Candy Factory Tours    (if you were looking for candy jobs click here)

Some candy manufacturers will allow you to tour their factory!  You better go soon though because less and less of them are providing tours every day because of secrecy and security.
The factory list is sorted by state with links to google maps.  Be sure to call ahead because they are not open all the time or they may working on a special job.  Many tours are not open right before certain holidays because they are so busy making more candy!  We have also included some virtual factory tours as well.
