We arrived late. That was the highlight and let us join the tour that just started. Seeing the candy was interesting. However, the people behind the counter were more interested in telling me "someone will be with me shortly." So, at the 2nd time I walked away refusing to purchase. Just go to a good grocery store instead.

We went on the morning tour with 2 window stops. It was informative, the workers make candy, everything is done by hand. The best part was at the end, got some free samples and looked and shopped around their store. Tons of candy, lollipops, chocolate, and marshmallow fluff. My kids enjoyed it and best of all it was free!

The video at the beginning of the tour is ok...has some history...maybe a little long. The tour guide provided a lot of history of the company and explained what was going on in the factory. The windows were great so we could see candy being made. There are video cameras we were able to view on a monitor for areas... More

How many things are actually free nowadays?? This short, informative tour was free!! (And they even give you a free broken candy cane at the end of the tour!) I was AMAZED at the amount of hard work that goes into making each candy!! (The employees are SUCH hard workers and they do it all in the part of the... More

This is a quick stop but worth it and free. The tour is interesting, with a short video beforehand. Then you get to watch employees hand making candy! It was a treat. Literally - just try getting out without spending some money in the well-stocked gift shop!

FREE tour. Short and sweet. Get it?? Short tour involving one room which one can view candy canes being made (by hand) and packaged. Very interesting and old timey. Meaning very little automation. Free samples at the end. Gift shop is NICE. All types of candy canes. Chocolate. Fudge. Taffy. Great trip for young kids! Great trips for grandparents!

Needed to fill in the last day of our trip. This tour (short) was very informative and interesting. In a time where everything seems to be mass produced, it's good to see some things are still made the old fashioned way. Free, slightly damaged but wrapped cane at the end. The tour is free but I bet you can't leave... More

Less than a hour tour. FREE! We happened to get stuck with 20 five year olds on the tour. I had a great listening to the little ones amazement. Worth the trip and the candy is yummy.

Nice sincere tour of a candy factory that ships candy all over the country. We watched the candy being made behind the glass windows while the tour guide explained the process. Was amazed at the size of the candy being made and turned into the candy canes. The kids love the paper hats given, adults do too. The shop offers... More

It was a fun 30 min tour. I am glad that Colorado still has some locally owned businesses. My kids loved watching the candy canes be made! Can't wait to return for candy cane festival in December.
