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.

A brief trip with an informative tour in Denver. Something to do while spending about an hour enjoying the environment and the little kids who were also visiting. Enjoyed the candies and chocolates.
