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.

The Ben and Jerry's factory has a gift shop, ice cream parlor and a tour. The tour costs $4 and it starts with an interesting movie. Next you observe the factory from above while the tour guide explains the ice cream making process below, and then at the end there is a free sample. The sample and the purchased ice... More

Cool place tucked away in VT. I stopped here on a trip home from a weekend in the mountains. Typical Ben and Jerry's style with lots of stuff for the family to do. Plenty of outdoor seating in the shade to enjoy your ice cream. My one complaint was the ice cream stand needed more workers. It seemed like I... More

We were staying in nearby Stowe for a few days, so called in here for a visit on 1 of our many drives through the area. Ben and Jerry's is not so well known here in Australia - I was aware of the brand but my partner was not. The factory tour was interesting enough, and the free ice cream... More

The tour was okay. We were first shown a video, then taken to a spectator room above the factory floor. The guide was informative. Everything was very general in nature. The fee was nominal. The end-of-tour taste? We got what we paid for. It's done. Would not go again.

We visited Ben & Jerry's on a Friday in late October. Their famous ice cream was available at the store outside of their Vermont factory. We took the factory tour, but since the operation runs five days a week, the production line was being cleaned up for the weekend. We watched the history of their start and sampled one of... More

It was fun to take the tour and get our "special flavor of the day tasting" I think anyone would enjoy the experience.

I love Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia Ice Cream and it was a beautiful day to sit outside and eat ice cream. I have taken the tour many years ago and it is great. The gift shop is fun to go through too.

My wife and I went on the tour. Unfortunately it was on the weekend so we did not get to see the factory in action. they do have videos running that show you what the equipment looks like in motion, but definitely come during business hours for the full experience. After the tour your do get a free sample of... More

On our way home from New Hampshire to NYC, we took a 3 hour detour just to go to Ben & Jerry's to surprise my mother. She LOVES Ben & Jerry's, their corporate ethics besides the ice cream and was like a little kid when we pulled up. She could not wait to have fresh pistachio ice cream as that's... More

I thought the tour was fine. The guide was happy to entertain questions. You had a good view of the production floor along with the 10 minute movie that really captured the Ben& Jerry's story. And you received a small ice cream cone. The guides had their corny jokes but hey what else do want them to do? A vaudeville... More
