|About these ratings|
Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream Factory churns out delicious Chunky Monkey and Bonnaroo Buzz in the nearby town of Waterbury. Visitors are invited to watch the sweet treat being made on a factory tour; which as everyone knows (or at least, you hope) leads to free samples.
Reviews of the brief tour are mixed, however. One TripAdvisor user writes, "Like the rest of the 1-2 star reviews [say, it's a] short tour, you're paying for a PR spiel, you get a small cup of the latest flavor they're trying to pimp." But another TripAdvisor user says that the factory is "a great stop with or without kids. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and tasting."
You'll find the Ben & Jerry's Factory in Waterbury, about 10 miles south of Stowe on VT Route 100. Admission is $3 for adults, $2 for seniors and free for kids younger than age 12. The 30-minute tours are offered daily, year-round with varying hours depending on the season. Check out the factory's website for more information.
