In 1988, this marshmallow factory was destroyed when a factory next door blew up. They were cleaning up marshmallow in Henderson for weeks afterward. What a mess. Happily, the marshmallow factory is open for business again, including self-guided tours of the plant and production line. It's a good idea to check with the plant ahead of time so you know when the machinery will actually be running. When it is, you can see how they cook the marshmallow mixture and then blow air into it to create the fluffy treats we know and love. The best thing about this tour? It's free, and they even offer a discount bag of mini-marshmallows at the end of the tour! The Favorite Brands Marshmallow Factory is located at 1180 Marshmallow Lane in Henderson. Call 702-393-7308 for more information.
