The aromas of cinnamon, chocolate, peach and many other delicious flavors will tempt your taste buds along the way.
After your tour has ended, don’t miss the tasting bar, where you get to sample various flavors of jelly beans. There is also a souvenir shop and of course a snack bar with drinks and food if you choose to eat while you are there.
The Anheuser-Busch brewery is another unique tour which will let you witness the beer making process and sample some fresh brews and munch on pretzels.
