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.

Very much enjoyed the factory tour while on vacation. The sample ice cream was outstanding. Souvenir prices were very reasonable. Must see place.

Near the parking lot you pass through the flavors graveyard - this is was nice and cute and definitely made us looking forward to the tour. but the tour itself - very poor, like in old times... a short movie tell the story of the founders, and then you get to see the small factory and the guide explained about...

This was our second visit and tour, the first time we came they weren't making ice cream and the kids were disappointed. This time they were and the tour was more interesting and fun for them. The tour is inexpensive and fairly quick (15-20 mins) and you get a sample at the end. We we're celebrating a birthday, so we... More

Don't waste your time doing the tour. It's not worth it, and the taste at the end isn't much. Prices at the outdoor counter are sky high - no deals to be had here. The property is interesting, though, and parking is free.

We stopped at the Ben & Jerry's factory on the way to Stowe on a Saturday afternoon. We took the factory tour which was interesting even though they weren't making ice cream that day. At the end of the tour we got a free sample of ice cream. We would have gotten a dish of ice cream at the store... More

Our tour guide, Jonathan, may do several tours in a day, but he made us feel as if our tour was his first one! He was so entertaining throughout the entire tour. He was funny, friendly, expertly answered our questions, and his jokes didn't seem canned. The tour is inexpensive, brief but thorough, and you can wait for your tour... More

The tour is very reasonably priced ($4 for adults, kids are free). Unfortunately the cookie dough ice cream had gummed up the works so the machines were not running. The video about the Ben and Jerry's story was cute. There is free ice cream at the end of the tour! The guide was fun and answered a lot of questions... More

The Ben and Jerry's Ice cream factory is a fun way to pass a couple of hours if you are in the area. They have tours running all day so you'll always be able to get on one. Its not a massive tour but the even so its very reasonable at just $4 each. First you get shown a film... More

Our group was on vacation in the area and made the trek out to visit the creamery. We knew it being a Sunday that we wouldn't be able to witness ice cream being made (bummer, but glad it was noted on the website!) so we decided to skip the tour. We got some ice cream outside, although I was hoping... More

Although the tour is very short it was enjoyable and very cheap. If you buy the tour/t-shirt package, check which t-shirt you want first as there isn't a lot of choice for women compared to the men. Also sizes don't go very big in the ladies. I got the biggest size there is and still can't fit into it.
