I didn't even know this place existed. It isn't a long tour, but it's interesting, and, it's FREE!!! I learned that this candy is still hand-shaped. Who knew??

Took our granddaughter here on a rainy afternoon, hoping to see candy being made. Saw a pot of liquid poured out onto a table. Then some "leftover Christmas candy" (quote from the guide), dumped into it to be recycled. The only workers there were behind a cabinet and we couldn't see what they were doing. All we saw were empty... More

We got lucky and there was room on the next tour when we arrived. The video and tour guide kept it interesting and watching the workers was fun for everyone. And of course we left with a bag full of candy. Our favorites were the piggy backs, caramels, and caramel popcorn.

Great Free Tour! This is by far one of the best places to see in Denver! This is for all ages! The history is very informative of the candy making process. The staff is great with answering questions. Who knew that candy making is so fun. Of course be sure to shop in the store for a few goodies to... More

Went on a tour of the factory then shopped in the candy store. While the tour was informative and there was a small group of people, I recommend going in the beginning of the day. According to the tour guide that is when all the main candy making is done Which was evident as all they were doing was finishing... More

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!
