"We had such a great time and learned so much. We were fortunate to get Jessica for an instructor. She was not only very pleasant, she was extremely knowledgable. We are looking forward to attending more classes and events." - Tracy M.
Want a behind the scenes tour of Van Otis' candy factory? You can take a "behind closed doors" look at how we get all of those yummy things inside chocolate and try your hand at some of the candy making tasks. (And the nice part is if it doesn't turn out exactly right you can eat your mistakes.)
We can accommodate groups ranging from 10-25 people. Tours normally take an hour, but you will want to allow some time for browsing in our candy and gift store. Tours are appropriate for ages 8 and over.
Tours cost just $8.00 per person, which includes a fun candy making activity and of course, delicious samples!
