Chocolate! One of the basic food groups, right?
Wander the aisles of this huge factory outlet store, and pick up a sample or two, or three, or â€¦ now, donâ€™t get carried away! Youâ€™ll see that the store employees have thoughtfully opened sample boxes of various candies throughout the store. Please donâ€™t â€œhelpâ€ them out by opening additional boxes to sample!
Russell Stover is a major employer in the Montrose area, with a production facility located in the building behind the outlet store. Sadly, no tours of the candy-making process are available.
Warning: the taste and aroma of chocolate may prove too much for you, and youâ€™ll likely end up making a purchase before your friends manage to drag you out of the store. Ask for the free gift wrapping, and pretend you arenâ€™t going to eat it all yourself.
Update: Check out the lovely, brand new building (as of late 2012) that replaces the former one on the same property. The front area features special chocolates by the piece as well as a multitude of boxed chocolates and other treats. The back room has lots of specials on seasonal-themed items and â€œnot-quite-perfectâ€ candies that taste great but arenâ€™t quite pretty enough to make it into the fancy boxes.
