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

This was easy to find right off the highway from Denver. It was fun to see actual candy production....it looks like very strenuous work and it is 95 degrees in the production room! You end your tour in a candy gift shop but you do get one free sample per person as well. Kids 8 and 12 enjoyed it (and... More

Tour itself consisted of a short video and then a guided tour through two rooms looking over the production and packaging areas behind safety glass. It was kind of cool to see them making the lollipops but not sure I would have gone out of the way to learn that. Neat company and the candy shop at the end is... More

This is a nice free tour for all ages that runs every half hour on the half hour. We luckily arrived at 28 past the hour right on time for the quick tour. First you watch a short video about the history of the company. Then you are guided through areas where you can watch the candy being made and... More

A short fun tour of the hand made candies by Hammond's Candy. Lots of wonderful candies and chocolates to choose from in the gift shop. We got to meet the CEO, and he was very friendly to our group.

Our family really enjoyed our factory tour at Hammond's. The tour was short and starts with a video about the history behind Hammond's, but in the factory you get to see workers making the special treats and you get a good idea of the process that goes in to candy production from start to finish. Of-course the kids loved the... More
