About Hammond's Candies
Nearly 100 years ago, Carl T. Hammond, Sr. opened Hammond’s Candy Factory in Denver with a commitment to quality. While we started as a small family business with a loyal local following, we have now grown into an iconic brand with international distribution. Hammond’s is proud to delight fans of all ages with scrumptious treats crafted by hand from start to finish. Wonder how our lollipops, candy canes and other Hammond’s treats are made? Bring your curiosity and your sweet tooth for a complimentary tour of our factory. Thousands of kids and kids at heart visit us every year to watch as their favorite treats are pulled, twisted, shaped and packaged by hand—just like they have been since 1920.

A quite short, but nice non the less, experience. They showed a mini doc on the history of the company and tour of the factory. At the end you're gifted a broken candy cane.

Nice tour. Informative video and you can see quite a bit as you walk along looking through the windows. Interesting process. Their chocolate products aren't that great in my estimation. Nice outing though.

The tour is interesting. It would be better if they didn’t let so many people go at the same time. It made it hard to see all the areas where they were making the candy. They did have tv monitors but it’s not the same....More

This is a great place to take kids to see how handmade candy is made. The free sample after the tour was very good. We enjoyed some of the awesome handmade chocolates before we left. A place well worth visiting!
