The Gigantic Candy Store In Colorado You’ll Want To Visit Over And Over Again
Who can take a rainbow, wrap it in a sigh, and then soak it in the sun and make a groovy lemon pie? Why the candy (wo)man can, of course! Just where does one find this person? At this incredible Colorado candy store and factory!
Hiding out in Denver is the world famous Hammond's Candy Factory, and their motto says it best: "where sweet dreams come true!"
Established in 1920, Hammond's operates out of a massive 35,000-square-foot warehouse and is famous for not only their treats, but also for being one of the longest-operating candy stores in the state.
Just what makes Hammond's so dang sweet? Why, it is their scrumptious selection of chocolate...
...and, of course, their iconic lollipops and candy canes!
Don't live near Hammond's? Don't sweat it, as these epic treats can be found around the country!
As if the candy store wasn't reasoning enough to visit, this Colorado legend also offers the unique opportunity to tour the factory for FREE and witness how this delicious candy is made.
Since opening the factory to the public in 1999, Hammond's has welcomed thousands of visitors who not only get to watch how the candy is made, but...
...enjoy free samples of their candy in their "Oops" pile!
If a candy is cracked or broken, it is set aside and given to visitors! Talk about sweet!
Hammond's Candy Factory is located at 5735 Washington Street in Denver and is open Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
