We have been buying Hammond's candy every Christmas for over 20 years and we finally got to visit, the staff is very friendly and if you have a sweet tooth you can't miss this stop.

Enjoyed seeing the manufacturing of the candy. The tour starts with a movie. During the tour, you can peer into the manufacturing area and the tour guide brings various things into view in a monitor on the wall. She explained processes and about the equipment. After the tour, she gave us a candy sample and we could buy additional candy... More

I am certain this is the place that the saying came from! Very cool to see how they make various types of candy and other products. Free samples at the end of the free tour! Even better is the store with discounted treats to take home! Load up your suitcase for friends and family!

What do you do in late April when there is a snow storm and most the ski places are closed? You come here of course! We were so glad we found this gem. The tour was very interesting and the guide was knowledgeable. It was great to see how everything was made and we learned so much about how candy... More

Tours end early in the day so if this is on your list stop by before 2:30. The tour was quick, yet interesting. I was with someone who was fascinated by the process and loves cooking and baking so she enjoyed it more than I did. LOTS of small kiddos on this tour (candy shop- duh). I would recommend going...

It was a fun tour. A great way to see how delicious candies are still made the old fashioned way. Didn't find out until the end, but the free candy hats they give you are adjustable. 😉

The tour is free and they give you a free candy at the end (misshapen or broken large candy canes on our visit). The tour starts with a video that I actually enjoyed and had most people in the room answering the rhetorical questions out loud. You then get to watch the factory through large windows or on a screen... More

Nothing special about tour. Got to see lollipops being made and that was all. Nothing fancy. It was free to tour but once is enough.

The kids had a fun time watching the workers making the candy but it would have been better as just a window to look through at your leisure rather than a formal tour we waited 40 minutes for. The kids were motivate by the candy at the end end which was pretty great. Don't make it a priority but stop... More
