Very great tour, that's FREE. It is a short tour where you get to observe the candy making process. The real fun begins when you get fee stuff and get to purchase stuff in the store. I can guarantee that you'll be overwhelmed by the variety and magnitude of candy.

Great 30 minute tour for the whole family. Teenagers may find it a little slow paced and boring. You see the whole candy production of what is being made for the day, which is often candy canes and something with chocolate. This is a fairly small candy company, so you only walk about 200ft to see the entire candy operation.... More

Long wait for the free tour even for a Tuesday. Wait was longer than the tour. There was a rude older lady at the tour check-in. Maybe it was getting a little late in the day for her??? The tour includes a 5 minute video prior to the start. We walked to the next two rooms for observation of making... More

Hammond's Candy is the largest candy factory to still make the candy by hand. Very cool to watch this process and learn more about how they make the candy. At the end of the tour, they give you a free treat. During our tour we each received a large candy cane. Definitely a must do. Fun for everyone and completely... More

If you've never seen candy canes being made, here's your chance. Hammond's makes mostly hard candy, but some chocolate. You get to watch activity in the kitchen and the packaging area. Suggest going earlier in the day. We were on the last tour at 3:00 and most of the kitchen was inactive.

We were in Denver for a family reunion and there were 17 of us that did the candy making tour they offer. Tour is free and fun for all ages. We were lucky that when we were there they were having their annual garage sale and got some yummy candy at a great price.

Free behind the scenes view of the candy makers in action. It kept the kids and adults interested. Huge selection of chocolates and candies to choose from in the gift shop. Tours every 30 minutes and the last one is at 3pm. Staff was very nice and answered all questions the kids had. If you are in that area of... More

This half hour tour of the candy factory was both free and informative. We were amazed at how much needs to be done manually. We were fortunate to on the day of a "garage sale" which provided us with many good buys. Also, we enjoyed the gift of candy after the tour.

I wasn't sure what to expect and kind of half-heartedly went here. I was so wrong! They showed how their candy is all made, by hand! It was amazing to see an employee wrapping ropes of candy cane to make ribbon candy. Of course, there was a gift shop where I spent more than I planned to, but it was... More
