The last tour is at 2:15 so I missed it. The retail space was still open.

Tour a Candy Factory

Quick, fun tour. Staff very friendly. In and out in under an hour. Neat to see up close how candy is hand made in large batches.

Tour a Candy Factory

Short and sweet tour. Fun to see taffy and candy canes made and shaped.

Tour a Candy Factory

They were making Easter bunnies when we stopped by, and the kids were fascinated by the process. The gift shop has loads of discounted and hard-to find-candy.

Candy making.

Hammond's Candies Tour

Very interesting factory tour, with a video on the history of the company, followed by a walk-thru tour of the candy making and packaging. Fun and free, and you get a free sample at the end (and they have lots of discounted candy in the gift shop).
