You start off with a video of the history of the Morley family of candies and Sanders candies and how they evolved expanded over the years. Not being a native Michigander, it really didn't mean that much to me. The Red Hat group that was there with my daughter and I were oohing and aahing all through the video "I remember this" or that.... so, I guess it'd be interesting if you have ties to the area. I mean it was interesting, I just didn't know much about the area at the time because we were just planning our move down here and I was trying to ply my daughters with chocolate to make it seem better! lol
After the video, there are samples. Then, you proceed to the viewing windows overlooking the production lines. WOW! These people got it going on! It was amazing to see how fast they do it (they've could whip Lucille Ball's boss in that one episode!) and it was interesting to see how the tops and bottoms of chocolates are covered separately and how the decorations are drizzled on top.(With chains!!) You also see how large items are molded like big bunnies and Santas and pretzels and potato chips are covered and bagged, sealed, boxed, and shipped,. Then, on to the sales floor for *more samples*!
They have each of the candies, cakes, sauces, cakes, ice creams, etc. that they make there available for purchase along with collectible items. It was a great way to spend a rainy hour and a half (call ahead to make reservations!) and learn something new about our new town where we were living. Since my husband had to work, we'll go back with him one day soon so he can see it too!
