Description: For all the euphoric flavors you can't get enough of - especially the ones you can't get in ordinary stores - nobody scoops Ben & Jerry's better than we do at our scoop shops.

“Love the sample at the end of tour.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

We make this a ritual stop twice a year when we visit Vermont. After a couple of times the tour seems not worth the $4.00 admission but we enjoy the sample at the end. During fall foliage time, they actually had traffic control because of the crowds this place draws. All in all....if you love Ben and Jerry's ice cream, it's a must see.

“To Die For”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2013

Good history and tour round the plant area with a sample provided - with the added opportunity of trying before buying in the 'parlour'.
We particularly liked the 'flavour graveyard' up on the hill where numerous defunct flavours had a gravestone with witty inscription on each!
A really good visit for little cost - get there early to avoid queues.

“Icecream and pictures”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Fun way to spend maybe half an hour. The tour was only $4 each, and included a short video and talk, and a tasting.

The flavour graveyard was good - definitely liked the sound of the Vermonty Python flavour, with its homage to the dead parrot sketch!

“Really enjoyed this stop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

This was a stop on our fall foliage tour and we really enjoyed it. We loved the community support this company provides and their desire to make a better product while treating their suppliers well. We will be buying Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream from now on!
The tour was fun and lively with a generous scoop of ice cream at the end. Don't miss the flavor graveyard. It's worth the walk up the hill just to read the clever descriptions! There's a playground for the children also.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

This was our first visit to Ben & Jerry's. The entrance was very crowded and a large tour coming out and milling about in front of the ticket area made it confusing for everyone who was coming in to find the line for tickets. I think the tickets should be half of what was charged as the tour was a video and then a short tour looking through windows but I did enjoy hearing and seeing the whimsical drawings along the way. The taste at the close of the tour was also very nice.
