We specifically made a trip out here for this tour, and it was worth the drive. Located an hour north of San Francisco is the Jelly Belly Factory. Its very easy to locate (you can see it from the freeway). There's plenty of parking, a cafe to get a bite to eat, and plenty of candy to sample.
The place is a working factory, and employees are there during the week, but not on weekends. During the tour, you can watch the workers make the candy, and there's even samples give out during the tour.
Excellent place to visit, and best of all... its free!
