SOUTHFIELD — Join ESD TOMORROW for an exclusive, members-only tour of the place where Sanders chocolate and desserts are created. This tour will give ESD members an up-close look at the science and technology behind the unique form of cooking known as candy making. Even the simplest sugary treat is the product of complex chemistry.
The tour of Sanders & Morley Candy Makers Inc. begins at 1 p.m. with registration and networking. The tour runs from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. The Sanders-Morley candy factory is at 23770 Hall Road in Clinton Township.
The tour will begin with a video journey exploring the story of chocolate, how chocolate is made and how Sanders and Morley Candy Makers got their start in Detroit. You’ll hear from a Morley Candy executive who will give expert information on the engineering and science of candy making.
Visitors will also enjoy a free candy sample as they watch candy makers create luscious treats as they make their way down the 100 foot observation walkway overlooking the production area.
A stop in the unique candy and gift shop puts the finishing touch on the tour.
