My parents rolled into town, so we decided to hit the town with them. Hammond's Candies has been in the Denver area since 1920. They give free tours, so if you're in the area check it out.
All the candy is made by hand, and the same person who begins the batch sees the process all the way through. The temperature is kept pretty warm in this room. I think it's over 80 degrees.They have to keep it warm, so the candy doesn't harden before it's time.
Hammond's is known for it's ribbon candy. They even still use the original machine which is over 100 years old. Isn't it pretty?
It's filled with beautiful candies. It was just our luck that we visited during a big sale. The flavored candy canes were just $1.00 and many other candies were discounted too.
