only had to wait a bit and the kids enjoyed thinking about what they might pick out in the gift shop after the tour. The tour itself was very informative - they have videos that play on the TV while the tour guide explains the... More

We stopped here after lunch at the nearby winery. Tour was informative and short. Candy selection is wonderful. Bought several things including the broken bags for $5. Would reccommend.

Hammond's candy factory offers free tours, which begins with a short film about their history. Then the fun begins! Watch candy chefs make candy! You'll be able to see them work through glass windows, and there's also a TV monitor so you can see up close as they mix sugar, fold sugar, pull the candy, and make them into their... More

I had seen Hammond's Candy Factory on a food network show and had wanted to go for a long time. Finally had a chance. Interesting to see how the candy is made, nice getting a sample and the candy story was any child's dream (even mine.)

Not a large factory tour. Good candy and chocolate. Spent about 30 mins in total. Kids seemed to enjoy it.

The tour is free. Which makes it awesome (in my books). Very cool to see candy being made right in front of you. As you end your tour you're given a sample - and not just some feeble piece of broken candy. You're given a full sized candy cane that has been broken. Amazing. But then you exit into the... More

What a neat candy factory to visit! It's definitely a must for tourists and even locals. The tour was very interesting and we enjoyed learning about the history of the company! The candy is excellent- the Mitchell Candy and peanut butter cups were my favorites! It's a great place for kids, but adults probably enjoy the tour more!

Small candy factory that provides free tours. This would be excellent for a family with small children as long as the factory is in full production. Day we visited only one line was working so you were really unable to get the real effect and experience of candy making. Our guide spent most of the time flipping through camera's on... More

My husband and I went to the candy factory on a whim while in Denver. Sure glad we did...what fun! We had an informative movie followed by a tour of the actual candy factory and the workers behind glass. They were in the midst of producing candy canes...are world famous for them....for the upcoming season. It was absolutely fascinating. At... More

It was great to see how candy canes are made. This is a short tour but informative. The marshmallow covered in caramel were delicious. I hadn't seen ribbon candy in years, and of course I ended up spending $20 in the shop.
