Ethel M Chocolate Factory
Forrest E. Mars retired from the family chocolate candy business in 1973 and moved to Nevada. He found retirement boring and built this factory which uses his mother’s recipes to create freshly made, small-batch premium chocolates. They’re very good and very expensive!
The factory is small so the tour consists of a short walk along a corridor overlooking the factory floor with video programs to explain the process. Try to visit on a weekday when production is occurring. And of course the corridor leads directly to the gift shop and a free sample. There’s also a nicely landscaped cactus garden to stroll through.
Everything is accessible.
The parking lot is large enough for RVs. Factory
