During the 40-minute walking tour, Jelly Belly tour guides will show you a real working factory where we cook up

Jelly Belly factory tours are especially popular and referred to by many as a "unique and sweet experience". Reservations are not required.
Tours are FREE and depart approximately every 10-15 minutes throughout the day and last approximately 40 minutes. While the typical wait for tours is approximately 15 minutes, tour waits can be as long as 1 hour or more during certain holidays, the Easter season, Spring Break, summer (mid-June to end of August), Veteran’s Day, the Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving, the week before Christmas, and the week before New Year’s.
Please plan to bring strollers or wheelchairs as
all areas of the Visitor Center and factory tour are fully ADA accessible. Note that strollers and wheelchairs are not available in the Visitor Center.
Jelly Belly is a working factory. While we strive to keep all manufacturing areas operating at full capacity Monday through Friday, there may be times some or all areas of the factory will not be operating or operating at full production. This includes annual inventory check and maintenance periods. Production schedules are subject to change without notice.
Jelly Belly has teamed up with Sharpshooter Imagingtm
to offer souvenir photos. Pictures of your tour group are taken just before your tour and are available for purchase when you return from your tour!
On weekends and certain holidays, we still conduct our full 40-minute guided factory tours, but since our candy makers are
at home with their families, we give our candy making machines a rest. Video monitors show the different steps of
our famous candy making process as you walk through the route.
