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.

8 of us were having a break in Vermont and could not leave without paying homage to the purveyors of so many lovely desserts, nights in front of movies and pints of happiness when comfort is required! Let me start by saying we had to leave for the factory in the early afternoon as the kids would not miss their... More

First you watch a little video about ben and Jerry's history and then you take the tour.There's really not much to see on this tour-just a big room with a conveyor belt. You view it from above and you really can't tell what anybody is doing and the whole thing takes about 10 minutes but then you go to the... More

This was a fun experience! Nice summary movie at the beginning of the tour. We went on a day there wasn't any production going on but the woman showing us around did an excellent job explaining it to us. The sample at the end was a decent size too! An amount to fill a little condiment cup. The flavor graveyard... More

If you like ice cream, and who doesn't β€” then you will enjoy the factory tour at Ben & Jerry's in Waterbury. It's a quick tour and you do get a scoop of ice cream at the end of it. You can also buy more, of course, if you still have a craving. No picture taking while on the tour.... More

I do and I really enjoyed the tour. Got to see the operation and see how ice cream is made and packaged. Learned a little Ben & Jerry's history as well. Finally, we enjoyed a nice sample - the flavor du jour was Strawberry Cheesecake! Bring the kids. They'll love it.

Despite the advice on earlier reviews we visited on a day they were cleaning between flavours - so we watched the factory being scrubbed down - a bit boring but reassuring !. Good little gift shop and a decent sample at the end - not bad value. Allow an hour only.

We had the best tour guide Clifton he even sang for us! Great tour and ice cream at the end! Worth the stop and seeing (we actually stopped twice)!
