Tour the Birthplace of Moose Munch at the Harry and David Factory
We’ve already let you know about where Teddy Bears come to life this holiday season, but now we’re moving onto something a little tastier. Sure it might not be filled with all chocolate and candy, but nothing says we’re kind of friends like getting someone a fruit basket. The local florist is always an option for an overpriced bundle of bruised apples and oranges, but no one does it as well as Harry and David.
We’re just kidding about being strictly H&D people; we appreciate all sorts of presents, so this holiday season we’re suggesting that you take a peak at where all those truffles, cookies, and Moose Munch get their start. Harry and David offers factory tours four times a day during the week, and even though they're cranking out the baskets at full speed, they’ll gladly show you around this month.
Tours are just $5 per person, and your ticket doubles as a $5 coupon at the gift shop. Things last for about and hour or so, and you’ll get a first hand look at the kitchens behind many of the country’s favorite treats. All they ask is that you give them a call in advance before showing up for a tour at their Medford, Oregon factory.
They promise free chocolate at the end of every tour, but if you’re sweet tooth is still aching, we’re sure there are plenty of opportunities to stock up on snacks after the visit as well.
