Ben & Jerry’s is a place that can stir excitement in the hearts, souls, and mouths of the very young to the very old. If you’re an ice cream aficionado, then this is the place to be. From the beginning, Ben and Jerry had it right when it came to their ice cream business – quality ingredients and a work ethic that led to success.

In the beginning, there was a renovated gas station…

The tour begins with an entertaining and educational video that’s the perfect length. It touches on the highlights of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream career and demonstrates how they thought outside the ice cream box when they established their business.

Takin’ it to the road…

An ice cream road trip!

The next part of the tour took us into the inner workings of the ice cream factory. Shhh, it’s a secret! From there we went to the tasting room. The ice cream of the day was chocolate chip, caramel swirl! Yummy! It really didn’t matter what flavor it was because you can’t go wrong with any flavor of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. There’s a great story behind this successful business. If you ever have a chance to tour the factory, take advantage of it. It’s a tasty treat!
