Visit Denver: Hammond's Candies Factory Tour

One of the highlights of our trip to Denver was the Hammond's Candies Factory Tour.

This free, 30-minute tour starts of with a short video of the history of Hammond's Candies, and then you are taken to viewing rooms where you can watch factory employees work their magic on sweet confections.

Our guide went into detail about what the employees were doing in the different rooms. We learned about what ingredients went into certain candies, and how they must cool, twist, and cut gigantic logs of candies down until they reach their desired shape and size.

It was very neat to watch, and so interesting to learn about how some of the treats are made.

At the end of the tour, each guest gets an "oops" (broken) Candy Cane.
And then if you wish, it's time to shop!

We bought A LOT of omiyage from Hammond's - chocolate bars, the popular Mitchel Sweets, and popcorn.

Such a "sweet" way to spend some time in Denver!
