With an abundance of superb ingredients in the surrounding countryside it's inevitable that the French would combine them all together and make something truly delicious.
Stuck for something to do, my grown up children and I decided to pop along and take a look. It's on an industrial estate past McDonald's, so keep going, you're bound to see the signs. The entrance fee was €4 which didn't seem too bad. We were greeted by a delightful young lady with samples of their products and were allowed 2 each- delicious. As one of our party didn't speak French we were given a guide in English. However, the French isn't too complicated to understand and there are a lot of pictograms to help you understand both the history and process of manufacture of the delicacies. There are windows to see onto the factory floor as well as videos with dual language telling you about the different stages of manufacture. At the time we visited- just before lunch- they were finishing off a run of salted caramels. We were then joined by the young lady who had greeted us and given a little more information in both English and French as well as her answering any questions we had, and we're given some more caramels to try. It was good to see something happening; I suspect the earlier you can go the more you will see, but it may also be busier. Once our tour was over, we headed to the boutique to buy some souvenirs of the visit. They also do wonderful ice cream, but the kiosk doesn't open until 1pm, so we went into town for lunch and returned later for an extremely calorific and delicious ice cream 😋

Small museum about the history of the caramel-production. The most interesting part is seeing them make the caramels in the factory (only before noon).
Plus a visit in the shop for some caramels for the road :-)
Great to visit with kids!

A stop in to grab a bag or two of caramels is a must. There are plenty of other treats to be had, but the biggest of all is the soft serve available outside. Get the salted caramel, you won't be disappointed.

Stopped here with our Normandy Beaches guide and we were delighted! Yummy caramels, lots of free samples and an ice cream store attached (we didn’t try). Don’t miss if you are in the area.

This small museum gives a great history and background of the food industry in the Isigny region, including calvados spirit, dairy products and seafood. The main attraction is the open window to the caramel factory where you can watch the production line taking place. All exhibits are in French but guide books for other languages available from the kiosk. A good indoor activity, which should last about an hour. There is a great shop just opposite the museum with plenty of local food and caramels.

We went on a wet morning but found the museum pricey to go in and all narrated in French so we didn’t bother and decided to just go to the shop. Again, VERY expensive and a bit of a let down. Then the ice cream - wonderful consistency but very strange taste. There was caramel, vanilla or strawberry. The caramel tasted like burnt sugar, the vanilla had a peculiar plastic like taste. We didn’t try strawberry. Okay prices, €1.80 for a petit tub which was HUGE!

If you are travelling with children this is a perfect thing for one of the cold and/or rainy days that you can more or less expect to have if you are staying for a week or more.
You are watching the actual workers so when they go for lunch, nothing happens. You can watch the exhibits and videos then, but it is much more interesting to see the real action.
The children were entertained for the whole time and really enjoyed the visit.

If you are in this area of France, just go. You'll be glad you did. The tour was in French, but really it doesn't matter. You can watch the process and understand what's happening. And then you get to sample all the deliciousness.

We drove 45min from Juno beach tot arrive (on the commercial they said 15min from the landing beaches truth nr told they didn't say which one) but were very excited because they are so delicious.
The tour hours are from 9 to 17h, we arrived at 15h to hear that the production can only be seen in the morning (only during the week).
So actually we could only have seen a movie about the production.
They should be honest and just say on the commercials that you can only visit the production in the morning. It's just to lure you in for the shop.
The shop is very large and you can buy the caramels at a good price but all the other regional products are at tourist trap prices.
I would say that it's not worth it if you have to drive far to get to it but if you're in the surroundings and can get to it in the morning it's a nice visit. A bag of 1 kg of caramels is at +/- 16€

The museum/factory demo thing is remarkably small and not massively interesting, l reckon you can walk the whole thing in under 10 minutes.
Honestly it is not worth the euros especially if you have a family of 5!

Save your money and spend it in the shop, lots of free samples, amazing smells and some really interesting bits and bobs. The shop is worth the visit.
