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.

If you haven't visited or heard the story this is a must especially if you have kids. Quick diversion during the day.

This is a fun, short tour of one of their factories. The guide we had was energetic and goofy. They show you a movie, take you to a viewing room over the factory and end with some samples. We were lucky to try a special flavor that was only available at the factory (hot chocolate!). For $4, this tour is worth it. I have only been in the winter, but would love to come back in the summer. Also, the factory is only running Mon - Fri, so if you visit on the weekends you don't actually see them making ice cream.

The tour video was informative and funny - we laughed out loud several times. The tour itself is well-organized and delivered. The tour guide knew his stuff and was funny, too. The best part was the flavoroom where the free samples are. Of course, the kids loved this part and the price of admission was reasonable ($4 for adults/kids under 12 are free). Worthy of a stop while in VT!

We stop here every time on our way to Stowe. I'm pretty sure my kids like this place just as much as the skiing up the road! And the skiing is awesome! Anyway, the factory tour is very cool, and you get free samples at the end. The samples you get are flavors they are still testing, so they haven't been released to the general public yet. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area.

Great 70s music was playing, the flavor grave yard was a hoot. It was an experience - All in all, worth the trip!
