That Saturday, we had wanted to go on a hike but it was a bit cooler than we had hoped it would be so we headed to Hammond's Candies for a factory tour. Hammond's Candies has been in business in Denver since 1920 and to this day only has the one factory in town that supplies nationwide stores like Dean & Deluca, Whole Foods, and Nordstrom. Apparently Martha Stewart is also a big fan and has featured the candies on her shows and also places large personal orders. We learned all about the candy making process from soup to nuts and then we got to leave with candy cane samples! Of course I couldn't make it out of the building without a few extra items: Mitchell sweets, caramels, flat taffy, and peppermint cocoa stirrers. It was definitely an activity that both kids and adults could enjoy.
