We stop at a lot of candy factories on our vacations. Usually they are mostly chocolate so this was a very nice change to see the ribbon candy shop. The outlet sop at the end has a ton of inexpensive outlet bags of candy to try and a lot of fun and retro packs at retail price to try. The... More

Came with my daughter, sister-in-law, and nieces and nephews. Enjoyed the tour and seeing how their candy is made. It's a relatively quick tour, and free, and they give you a free candy at the end. You can also walk around the gift shop and see/buy all sorts of cool candies and goodies. I hear it's really cool at Christmastime,... More

The informational video at the beginning of the tour had a lot of fun facts and history about Hammonds. The tour itself was just walking down a hallway and looking either through windows (where you couldn't really see much action) or poor quality live video. Not what I was hoping for. However they did have lot of "oops" candy for... More

We enjoyed the short tour at Hammond's, seeing how they make candy canes & other sweets by hand...a desired commodity in the 'high end' culinary market, you'll find their treats at places like Williams Sonoma at holiday time! But with a short tour, you can leave with your own hand-made & hand-packaged candy cane or lollipop...allbeit, it's a defect from... More

A fairly typical food factory tour. (Look through glass and see the workers in process of producing product. ). While we were there, we saw swirling lollipops being made. Seeing some of the equipment was cool. A lot of positive information and public relations for the company. At the end we received a free sample and finished at the candy... More

There was a long wait for the tour to start, and the instructional informational discussion was longer than the actual tour. We watched a guy make a lollipop, and some other stuff. It was a tad underwhelming unfortunately. The candy store at the end was swell though.

This isn't a long experience but it was fun to stop at and see how Hammond's is making candy and has been for a long time. Their specialty is hard candy/candy canes and that was interesting to see the workers preparing a batch of root beer candy canes.

Over the past 90 years, the “Mile High” city of Denver, Colorado, has seen a number of fine chocolate and candy manufacturers come and go, but one special company is still very much in business. That business is Hammonds Candies. I have to say that I am very glad they are still here today. I have visited Hammonds Candies many... More

Our family visited the Hammond's Candy factory and we were pleasantly surprised. It was great to see a company care about quality the way they do and still make their candy by hand every day. You get an inside peek at how they make the candy and you also get free samples. It's a free tour that takes about 30-45... More

This is the second time we have been to Denver and the second time visiting Hammond's. Even if you have been already it is worth going back. We did the tour both times and both times we learned different things. It is worth the trip and make sure you pick up some candy to take home as well. Also you... More
