“Fun side trip - depending on how far you drive for it”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

if you have seen other food processing/manufactoring facilities before its nothing to exciting, but it is a nice stop if you are already close by or using 290 to get to/from Houston etc .... admission price is reasonable and includes a scoop of ice cream at the end ... tour guy was very enthusiastic

“Tour could have been slightly better.”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We made it here just in time for the 10 AM tour. The ticket people were very nice and they have lots of exhibits to look through when waiting for the tour to start. The lady who did our tour seemed very nice and knowledgeable about the company, but my husband who has engineering background wished there was more info on the machines themselves. You get a free scoop of ice cream at the end. You can purchase extra scoops for $1, but they really are HUGE scoops.

“Great value for money but go early!”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

A great place to spend an hour or two. The tour is fun and lasts around 35-40 minutes with the onus of ice cream at the end. Extra scoops are only $1! Tours get booked up early and only run Monday through Friday. Get there early and no later than lunch otherwise you may not be lucky. Tours were $6 each so not expensive and interesting for kids too.

“Fun Factory Tour”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Great tour and for ice cream lovers (like us) a don't miss. We went on a Wednesday and it was fairly busy so allow time for a delay in start of tour. Of course the bluebonnets are out now which may have been part of the reason for the crowd. It is so hard to pick a flavor for your free sample but lots of ideas on what to try in the future. There is a charge for the tour but they do have discounts for seniors. We didn't buy tickets online due to is a day trip for us and we wanted to go when weather was good and so we had to wait about a hour for tour but we spent time in little general store and the lobby museum.
