Short stop and fascinating process. This is the best candy in the world for me. The historic tour clues you into the hand-made process. Kentucky is so beautiful and Ruth Hunt Candies is centrally located. Don't mis it!

I always thought the world of this place. So much, that I made the mistake of trusting them to get a package shipped out to a dear friend. I was skeptical of their Authorized Mailing center status, but I decided that I would take a...More

Our tour was offered when no candy was being made. They were washing dishes. I wish they would have let us know BEFORE we paid! There was a white board (in the kitchen area) that said 'no candy production on Friday, Maintenance only. Our tour...More
