We took the free tour and would have loved it even if they charged us. You watch a little movie at first to get a history of the company, then you go inside the factory. While they make chocolate and peanut brittle, it's really fun to watch them make candy canes. You stand in a long hallway with large windows... More

We stopped by Hammond's for their candy tour on Tuesday(11/11) and went on the 1st tour of the day at 9:30AM. It was only the 2 of us and another group. It made the tour super enjoyable to have such a small tour group. It was interesting to watch the workers make & package candy. The gift shop was full... More

We visited Hammond's for a birthday party for our grandson. As part of the party, we were given a tour of the factory which was nothing fancy, but interesting. I enjoy seeing how things are made, and it was somewhat unbelievable to me that they continue to make all their candies by hand in today's world of automation. The sales... More

We went in June and they had their annual "garage sale". A lot of steeply discounted items throughout the retail space. A really good value if you're looking to score some candy and other items cheap! As far as the tour went though, there's really not much to see. We saw them making candy canes and then packing them in... More

I had always seen it on TV. I am from Puerto Rico and working in Denver for few months. When I realized this place was here I ran to it. It feels like you are a little kid again...like they say "like a kid in a candy store"... A dream come true

Being a sweet lover and curious about the way things are manufactured, I knew we had the visit the Hammond Candy Co. The tour was average. The facilitator was very nice and really understood the process but didn't deliver her message well. I didn't understand much of what she was telling us because she jumped from topic to topic. I...

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
