Where are we going today?

The thing we love about ice-cream is picking what flavor to have, and we know at Ben & Jerry's there are often far too many flavors to pick from! Imagine the trouble you will have then at the Ben & Jerry's Factory Tour where you are surrounded by them all!

The Ben & Jerry's Factory Tours aren't all about eating though. It's actually an educational, and pretty fascinating experience! Join their 30 minute tours which are treat for all ages.  If you ever wanted to know how those amazing flavors are created and end up in those little tubs for you to enjoy, then this tour is for you!

The tours will give you an insight into the entire ice cream manufacturing process, and also you find out how the company itself incorporate their values into every decision they make, which ultimately drives their business.

Then - at the end of the tour you are in ice cream heaven because it's ice cream flavor choosing time! Are you going to try your favorite flavor, or a completely new one (and one that you may not have heard of - like Vermonster! Any ideas what that is?)

If you can't decide they have some pretty awesome "scoopers" there who can give you there advise, or offer you those samples you love to try and make your mind up.

Want something a little different? Try the Umiak Snowshoe & Ice Cream Too Tour! This 45 minute tour is unique, because it takes you our on snowshoes into the woodlands behind the factory itself! You see the very sad flavor graveyard, where they pay tribute to all the dearly parted flavors that are no longer with us. A moment of silence if you will....

A unique family day out experience that ends in ice cream - what more could you want!

    Took me at least ten minutes to choose a flavour but the scoopers were patient, friendly and helpful (and even gave me tasters of the flavours to help me decide what to have in my core sundae!) I almost left with a milkshake too, but will save that for next time. Which flavours to have it that though. hmm. yummy!
