The Ben & Jerry's factory tour shows you where all the flavors come from and how they are combined into the wonder that is Ben & Jerry's ice cream. And they give you samples!

Great tour and I loved visiting the flavor graveyard. I took some time to mourn a few of my favorites that are no longer part of the Ben and Jerry's lineup. It's truly an ice-cream lover's paradise.

It's a bit of a drive (about an hour), but worth the trip for a fun familyg day! The Factory tour featuring Vermont's own Ben and Jerry's Ice cream where you get to see how it's made and even sneak a sample! When done there, I'd head into Stowe and up the Mountain Road, over Smuggler's notch and head back to St. Albans that way. You won't regret it! Lots and Lots of shops and things to do and see- Plan on a full afternoon for sure, and maybe stop for dinner along the way home.

B & J tends to be very crowded in the summer. You can try a short cut by buying ice cream and visiting the ice cream flavors "graveyard" and bypassing the lines for the guided tour. Cabot Creamery has a similar tour -- but much less busy. If you go to Cabot you can also visit Stephen Huenek's Dog Chapel.

The history and tour of the production facilities are interesting, but visiting Ben & Jerry's headquarters is really all about the ice cream. Taste new and old favorites, and hear about possible upcoming flavors. An ice cream lover's heaven!Recommended for:History Buffs

It's a fun place to visit with many sideshow type attractions. But we opted out of the factory tour (which costs money) to visit the flavor grave yard. It's full of whimsical limericks describing the demise of many experimental flavors. Sorry did not find Schweddy Balls anywhere on the premises.
