The Hammond's Candy Factory started conducting business in 1920. What started out as a small business venture is still around today making candy with careful craftsmanship and delicious recipes. At Hammond's visitors may tour the factory and see toffee being hand-dipped in chocolate and rolled in nuts and hard candy being pulled to gain that extra shine. Hammond's is located at 5735 North Washington Street in Denver directly across from the Denver Merchandise Mart on 58th Avenue in between Washington Street and Interstate 25.
The factory is open for tours Monday through Friday from 9 am to 3 pm, Saturdays from 10 am to 3 pm, and closed on Sundays. Tours run every thirty minutes. There is no age limit for the factory tours at Hammond's and children are welcome with the supervision of an adult. Factory tours are free of charge and no reservation is required for groups under 10 people.
Some of the candy created at the factory includes a wide assortment of lollipops, ribbon candy, marshmallow and caramel, all natural candy, chocolate, candy canes, and much more. Holiday gift guides are available for visitors to mull over and the smell of sweet sensations upon arrival keeps guests coming back for more.
