“little disappointed”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

There is no doubt that the candy is very good and the workers are knowledgable and friendly. The tour, however, was a little disappointing. We watch a short video and then stood in front of a window which separated us from the production floor. We watched a monitor above to see the different things that were happening in the room. It is great that the family lets us in the factory at all. But, as far as a tour goes, it was more like an exhibit.

The factory store was not one in which to find bargains.

“Free tour and sweet treats”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

I appreciated the free tour in showing out of town visitors another local Colorado experience. Tour start every half an hour and include a video as well as a short guided tour of the facility through cameras and observation windows. In some ways I wish we could have been closer to the production process, but the information was interesting and the treats we picked up afterwards were delicious!

“Free and very entertaining”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

A comprehensive and intersting tour and free candy at the end of the tour. Well worth the trip to the industrial estate.

“An OK tour, nice if you are in the area, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

My family of 5 did this tour this past week. It was a very quick tour but it was interesting to see how it is made. While we were watching the actual candy making part one of the other people on the tour pointed out one of the workers on the line who kept wiping her nose. It became the running joke on our tour that we want the candy that she didn't touch, lol.

Fun, free tour with a great candy shop. Good selection of candy that doesn't use artificial colors. They also had great sales on candy.
