I have been to better factory tours. Maybe it was just our tour guide. This was just a job for her and she was a poor guide and the chocolates were expensive I thought. The pop Corn was good and only a $1. a bag.

The tour was fun, the best part was buying chocolate at the end. It is a good way to spend an hour in South Bend.

As always the visit was very good and the young man who did the tour was exceptional. This group was a Navy Reunion Group and they loved the tour and of course the chocolate.
