“A "Sweet" Tour!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

Happened to be staying at a nearby inn and stumbled upon the Spangler Factory Tour. It is a neat little trolley tour with video footage of the candy making process, views of packing areas and interesting tidbits about dum dums, candy canes and circus peanuts. If you are in the area, stop by for an hour of fun.

“Fun little trip with the family!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

My kids (ages 7, 4, and 2) had fun on the trolley tour and picking out some candy! A neat trip! Afterwards we had a picnic lunch and played at the imagination station playground in Bryan (the employee at Spangler gave us directions there)! Definitely a fun day trip with the kids!

“Don't Waste Your Money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We came upon the Spangler Candy Factory purely by accident and made the mistake of taking the Candy Factory Tour. After they have everyone put on hair and beard hairnets, they take you in a trolley for nothing more than a drive through the warehouse, where all you get to see is mountains of flat boxes and pallets and pallets of boxed candies. You never get anywhere near any candy factory. The only candy making you get to see is on the TV monitors that they have mounted inside the trolley. If we at least had the opportunity to view any of the candy making process through a window showing the employees at work - making the actual candy maybe I wouldn't feel so cheated. Don't waste your time or money. Drive up the road and see something else - anything else!

“I have been taking my daycare here for a few years..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Every year I take my daycare children here. It isn't a long tour, but it is fun. The kids really enjoy the trolly ride. If it can keep six kids (2-10) entertained for an hour ( between the ride and meusum, then I give it a thumbs up.
