Visited the factory primarily as it was free, but also out of curiosity of seeing sweets (candy) being made. North of downtown, it was easy to find, and had plenty of free parking for visitors. We had a short wait until our tour started, but that allowed us to have a mooch around the store to see what goodies were... More

We found this tour listed on FactoryToursUSA web site and weren't sure what to expect, whether a working factory or a kitchy tourist trap. The Hammond Candy Factory was definitely the former, with a thriving commercial business that just happens to give tours too. The tour was free, with a short video first and then a narrated walk past three... More

The tour is only about 30 minutes and is primarily a straight line through production, but it is completely free and does come with a free sample of "oops candy" at the end of the tour. Highly recommended for families with young children, but avoid it during the second week of December for the candy cane festival.

Cute place to visit. Easy to find We like to mix free activities with pay ones while on vacation. And now it's fun to see their product in the retail store and know we have been there.

My 11 year old daughter really enjoyed this tour. It began with a quick video on how the Hammond's candy factory was established. There are video monitors to help those in the back of the group see what is going on. Plus it ends with a free sample. Gift shop had so much to choose from!

Neat little place that shares the history behind the Hammond name. In the era of electronics and fancy robots they still do it all old school and that is the best part. If you have kids they will love it and something for the adults as well. A room full of cotton candy flying in the air was the highlight.

The tour is free. Total time with introductory video and tour is less than an hour. Small kids can do it without much difficulty (small kids were in our group). Factory is rather small so the tour is not too long. Store is available before & after tour. We stocked up on goodies. Don't go if you have a weakness... More

It's neat tour that ends in the gift shop. It's a nice distraction like all travel is. It's especially enjoyable for the sweet tooths in your group.
