Where are we going today?

Where you do want to go for your family day out? A candy factory...um....YES!

Well, just as well the Rebecca Ruth Candy Factory offers tours for the whole factory, where you can experience a real working candy factory right in the heart of Frankfort, Kentucky.

Did you know that Rebecca Ruth's Candy Factory is the home of the world famous Bourbon Chocolates? In fact, they are know as the "Inventor of Bourbon Candy"!

The tours are conducted in a real factory with actual candy manufacturing going on, so be mindful when you arrive you are essentially guests in the factory workers home. They have very important jobs to do, otherwise there would be no candy for families just like you!

The tours will give you an amazing insight into how candy is actually produced, and how it gets to the stores so you can enjoy it (after all, imagine Halloween if they didn't work out how to make it!)

Kids will get a kick out of hearing the stories, and be able to ask any questions along the way.

The history of Ruth is fascinating too!

Did you know that it was all the way back in 1919 that two teachers called Rebecca and Ruth (who knew!?) decided that they in fact weren't very good teachers, but loved giving chocolates as presents.

Loving this idea, they went into business and co-founded a candy enterprise!

See, it's not just amazing facts about candy you'll learn on the Rebecca Ruth Candy Tour...there is history to boot!

Now...all we have to think about now is how much we can carry away with us at the end of the tour when we hit the gift shop!

    Stopped by the retail store today for the first time in eons. Rebecca Ruth was the "expensive" and coveted candy of my childhood. No more! It's still quite expensive...a lb is between $23 and $30+. The chocolate creams (of various flavors) were flat and gritty, not creamy smooth as once upon a time. The salt water taffy was straight from WalMart...I know that's so because I have bought several bags of WM taffy and recognized every color and flavor without exception. Steer clear of everything but pure RR candies and chocolates...and only then...Read More

The salt water taffy was straight from WalMart...I know that's so because I have bought several bags of WM taffy and recognized every color and flavor without exception. Steer clear of everything but pure RR candies and chocolates...and only then if you want to sort of experience what was once the best. The caramel-covered marshmallows were still very, very good...and the creamed candy was also very nice. I did not spring for a full lb. I settled for 1/2 lb of chocolates and a few caramels plus a very small bag of the taffy to confirm my suspicions. The gentleman waiting on me was lovely...the candy looked delicious...but much of it has really gone done in quality. Some of their uber-expensive specialty candies such as bourbon candy might still be good. But if you're just wanting creams, chocolate toffee, etc., this isn't the place anymore...and that makes me very sad. :(
