My mother-in-law has lived in Denver for over 25 years and never knew this gem existed but luckily we found out about it from the Denver Botanical Garden where they sell the lollies. Fun tour with free samples at the end, huge windows to see the candy being made (would help to have closed captioning on the video in the tour for hard of hearing/deaf patrons), lots to choose from in the gift shop. Mitchells Sweets with caramel and marshmallow almost killed me but I wish I could eat a pound at a time. Chocolate filled peppermint candy canes? YUM!

Visited on Dec 22 with my entire family - adults and kids. The tour lasts 30 minutes and includes a short video on the history of the 90 year old local company, a view into the room where they make all the candy with commentary from a tour guide, a walk down a hallway showing pictures and more history, and a look into the area where they hand package all the treats. At the end of the tour we received a full size nutmeg flavored candy cane. Of course the tour ends in the shop. No one can resist all the delicious and visually stunning treats! Everyone we encountered was very friendly. I learned you can also book kids bday parties there as well. Have fun!

Great fun! Free factory tours on the half hour detailing step by step how the candy is entirely handmade. Free samples at the end. The gift shop is beautiful filled with many tempting treats.

The website states that the tour lasts about 30 min- which for the most part was correct. Everything was great, but BEWARE going in the afternoon during the week. We went and had to share our tour time with an Elementary School. It was horrible.
Our tour guide was less than helpful and educated about what was going on, but I still enjoyed it very much and will go back. They had large windows that actually looked into the factory. They also have video camera's placed throughout the factory floor and you were able to see people working in different sections. The gift shop was really nice with items priced at many appropriate levels.
I will continue to take out of town guests to Hammond Candy Factory.
