About Hammond's Candies

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.

Although we got here late we were able to still complete the tour. Our tour guide Sierra was absolutely friendly and very helpful. We are very happy to come here again.

The factory was hidden just of I-25, we did drive right by it at first. Definitely not in the middle of touristy spots in Denver. I’m sure we only saw a small portion of the facility however, it is an impressive operation and made us really appreciate the candy. Love the history - the children loved seeing the old machines while waiting for the tour. Everyone we met was really kind and our tour hostess was so energetic and well informed. It was just amazing to see the hard work that goes into the candy-making. I hope that the family run feel does really include everyone who works for Hammonds. It was great to the staff work together and help one another. It was just amazing to see candy from start to finish and all the hard work behind the tasty treats. Made us really appreciate all of the wonderful delights in the candy-shop at the end of the tour. Great way to show the children the people behind the candy and the hard work they put in to making something so special.

Really neat place with a family feel. The most friendly staff you’re ever gonna meet. We’re local and have been twice with guests. Oh, and the candy is amazing! Good Covid precautions.

I love local businesses and candy so Hammond's is best of both worlds! The tour is so informative about how much work and care goes into their handmade candies. Seeing it in person is even more amazing! Every time I take this tour, I wonder if they have openings lol Their store is such a treat! They have all their goodies and in the "Oops room," you can find their opps candies at a discounted price - they taste the same, but they just don't look up to par. Great! I'll take it!! If you're in the area, definitely do the tour!!

Did the Hammond's Candies tour today. There were over 15+ people there, and masks were mandatory. There were markings on the floor for where to stand for social distancing, but kids paid no attention, which means their parents didn't either. The guide gave no guidance about it, which would have made the tour more comfortable for us. They should also have made people leave the window as with distancing it only allows for 3 people at a time, but that wasn't suggested, and that made the tour a bit frustrating. The free candy cane is nice, and the candy-filled gift shop is a plus.
