Kegg's Handmade Candies Factory Tour

When I think candy factory I think Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. My sister and I use to wish for an opportunity to leap into the movie screen and taste the delicious goodness. (With permission from Mr. Wonka of course: we wouldn't want to turn out like Violet or be escorted away by an army Oompa-Loompas.) I recently discovered that you can bring a little of the movie magic to life by taking a tour of Houston's own chocolate Factory at Kegg's Handmade Candies!

The Kegg’s Candies Chocolate Factory is a customer friendly production facility. It was built with a factory tour entrance and a 90 foot long glass wall exposing a clear view of the entire chocolate making process.  The tour ends in Kegg’s 2,000 sq. ft. colorful chocolate factory retail store where you’ll find over 600 handmade candies, frozen custard and Italian ice.  Free samples of signature confections can be had with ease.

You will learn about the cocoa processing, the chocolate and confectionery manufacturing process as well as the history and tradition of Kegg’s Candies.  You will see, touch and feel an actual cocoa pod and learn how the cocoa plant, the cocoa pod and the cocoa bean play an important role in producing the chocolate candies we all love to consume.

Group tours that are scheduled in advance are met by a Kegg’s Factory Tour representative that will guide you through the facility and provide information and answer questions. For groups smaller than 10 people or individuals, tours are self guided at the customers own schedule and pace. So just stop by any time during tour hours when it’s convenient for you.

Don’t forget to bring a few dollars to buy some souvenirs as a memory of your visit. Stop by and experience what life at the chocolate factory is really like. They guarantee you’ll have a really “sweet” experience!
