Our Hammond's Candy Factory Tour Experience
We learned about Hammond’s while visiting the Four Mile Historic Park. One of the things I love about exploring is that you discover new places to go.
I booked our reservation online the week prior. Scheduling only took a few clicks. It was quick, easy, and free!
Our tour started right on time. We were asked to take a seat in the video viewing area. The video was about 10 minutes long. It discussed how Hammond’s began as one entrepreneur with a vision. The company slowly grew and has since even acquired other brands.
The video had trivia questions We had fun guessing the answers.
We were guided to the factory area. We watched employees make candy from behind the Plexiglas. It was interesting to watch all of the machines they used. They worked quickly and accurately. The teamwork between employees was amazing! We learned a lot of interesting facts during the tour.
Everyone was given a piece of candy at the end of the tour. The tour guide did say that sometimes what they hand out varies. We were each given a candy cane. It was broken, but tasty regardless.
Hammond's Retail Store
