Very disappointed. The tour took us 3x around the warehouse. Mostly saw stacks of empty boxes and wood pallets. Staff was really friendly.

Don't confuse the "factory tour" with a factory tour - this is a warehouse and packaging area tour in a trolley/ electric train. Most of what you get to see of the manufacturing is shown through video presentations on the trolley as you are driven...More

Easy access; manufacturing facility for Dum-Dums (what we called lollipops back east); smells great if you like candy. Company is very community oriented. Could make lots more money moving facility to Canada or Mexico due to USA sugar premium (thanks Florida sugar barons/ farm lobby).
