My children (7 and 10) thought this was a lot of fun. They really liked watching the candy being pulled and stretched to make candy canes and ribbon candy. The candy store at the end didn’t hurt either! 😁

This was a short but fun activity. We started with a movie about the factory and then proceeded to a viewing area where we can watch the candy being made. A guide tells you what is going on in each step. They say that they...More

You just see people from a glass pulling candy. Only one view and not much to it. Don't bother- Unless you want to just go and buy some candy canes

The free tour seems very popular, so be sure to sign up online in advance so you won't be turned away. The film at the beginning is fun and informative. The tour after the film is relatively short, but they provide plenty of windows for...More

It was kind of crummy weather while visiting Denver Oct. '18. This was inside, so why not. Good choice. Everything is hand made. When the place was sold years ago, that was part of the arrangement. It is really neat to see things being made...More

We found the tour of Hammonds Candy company well worth your time. You get a real close up view of the candy being made. We were impressed by the happy friendly atmosphere there. And it’s a free tour!

Nice short trip about an hour to see everything. Plenty of free parking. Small place. But they had all my old fashioned candy brands. You can view the production through glass window or tv monitors.

Three years old could be OK. Watching the physical hand-making of candy held the attention of some small children who were part of our tour when we visited Hammond's. If your child can handle a visit to the grocery store... More
