Where are we going today?

There is a very special place in California, where family tours include....yes....Jelly Belly's! Amazing!

Jelly Belly Candy Tour in Fairfield is where kids can actually see how Jelly Belly's are made...and even enjoy some free samples! Yum!

As soon as you walk in, you will be able to smell the aroma of cinnamon, and apricot, and chocolate, or even pineapple! Whatever is being cooked up that day will be in the air...and you get to experience it first!

Only about an hour's drive north of San Francisco, you can enjoy a 40 minute walking tour which is as much informative as it is fun. A real Jelly Belly guide (what a cool job!) will take you around the REAL working factory, where over 150 different flavors are created.

You can hear all of the secrets that it takes to create those legendary candies, and see why it takes over a WEEK to make a single bean - how crazy!

It's not just the Jelly Belly's that you will see being created, either. You can see taffy, chocolates, and even wild gummi critters in the making too!

Don't miss the great videos that are on display too, that give you an up close and personal look into the manufacturing, as well as the interactive exhibits.

And yes kids - there are FREE samples!

It's a jelly belly kind of fun in your family day out at the Jelly Belly Candy Tour - so what is your stomach waiting for!

    Go during the week! Went on a Sunday and we were only able to watch videos of what they do at each stop. Still fun though and I highly recommend it! No photo or video is allowed on the tour, but is allowed before and after.

    Great place to visit! The tour is free plus you get free samples and free bag of Jelly Bellies at the end. If you're thinking to buy stuff (and there's plenty to want to get!), be sure to check out the case shop by the cafeteria in addition to the main store - crazy discounts! Also, in the main store, you can try every possible flavor and some super yummy fudge too! The whole thing is wonderful with kids or without! Highly recommend!!

    FREE Jelly beans! FREE tour!! Free is good. I'm a fan. :)

    Tours happen about every 15 minutes and the tour lasted about 45 minutes. The tour was a cool experience - things typically aren't running during the weekends, so if you want to see the factory in action I recommend coming during the week.

    I liked learning about Jelly Belly, but I wish that the tour relied less on video monitors and more on someone just talking us through the factory. It definitely works from a scalability perspective so it makes tours efficient, but it was a little...Read More

    This is a fantastic tour. It's free. Less than free, actually, as they give you a bag of jelly beans on the way out. What you get for your less than free admission price is a really fun tour of the Jelly Belly factory.

    The worst part of the tour is they way it starts with them taking a picture of your and your companions in front of a green screen that they later populate with images of jelly beans. At the end of the tour you can purchase this for an absurdly high price or not bother. They don't put any pressure on you, which is nice.

However, that aside, I highly recommend that you visit!!

Then you get into the elevated walkway around the factory. This is where the really cool part starts. They show you the packaging and shipping lines, and if you like watching bag-filling machines and conveyor belts and Fanuc robots lifting boxes and trays of jelly bean trays -- and I do! -- this is totally fascinating. As you walk around they show you other parts of the process, e.g. where the raw materials are stored, how the candy centers are made, how the outer layers are added, how the Jelly Belly logo is printed on, how they weed out the beans that are too large or small.

There is also a video segment on Ronald Reagan's love of Jelly Bellies. And, there is an art gallery full of Jelly Belly mosaics. Reagan fans will love this part of the tour.

Along the way they give you a small number of beans to sample. And, our tour guide was legitimately funny.

At the end of the tour they dump you in a huge store full of their products. The deformed beans -- Belly Flops -- are sold at great prices. The other prices approximate what you'd pay in a Safeway.

This is a kid friendly tour that adults will like as well. If you can, be sure to go on a weekday so you can see the plant in operation.
