First of all when you get there they make you check everything (purse, camera, cell phone, jewelry) and then everyone has to put on candy maker hats (hair nets). The candy maker hats were a bit of a challenge for the little ones.
On the tour they actually take you through the factory. There were these "smaller" 2000 lb bags of sugar that they pour into these giant sugar silos that look like giant pastry bags. That sugar is then blown around the factory through tubes. Crazy!
Then we got to look around at how it was all packaged.
I thought these machines were pretty cool.
Oh and did I mention they gave us samples all along the way? Uhhh I ate WAY to much candy today. You know who else ate way to much candy today.
Not only did we get a lot of candy at the factory, but we also brought home way to much candy. Please note the little boy licking his lips in the right hand corner of this picture. Yeah that is totally not staged. I couldn't help but laugh a little when I loaded this picture onto my computer and saw Logan doing that in the background. He is totally eying those Grapefruit sour balls. Mmmmm Grapefruit sour balls.
