Triple Caramel Crunch was the flavor of the day when we toured Ben and Jerry’s in Waterbury, VT. What a fun tour! There were cow puns galore and a short but humorous “moovie” of how the company got started. We could see the workers and machines processing one of the two flavors of the day. And, of course, got our sample cup.
You can either purchase a regular ticket for the tour at $3/adult or $2/senior or the $20 package which includes tour, tshirt and a coupon for a free pint of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. Kids are slightly less and tours are free for those 12 and under.
Of course there is the gift shop and a place to purchase cones and shakes made from the other flavors. George had Creamy Broulee (delicious) and I had Coffee, Coffee, Buzz, Buzz. When we later visited the flavor graveyard, we found one for Coffee, Coffee. Apparently it has been resurrected!

The tour is lots of fun so if you are in Vermont, be sure to add that to your itinerary. Jaimie
Jaimie is absolutely correct!! We visited there October 2006. It was great. Only took about an hour, but it was fun. Of course, I couldn’t resist buying some reinforcement on our out. Our dog, who waited in the car loved his share of my ice cream. Great place.
