Put on a Hat and Watch People Make Candy

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.

We were there on Saturday after Christmas and the tour was packed. We came in 5 minutes before the next tour but had to wait for the one after that. We spent our wait time browsing the Christmas deals at the shop. If you need massive candy canes for $1 in various flavors this is the time to buy. The... More

We were glad to get the tour of Hammond's on short visit to Denver, but wished we could have done it on a different day. Unfortunately, our plans coincided with their Candy Cane Festival in mid-Dec. It was definitely a festive atmosphere (bounce houses, trolley rides, etc.), and the tour was interesting--although surprisingly short. There were simply too many people... More

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.
