A sweet tooth can demand a lot, and that can be both a good and bad thing. If the urge for something sweet is too much to resist, there’s only one place in Denver that can properly satisfy your craving: Hammond’s Candies Factory. The company has been supplying both the Mile High City and the world with high-quality sweets for nearly 100 years, from chocolates and candy canes to lollipops and brittle. When you’re in Denver, a Hammond’s candy factory tour is a must. Here are a few of things we love most about the best candy made in Colorado.
10 of the Sweetest Things About Hammond’s Candies Factory
Let’s start with something that nearly everyone can agree on: the lollipop! Hammond’s Candies Factory knows a thing about this super-popular treat, and it helped spread their sugary services across the nation in the mid-90s. Grape, pomegranate, and bubblegum are just a few of their flavors.
2. Holiday Candy
Whether you’re celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah, or the 4th of July, Hammond’s has the perfect treat to celebrate with!
3. McCraw’s Flat Taffy
Before Hammond’s existed, the McCraw family was cooking up their now-famous taffy. According to Hammond’s Candies’ website, the Denver company bought the Texas taffy business in 2010, adding one more great candy to their collection.
You can’t talk candy without talking chocolate. The Hammond’s candy factory crafts cocoa treats your taste buds have yet to dream of! Try the bacon and potato chip laden “Pigs N’ Taters” bar, a “More S’Mores” bar, or show someone you love them with an assorted chocolate box.
5. Wedding Candy
Treat your wedding guests with something sweet, like Very Berry candy canes, candy gift bags, or ribbon candy.
6. Factory Tours
There’s quite like a Hammond’s Candies Factory tour. See how the company’s delicious candy is made, learn about Hammond’s history, and get some free candy!
7. Peanut Brittle
Sure, you’ve probably tried peanut brittle, but if you haven’t had Hammond’s peanut brittle, you’re missing out. Keep it simple and go with the original flavor, or venture into tasty territory with Sea Salt & Caramel Drizzle, Jalapeno Lime, and Coconut and Spice!
8. Candy Canes
You don’t have to wait until December to enjoy a candy cane from Hammond’s Candies Factory. Flavors range from peppermint and cinnamon to apple pie, sugar plum, pumpkin pie, and root beer. There’s a flavor every season!
9. Cotton Candy
No good candy factory would be complete without cotton candy, and Hammond’s offers both classic and peppermint flavors.
There’s popcorn, and then there’s old fashioned, all natural, flavored popcorn! Hammond’s Candies Factory serves seven different flavors of this delicious bagged treat, including caramel, chocolate, and cinnamon.
