We stopped by on our way home from Chicago and we surprised our kids. They loved it!! They thought it was cool to watch the candy being made in the factory. The prices are reasonable and the candy is very good quality.

Loved the smells, enjoyed the big chocolate fountain! Loved looking around at everything! The tour lacked a little. Wish more windows would have been opened and more candy would have been being made at the time. Otherwise, a great time! Great flavor of candy!

Self guided tour is lame. The windows into the factory are closed except one. Which you only saw robot arms packing boxes. On the tour all you do is push a button. That turns on a tv over head. That shows you an old video....More
