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

  1. AAAAH!!! My mouth is watering. LOL

  2. Tony managed to convince the woman giving out samples that he needed another one. :-D
    More chocolate today - we stopped at the Hersey store on the strip to see a 11-foot, 800-lb. chocolate Statue of Liberty!

  3. We had a great time there 15 years ago with the kids. In the shop, they wouldn't let us buy a chocolate variety without trying a free sample, LOL! I personally loved the cactus garden and artificial wetland as well.

    1. Aha, so now we know to ask for samples of everything! :-D

  4. This factory is in Henderson? I'll make sure to stop there next time we blow thru town! Thanx for sharing.

    1. It's a nice little stop especially if you like chocolate!
