Very disappointed. The tour took us 3x around the warehouse. Mostly saw stacks of empty boxes and wood pallets. Staff was really friendly.

Easy access; manufacturing facility for Dum-Dums (what we called lollipops back east); smells great if you like candy. Company is very community oriented. Could make lots more money moving facility to Canada or Mexico due to USA sugar premium (thanks Florida sugar barons/ farm lobby).
