Thanks to those radio stations that only play Christmas music, we’ve had thoughts of candy canes dancing through our head since Thanksgiving. Instead of just licking through a few of the sweet treats and drooling over some of the great holiday travel deals, we decided to do something about it, like take a tour of a candy cane factory. Right in Denver sits Hammond’s Candies, and they would love to show you around their place.
They’ve been making candy since 1920, and they continue to do things the old-fashioned way. You'll find more than just candy canes at Hammond's though; they have peppermint straws, clove pillows, and even some candy coal for those that have been naughty this year. Miles of ribbon candy including bunches formed into snowflakes are flowing through the factory now until the big day later this month.
Tours run everyday from 9am until 3pm and take place about every 30 minutes. They’ll show you around on Saturday too, but the workers have the day off, so there isn’t any production. If you’re going to go, escape work a little early or take a long lunch so you can see the candy creators do their magic.
The tours are totally free, and all you have to do is call (303) 333-5588 x 110 and tell them you are coming. Of course there’ll be a stop at their candy shop on the way out so you can satisfy your sweet tooth while loading up on some unique stocking stuffers. Just save a couple pieces of candy for us!
