A popular Glendale attraction is the Cerreta Candy Company. The owners delight in giving 30-minute tours Monday through Thursday, during which visitors receive samples.

The Cerreta's strive to create a fun, lively atmosphere where everyone can see candy magic being made. Take a special guided tour of our family owned hometown candy factory. We'll show you how a sea of caramel becomes wrapped tempting taste treats. Learn how cream centers are enrobed in luscious chocolate.

Just before Valentine's Day, Cerreta sponsors the annual three-day Chocolate Affaire, where the delectable, sweet stuff is on display in many forms, including Arizona's largest chocolate heart, ranging upward of 300 pounds.

30-minute guided tours are offered Monday through Thursday at 10am and 1pm. For groups of 30 or more, please call and arrange for a private tour.
