This was a busy place today. I had toured the facility last year with my wife. The tour is actually good. Today I was there to purchase some candy while in the area. A small bag of malt balls and 2 bourbon balls and 2 mint chocolates with liquor was almost $10. That’s a little pricey considering that the mint chocolates were not good at all. The bourbon balls were better and the malt balls were OK but not outstanding. Frankly, I have had better for less at other specialty candy shops. That’s disappointing considering I enjoy smaller local businesses especially in our state. On the plus side it’s close to the state capital if you are visiting.

We stopped by the Museum to try their product and purchase a few gifts. Did not have time to take the tour, but as we were leaving and other customer was recommending it!
This company makes custom candy sold in many of the distillery gift shops, using their bourbons. We were surprised and thrilled to see that you would purchase that variety of chocolates at this location. On top of that, the staff was fun, friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful!
What I can say about the candy here: This is hands down the best bourbon ball you will ever eat. Seriously. ALL of their candy puts others to shame, but seriously, the bourbon balls are insanely delicious. There are several retail locations in the area, so don’t miss the opportunity to try this candy. I’d recommend stopping at the Museum, though, because it was just so welcoming.

I stopped by on a short jaunt to Frankfort to check it out. Though they are not doing their normal tours right now, the guy behind the counter was happy to tell me about how their company came about and give me a sample of their bourbon balls! I do not drink alcohol normally so I was curious if I'd like that flavor. The chocolate blended very, very well with the bourbon flavor and I definitely enjoyed it!
I got a raspberry jelly, peanut butter cream, and dark chocolate caramel to try. Delicious!

You can do the tour in this tiny home factory, or just get a sample of the famous bourbon balls and buy a box or two as souvenirs. They must be kept at our below 70 degrees so be aware in case you are traveling without a cooler. Pick up company history brochure to learn more about the two remarkable women who started this business. Plenty of free parking on the street, and there is an angel wing mural outside so you can pose with your goodies!

We got there 10 minutes past the last tour time. We were offered a bourbon ball chocolate but that was it. We had Muth’s candy in Louisville and it tasted better. One girl tried to be at least friendly offered us the candy and explained about the first candy Ruth made. The other clerk just seemed irritated. All the way from PA to be disappointed. A 45 minute trolley tour was available but we had other stops to experience and didn’t have the time.
We came from the Blue grass scenic railroad and Ricardo’s both were very good.

A co-worker had told me about this candy store. I did look to see when tours were available but due to meetings at KSU was unable to participate. Even though there are 3 locations inFrankfort I wanted to go to the original store. I wanted to buy the boo-boo's but unfortunately they had has several tours and were sold out, but was told they had them at the other locations so I hurried to another location before closing. both stores were very friendly and was willing to answer questions. was glad I visited and may drive out of my way to buy more next time I'm in the area

Our group enjoyed the tour of the candy company, and also the variety of candy available for purchase. It's amazing how they produce such a large quantity of candy in such a small kitchen. Everything is well organized.

My sister and I visited Rebecca Ruth Candy Store and loved it! We did the tour which was super easy. We were able to walk and get on the tour. We saw the factory and watched a video on the history. We learned a lot and it was neat to see the candy making process. We couldn't believe how much candy they make in a small factory! To top it all of - we got to try to legendary bourbon balls which we both highly recommend.

What a great hidden treasure. Home of the Bourbon ball which is a bit of Kentucky Derby history. The ability to take a free tour is a bonus on this great candy maker. Very friendly staff as well make you feel at home.

Unfortunately, we arrived 15 minutes before closing. We shopped quickly and were given a free bourbon ball. Next time, I'd do the tour, although right now it's only a video due to Covid.
