As factory tours go, this one is a little more relaxed than some we've taken. If you love candy, this is a very dangerous place to be. As all factory tours do, this one empties you out into a large candy shop with every single item Hammond's makes on offer. Their claim to fame is hard candy. Once you see... More

This is a hard place to find and the cab drivers in Denver have no idea where this place is. But it is a real treasure. They offer free tours every 1/2 hour. You can see the chefs as they stretch and mold the amazing candies into candy canes or pops. The tour is different every time you come as... More

Very interesting and colorful. MUCH more candy than I thought they would have to sell. Interesting history. Enjoyable for any age: old, middle age and young or just young at heart. Don't forget to get your free hat and take a picture. FREE tour. Probably earlier in the day tours, you would see more on the manufacturing side. We went... More

If you are going to tour the facility, don't expect much. It last about 15 minutes, you learn a little bit about making candy, and see a whopping 2 rooms. Really not much to say about the tour; it's free, but it's also pretty uninteresting. At the end of the tour they pass out sample pieces of taffy (or at... More

We arrived for the 1.30pm tour on a Saturday and by the time we got past the candy making widows, to the chocolate, fairy floss & popcorn rooms, everyone was cleaning up to go home. So perhaps try going in the morning. We started with a short video which was good, lots of info, then moved to the viewing area.... More

If you like candy this is a must see tour. The tour is free and lasts approx. 30 min. You actually get to see how the candy is made and processed. You receive a free candy at the end of your tour. The candy shop is great and has various flavors of original candy canes. These candy canes are larger... More

Fun place to visit. Suggest going earlier in the day to see more of the candy making. We went on the last tour at 3 pm and not much was being done except taffy pulling. However it was interesting to hear the history of the factory. There is a store with candy that sells the candy that Hammonds produces.

Love returning here, and heading to the seconds/overrun room. We were lucky - they were having an "extra" sale that day!

We really enjoyed this tour. So interesting on how the company got started, & the gift/candy shop was incredible. Spent way too much money, but everything looked so good. Best part! The tour was free!!!!

Maybe it's just because I am a massive Hammond's Candy fan that I felt a little bit disappointed that I had to watch the candy being made through glass windows, but I do wish there was more than just a quick video and commentary through the glass afterward. They do give you a free piece of 'seconds' type candy as... More
