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.

Went here with 2 kids age 9 and 14. Both enjoyed the tour and watching them make candy. Would recommend for anyone looking to something to do. The tour only last about 30 minutes. The kids enjoyed the free candy at the end!!

This was a fun stop on vacation. The tour is pretty short (30 min or so), but is pretty cool. You can see people working candy, mixing, shaping, wrapping. Tour starts with a video about the timeline of the company and ends in the candy...More
