James, Bryan and I took the tourwhen we were heading from Davis to San Francisco.
The tour is fun, a little too long however, but well worth the stop. It was amazing to see hundreds of cement mixers making the beans and billions at a time. Great candy store inside as well. We went in the Winter of 2008.
