Sample a Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Tour in Waterbury, Vt.
The mountains, fall foliage, quaint inns and charming villages are the stuff that Vermont magic is made of, but don’t forget also about checking out a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream tour at Ben and Jerry’s Waterbury Factory in Waterbury, Vt.
You’ll see a company history “moo-vie,” and a tour of the production room to learn about the manufacturing process. After that, it’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for: visiting the “Flavoroom” where guests can try out a flavor of the day! There’s also a gift shop with myriad Ben and Jerry’s merchandise.
I’ve been a few times to this tour and it ranks up there with my other top Vermont vacation memories. Ben and Jerry’s ice cream has a way of doing that, I suppose!
