Ben & Jerry’s Factory

1281 Waterbury-Stowe Rd, Waterbury, 05676, VT

Get the scoop on the whole ice-cream making process from cow to carton at the Ben & Jerry’s factory in nearby Waterbury, Vt. A short slide show tells how Ben and Jerry completed a $5 correspondence course from Penn State University on ice-cream making to become manufacturers of America’s No. 1 ice-cream flavor — chocolate chip cookie dough. Then take a behind the scenes tour of the plant and watch workers churn out ice cream to the beat of rock-and-roll music. If each one of the employees on the tour seems happy, they should be. Every Ben & Jerry’s worker goes home with three free pints of ice cream a day!
