Truth be told, the only reason to partake on the free Huy Fong Foods tour is to visit the only factory that produces their 3 products. Actually, I only thought they only had 2 products and only learned of sambal oelek (chili paste without garlic) at our visit. Although the factory plant is massive, the operation still has a family business feel to it. Viewing the wild selection of Sriracha themed T shirts in the gift shop is worth the trip.

Our family, which included a 5 year old and 14 month old, had a wonderful time visiting Huy Fong where the rooster sriracha is made. There is a video at the beginning which is fun and allows for people who are a little late to still participate in the tour (that was us). The security, even in the parking lot, is on point so don't show up unless you have a pre-booked pass. There were lots of photo ops and they openly welcomed videos and cameras. The tour guides were friendly and informative, and the tour itself was very cool, and its incredibly clean inside. The kids really enjoyed all of the moving parts, especially the robotic arms that packed the pallets. It's definitely a must-see especially if you love sriracha as much as we do. The little gift store is fun too - lots of great souvenirs to pick up. We asked them to get some magnets though! Final reminder: though the tour is free you still need to go to their website to book a time slot for a tour in advance.

We really enjoyed this tour. Plan about 2 hours or slightly less. The facility is really impressive - huge, clean and high-tech. The video introduction was interesting and the tour takes you all throughout the factory. This tour is way more comprehensive than the Tabasco factory in Louisiana. The gift shop prices are reasonable, too. We highly recommend this tour.

We loved it. Highly recommend. Amazing story behind the company and so much fun. Very informative and generous samples at the end. Smells are fantastic.

We love these products and were happy with the free gifts at the end of the tour. BUT this experience was not really worth the trip. First, there is no signage for parking or where one goes to sign in for the tour once you're parked. We watched a video for 20 minutes or so until it was abruptly ended by the tour guide and we went into the plant. In the plant, most on the tour could not hear what the guide was saying (loud plant and soft spoken guide). Nice factory. Nice story. Not so nice tour.
