We visited on a day that they weren’t making candy so we didn’t get a tour. A little disappointed but understood. Still purchased delicious candy.

If you want great candy and Kentucky made. They have bourbon balls and other old fashioned candies native to Kentucky. They are great for gifts and even shipping to family and friends. We love going on the tours also.

Great candies with a nice selection to choose from but the $5 per person for the tour was a little extreme for what you saw. When you start the tour they show a poor quality video that looks like someone recorded with their phone off...More

The chocolates are great but the tour is short. It's okay but don't expect too much. The good thing is, you are right there by the manufacturing line - is that sanitary? Oh well, don't overthink it - just buy the super yummy bourbon balls...More

We pulled off the interstate just for the candy tour. The tours are $5 each. There are signs most of the way to lead you right to it. The tours are about 30 minutes long and run from 1pm to 5:30pm. We got there right...More

Not a lot to see. You should take the tour although they charge for it. You really should try the candy, but it is expensive. A Kentucky experience.

It was not clear how to get a tour, but we did buy candy and we were not disappointed. These are not treats to be wolfed down, but savored one at a time. Our favorite was the Bourbon caramels.
