Sweets Tour

September 14, 2019 @ 11:00 am

Back by popular demand! Join us for our tasting tour of Tacoma’s candy industry.

Tacoma has a rich and tasty history as a major destination for the manufacturing of delicious treats. We are the birthplace of Almond Roca, Mountain Bars, half of Baskin Robbins, the first Mars Bar, Johnson’s Candy Co, some of the nation’s best donuts, and more! The naturally cool and stable climate has allowed Tacoma to become a major player in the sweets industry.

On this tour you will get to hear, see, and TASTE the sweet history of Tacoma. Included in your tour will be four different tasting stops that will allow you to experience the delicious past and innovative present of our port town first hand.

This tour utilizes the FREE Link Light rail and consists of light walking (less than a mile.)

Please book your tickets online. Children 3-12 are only $9 (served a smaller portion) and children under 3 are FREE!
