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.

We went on the weekend and got there first thing when it opened. We were in about 2 minutes. Short fun tour and cheap too. The only downfall of going on the weekend is the factory workers are not working which in my opinion would be cool to see the factory in motion. All the workers were friendly and the ice cream sample and the end of the tour was yummy. The grave yard was the best part...super funny.

This tour was not very interesting and consisted of a brief film, standing on a glass-enclosed mezzanine while a guide gave some very brief info about what was happening below us, and a sample of ice cream. There were way too many people on the tour -- some had to stand for the film and many could not get near the glass window to view the factory floor below.

Definitely stop by here to visit the "Scoop Shop" and get some ice cream....but you can certainly skip the tour.

Usually pretty crowded. The line for ice cream was around the corner (same exact ice cream you can get across the continental US at any B&J store). We waited 25 mins for a couple scoops.

The tour is very brief. You spend 6-7 minutes watching a video about the history of Ben & Jerrys and then get shuttled into a factory observation area. It's quite a small factory so there's only so much to look at. The last part of the tour involves getting free ice cream at the tasting area (best part).

The flavor graveyard is interesting to check out, but so very small! They definitely don't have all the discontinued flavors there. I was kinda bummed and was hoping to se my favorite flavor from years back.

Probably worth it to stop here once in your life, but don't expect this place to knock your socks off.

The tour was amazing, and for as cheap as it is, I recommend everyone come and check this out at least once.

The tour and talk at the factory was not bad. Especially if one has not worked with dairy products before. The cost for a scoop of their ice cream is way to expensive after paying an admission fee. Could have been a much better site if the order taker takers asked if you wanted a sample or a cup. Not worth going back
