  • It is very interesting, but I would say it would not be for very young children
  • It’s actually amazing to see the amount of detail put into these jelly bean art pieces
  • It was a good experience, and we’ve been twice, but we probably will not go back until our youngest is a bit older and can enjoy the tour

      We have done this tour twice. It is a free walking tour of the factory that takes approximately 40 minutes. You get to see the entire process of how a jelly bean is created and packaged.

      It is very interesting, but I would say it would not be for very young children. Your child will probably be at least five-years-old before they really enjoy it.

      You start out in the lobby of the factory where you can go over to the little bakery and purchase cookies, fudge and other tasty treats before you


      start your walking tour. You then meet by the staircase where you are given paper Jelly Belly hats that you wear during your tour.

      You go upstairs and the tour starts (there is an elevator if you need it). You are able to see and smell the jelly beans, and the guide will show you, often with the help of short videos, how the jelly beans are made.

      You have a great view, you’re walking along a catwalk-type path above the factory, so you are able to look down and see everything spread ...


      • out before you. It was fascinating to see how much work goes into making a simple jelly bean.

        You would think it would be s short and fairly simple process, but as we learned, it is not. It takes much longer than you would expect.

        On the tour you also see very strange pieces of artwork made out of jelly beans. My children really liked this part and thought it was cool that they were able to actually do something with jelly beans besides eat them.

        It’s actually amazing to see the amount

        of detail put into these jelly bean art pieces. Fascinating!

        When the tour is over you end up in the gift shop downstairs.

        Here you can buy Jelly Belly hats, pencils, toys and so on. We left with a luggage tag and a stuffed Jelly Bean for our daughter.

        It was a good experience, and we’ve been twice, but we probably will not go back until our youngest is a bit older and can enjoy the tour. It was fun and informative and the bakery is an added bonus.

        Plus, for free, you cannot find a better tour!
