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.

We stopped here on our way home from vacation. It was extremely crowded, but we only waited about a half hour for the tour. Unfortunately, the tour did not show us how the ice cream was made and was very short. We went home disappointed.

It was extremely busy but we managed to get on to a tour. Was very interesting to hear the history and about it being local. Got to try some icecream at the end, great fun.

Even though I am not an ice cream lover, we went to Ben & Jerry Factory Tour. Loved the tour which provided so much history, saw the factory and everyone but me had the free sample of ice cream. Great story

We visited this place too but it was just packed. Roads were icy and lines were long. Didn’t even get on a tour. Would not advise to go in the winter.

Glad we made it before they closed this eve. Ice cream was great... as expected. If in Stowe, then I would recommend you stop in. I tried something different: maple walnut with berry berry extraord. ☺

Nice to know about their history through a short films played during the tour. The tour guide girl is very proud and passionate about Ben and Jerry's and it shows in her articulation with humor. So many varieties of icecream but the Half Baked stands...More

It was our first experience to try out Ben & Jerry's & our two kids enjoyed it. Friendly staff which offered our kids & suggested which flavour they like was very heart warming

We’d avoided doing this typical tourist thing for years but finally succumbed. I admit to enjoying it more than I thought I would but that could have had something to do with the few cocktails I had for lunch. Take the quick your, get a...More

We drove six hours out of the way to visit this but the drive was beautiful and totally worth it. We got to try exclusive flavours, find out the history, pick up some souvenirs and visit the flavour graveyard. I got a huge sundae to...More
