Kids - your parents have probably told you not to spoil your dinner by eating candy, but if you're part of an educational tour, surely you can try it then!
Sanders Candy Factory Tours will take you on a delicious journey behind the scenes and you watch their expert candy makers create their masterpieces!
Parents, want to hear something fun first up? The tours are FREE - so why wouldn't you want to head on down there! The tours are perfect for all ages, and if you're in a group, it can be customized to how you want it.
(The tours are also handicap accessible, so everyone can have a go!)
The tour begins with a video presentation that will take you through the fascinating history of chocolate and candy. If you have ever wondered how it's made, then it's here you will find out! You will also get to re-live the story of the Sanders and Morely Candy Makers, and how they got their start in Detroit.
Then, you head on down to Observation Hallway where you get to see the candy makers in action! Maybe you might be able to recognize some of the candy they are making. Maybe it might be the Pecan Torties, and maybe it might be the Sea Salt Caramels! The Observation Hallway is 100 feet, so there is a lot of chocolate making to take in!
Then it's the bit you are all waiting for - the FREE chocolate samples! You get to try your tasty treat as you keep watching how it's made!
Of course, your experience at the Sanders Candy Factory Tour ends with the fun gift shop to pick what tasty candy you want to be taking home with you.
What a delicious family day out for everyone!
