A fun day outing, especially for those with children. The tour is relatively cheap (5 dollars for adults, 4 for seniors, and 3 for kids under 17) and a good deal for what you get. The only downside to the tour is that you don't...More

Both kids and grownups enjoy this tour, which shows you how Dum Dum lollipops are made, as well as candy canes and circus peanuts. The trolley ride through the factory is fun.

Having no idea that this factory was even in Ohio, we were pleasantly surprised to find that we could take what proved to be the delightful and very informative trolley tour.

I toured Spangler Candy Co. as a kid probably 30 years ago. The tour was pretty cool, you could see the machines folding and kneading the hot candy prior to it being stretched and molded into lollipops and candy canes. The smell was amazing, watching...More
