Tour The Official Jelly Belly Factory In Northern California For A Super Sweet Family Outing
Northern California is just filled with unique tours that are waiting to be taken advantage of, but there’s one that’s especially delightfully and worth checking out. The official Jelly Belly Factory is located just a half hour’s drive from Napa, and it’s open for tours daily. On this super sweet tour, visitors can witness the behind-the-scenes process of creating America’s favorite jelly bean. Not only is the tour absolutely fascinating, but you’ll also have the opportunity to indulge in all of the jelly beans you could possibly eat! Check out this sweet adventure and plan a family outing to the Jelly Belly Factory pronto.
Hiding out near Fairfield is the one and only Jelly Belly Visitor Center. This place has proved to be a delightful attraction for all ages—both the young and young at heart—and touring it is a must for anybody with a sweet tooth.
Tours are given daily and visitors will have the choice between a free self-guided tour of the factory and a personal guided tour. The self-guided tour is a great option for those who'd like to move at their own pace, and it gives you an up-close-and-personal look at Jelly Belly's manufacturing process.
During the tour, visitors will embark on the 1/4-mile-long tour lane which boasts a bird's eye view of the entire factory. See for yourself how Jelly Belly's jellybeans are made, and participate in all of the interactive exhibits and games along the way.
If you'd like an even deeper look into the candy-making process, the personal guided tour may be the experience for you. Departing at 10:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m., and 2:30 p.m. every day, it allows visitors a more informative look at how Jelly Belly's are made.
This tour lasts approximately 40-45 minutes and reservations are required. Unlike the free self-guided tour, the guided tour does have an admission price of $39 per tour (good for 1 to 6 people.)
Of course, looking at all those jellybeans is bound to trigger a candy craving. Don't fret! Free samples are given during the tour and you'll have plenty of opportunities to eat as many jellybeans as humanly possible.
If your stomach is craving something more than sweets, then you'll want to be sure to stop by the Jelly Belly Cafe. Here you can order up some
real to enjoy after your tour—jellybean-shaped of course!
Don't forget to stop by the Jelly Belly Candy Store to complete your factory experience. Pick up a few bags of jellybeans to take home with you, including their famous "Belly Flops", for the perfect end to this unforgettable experience.
