Owner description: 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.

Tour is $4. No production on weekends. I didn't get to see them making ice cream which would have been a lot more interesting. Film at the beginning highlights how responsible the company is with resources and charitable giving. Good size ice cream sample at the end. Tour is 25-30 minutes tops. If you want to look at discontinued flavors, there is is a funny flavor graveyard in the back that they really don't show you. Worth seeing if you are a fan of the ice cream.

Loved the tour and the icecream. Our tourguide was not only informative, but very funny and knew how to capture and audience. I loved every bit of it.

A visit to the Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory is fun once. You should visit during the week when the factory is in production. We happened to visit on the weekend. We each paid our $4.00, saw a few rooms on the tour, and had our free sample. It was fun to visit the gift shop and the grounds, but we could have purchased the same ice cream outside for less money. The tour was fun once, but I probably wouldn't go back again. The $4.00 charge is the most in the area for a factory tour.
