Surely you have you heard of “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”
Well we have our own Reno Tahoe Willy Wonka named Joe Dutra, and he & his staff give FREE factory tours here in Reno Tahoe USA!
They can handle groups as small as 2 and as large as 30. Tours take anywhere from 30 to 80 minutes, depending on how much goodie tasting you take part in. Tours are available anytime from 10 AM to 2 PM, Monday through Friday.
When you walk in you are greeted by whimsical art done by Joe’s daughter Kat, and feature Kimmie Candy’s mascot KC in various forms. You are treated to as many candy samples as you can handle and seated in the viewing room. There you can check out the history of Kimmie Candy and the processes to make the 10lb chocolate bar all the way to the candy coated chocolate candy.
Then they put on a movie which shows the history of chocolate incorporated with the full process of how Kimmie Candy is made from start to finish. Who knew a delicious ChocoRock takes amost 56 hours to complete!
To sign up for your FREE factory tour please call 775-284-9200 and say you would like to schedule a tour or email them at [email protected], they will get you set up from there. The factory is also a peanut free and gluten free facility!
