Back in December 2000, the company’s creative confectioners at Hammond’s Candies cooked up something a little different for the season. Gathering friends and families of every kind, Hammond’s successfully held their 1st Annual Candy Cane Festival where entertainment, arts and crafts, and –as usual – their free factory tours were held.

One morning during my recent trip to Colorado, I was clicking through the cable stations available in my hotel room when I happened upon a mouthwatering show on the Travel Channel about the best food factories. The first segment that I watched was filmed at Hammond's Candy Factory in Denver. I soon realized that this local institution was located just less than 15 minutes from downtown where I was staying! Being the candy junkie that I am, I was psyched to find out from their website that Hammond's offers free factory tours all day long (except for Sundays when they are closed). An hour later I was in the car and on my way! Read more...
When everyone’s schmoozing about their “friend’s” latest status on Facebook or walking down the street while iTalking or Face Timing their bestie, we tend to take what is real and what is good for granted.
