Hammond's Candies Factory Tour in Denver, CO

Monday, July 04, 2011 | Comments: (0)

Ever wonder how candy canes or other hard candies get their stripes? At Hammond’s, you’ll see how hard candy has been made by hand since the 1920s. First, step into the packing room, where workers pack lollipops or candy canes. Next, through a wall of windows in the kitchen, you’ll see large copper kettles. Inside, 50 pounds of sugar, water, and corn syrup heats to over 300°F. Two men lift and carry a huge kettle and pour the bubbling, amber-colored liquid onto a metal table. Next you may see the candy maker adding different colors to areas of this sheet of candy: for a candy cane, he scoops out some red paste with a spatula and mixes it into one section, then adds green in another corner. Another section remains clear. Finally, the “scrap”—the crushed beginnings and ends of other candy—is melted into another section: this will become the candy canes’ center. Read more...
