Day 657: Hammonds Candy Factory Tour

Shabbos and Shavuos at the O family’s house here in Denver was wonderful.  M and I learned until the wee hours of the morning.

Today we visited the Hammonds Candy Factory in Denver:

Hammonds produces high-end hand crafted candies.  The candy is still manufactured by hand in what seemed to me to be a surprisingly small facility:

And the end of the tour, we received a complimentary lollypop and exited through their on-site retail facility:

We added our tour stickers to the sign outside:

On the way home, we stopped at what must be the largest skate park in Denver.  The kids were initially too shy to test their skills, but towards the end of our visit M did try a few runs on his scooter:

At home, we decided to make our own taffy using the same techniques we saw at the factory:

The kids had to coat their hands with butter to avoid sticking to the taffy.  I think M is saying “this is gross!”:

Tonight, Trish started working on larger Junior Ranger wall hangings for the kids, as they’ve completely filled their existing wall hangings with their patches and badges:
