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 tour begins with a short movie giving the history of the company. It is cute and lighthearted and very family friendly. You then move onto a balcony overlooking the production area. We visited during the week so ice cream was being produced as the tour guide described the process. The tour concludes with a trip to the tasting room... More

We added this stop to our New England States road tour and were not disappointed! We love B & J Ice Cream and I personally had never been to an ice cream factory. We loved the story, the tour, the tasting and the ice cream flavor grave yard as well. it is a short tour and doesn't cost much. Worth... More

We went during March when snow on ground. Entered gift shop and looked around. Nothing special. We then went on factory tour that was OK. Saw some lids being put on ice cream cartons. Tour guide explained briefly each step as we gazed through windows and saw large stainless steel machines. Short movie that was ok. Sample of ice cream... More

If you are a Ben and Jerry or an ice cream fan it is worth the stop if in the area. I was in Burlington on business and drove out for something to do. I agree with the other reviews it is a little cheesy and it is all about selling their stuff but isn't every place that way. You... More

Lots of fun activities at the factory. Tour is interesting and ice cream is wonderful! Great location, just north of Waterbury Village, so a short drive after your tour!

If you love Ben & Jerry's ice cream you will build this experience up to be more in your head than the real experience. Cute little bus on the outside and the outdoor appearance adds to your anticipation. Surprisingly small inside--makes you wonder if you're in an actual ice cream factory. Friendly guide staff. The ridiculous (one hour or more)... More

This was a fun little stop on our way to Burlington. It wasn't crowded and we hopped right into a tour. The tour guide was very friendly and answered all of our questions. The tour is short, about 30 minutes, followed by a generous sample at the end. Only disappointment is it was a weekday visit so their test kitchen... More

The tour was about 25 minutes long and presented by a very animated guide. The tour concludes in the tasting room where you are treated to a little cup of ice cream. There is a nice gift shop and full service scoop counter where you can try other flavors too. My kids ages 5 and 11 were delighted!

Really fun stop. We got a tour of the factory and learned a lot of new things about one of our favorite ice cream brands. We got to sample some ice cream and watch a video on the history of the brand. After the tour we walked over to the flavor graveyard; it's a cute little "graveyard" complete with headstones... More
