    In about an hour tour groups can experience candy making from start to finish in our 152,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art candy factory. Opened in May 1995, it is conveniently located off I-270 at 1777 Arlingate Lane in Columbus, Ohio.

Walk Along our comfortable, glass-enclosed suspended "Cat-Walk" and observe nine lines producing 30,000 pounds of chocolates per shift. Our experienced tour guides explain each process step-by-step from our kitchens to the final packaging. View interesting sights such as our huge copper kettles where the centers of some of the candies are created and our unique silver-wrapped pipes that carry liquid chocolate throughout the factory. The tour finishes in our beautiful 2,500 square-foot retail shoppe.
