Ben & Jerry's Factory Tour — Once upon a time, in 1978, two regular guys named Ben and Jerry had an idea to sell homemade ice cream out of a renovated Burlington gas station. Their plan was so crazy that it worked — the original $12,005 investment blossomed into a business so successful that it became a subsidiary of Unilever, with plenty of exciting moments along the way. Immerse yourself in the company’s sweet story — and the magic of turning cream and sugar into a delectable cold confection — on a guided tour at Ben & Jerry’s Waterbury factory. Don’t miss the infamous Flavor Graveyard, honoring the terminated tenures of pints past. Economic Crunch, anyone?
