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.

This is a fun way to kill about an hour if you are in town. We went on the Free tour and then picked something out in the candy shop after. The candy was delicious and it was fun to see it being made during the tour.

Had a nice 30 min tour. Staff was very polite and was able to answer our questions while we watched them make candy cane's through a large viewing area, they entire factory is pretty open to viewing and the gift show allows you to make purchases either before or after the tour. They also give out a sample of candy... More

It was targeted to children, as one might expect. I was sorry to see that the old tour format ended when the company moved. You used to be able to watch a few candy makers working. Now, you watch a large group of workers behind glass (and they can see you watching them). Probably more sanitary though.

The staff was polite and friendly. The factory store was very large and had candies that I didn't even know existed. The tour was relatively short but very informative. A free rootbeer candy cane at the end of it didn't hurt either.

This is an interesting, quick tour of where they make Hammond's Candy. How cool to see the candy in liquid form and being shaped by hand. At the end we each received a free big candy cane. The kids loved this place and it was definitely worth our time. The tour lasts 30 minutes.

I saw this place on Unwrapped years ago and thought I'd take the opportunity to visit. I read some reviews before I'm doing this posting, so I want to clear up some info. The factory isn't in a "sketchy" area--it's in an industrial area because it's a factory! I don't know where people think factories should be... Anyway, not scary... More
