I had seen Hammond's Candy Factory on a food network show and had wanted to go for a long time. Finally had a chance. Interesting to see how the candy is made, nice getting a sample and the candy story was any child's dream (even mine.)

Not a large factory tour. Good candy and chocolate. Spent about 30 mins in total. Kids seemed to enjoy it.

The tour is free. Which makes it awesome (in my books). Very cool to see candy being made right in front of you. As you end your tour you're given a sample - and not just some feeble piece of broken candy. You're given a full sized candy cane that has been broken. Amazing. But then you exit into the... More

What a neat candy factory to visit! It's definitely a must for tourists and even locals. The tour was very interesting and we enjoyed learning about the history of the company! The candy is excellent- the Mitchell Candy and peanut butter cups were my favorites! It's a great place for kids, but adults probably enjoy the tour more!

Small candy factory that provides free tours. This would be excellent for a family with small children as long as the factory is in full production. Day we visited only one line was working so you were really unable to get the real effect and experience of candy making. Our guide spent most of the time flipping through camera's on... More

My husband and I went to the candy factory on a whim while in Denver. Sure glad we did...what fun! We had an informative movie followed by a tour of the actual candy factory and the workers behind glass. They were in the midst of producing candy canes...are world famous for them....for the upcoming season. It was absolutely fascinating. At... More

It was great to see how candy canes are made. This is a short tour but informative. The marshmallow covered in caramel were delicious. I hadn't seen ribbon candy in years, and of course I ended up spending $20 in the shop.

The tour is quite brief, mostly a video and a walk down a large hallway banked with windows overlooking the candy making rooms. The kids there went nuts and it was pretty cool watching the candy canes being made. It's casual and relaxed. It is much more enjoyable going during off days/hours. We went on a Monday at 2pm about... More

Did a tour of the candy factory, it's amazing that this place still makes all there candy by hand. A must place to go to when visiting Denver Colorado

Go if you have never been before, but once may be enough. You do not actually enter the factory you stand in a hallway observing behind the glass. Could be interesting if you can catch them at full production, pretty ho-hum otherwise. Watch the website/newspaper for special events, especially the Candy Cane Festival in December. Store: Great place to get... More
