    First to Review

    Honestly this isnt that big of a tour... but it is fun for the lil ones... my daughters favorite part was the flavor graveyard. So be warned there are sometimes Ice Cream ghosts as some flavors return from the graveyard! While we were just here they had returned a flavor from the graveyard to sell again too.

    The tour gives you a short informative video about the company's history, volunteerism, and ice cream making process. You then get to view the two production lines in the building that are side by side where they are making pints. After this portion, you are brought down to Ben & Jerry's original test kitchen (for this facility) for a sample scoop.

    Pro Tip: Free entry for an adult with yelp check in!

    The original sample scoop sign was for broccoli cheese. Yes this was an actual flavor once, on an April fools day tour... no foolen! They said it tasted terrible. I think I would have to agree without even having seen or tasting it. Our flavor was raspberry chocolate chip with raspberry bursts inside the chocolate chips. Neither my daughter nor I was that into this flavor.

    Pro Tip #2: This place is literally in the middle of NOWHERE! But it was fun for my daughter and made her happy, so even if it was on the edge of being in Canada eh, it was worth going.

    We also got a fresh scoop apiece to grub while we were in the car on the way back to civilization. They had a swag store there as well with lots of typical tourist objects that most people grabbed one or three of. I laughed at a half sheet ice cream cake that they had for sale in the 85+ degree heat and wondered how anyone would buy it when it would be fully melted by the time they made it anywhere.

    I am sure I wont be back though. It is just too far off the beaten path. But it is definitely something that you should do once, if you have a little one or are some kind of Ben & Jerry fanatics. Otherwise, yeah I would skip it.
