July 11 was our first day in Vermont. While there we went on several tours including tours of a cider mill, a coffee shop, and Ben & Jerry’s.
After following our tour guide through the factory, when we learned exactly how Vermont’s finest comes to be, we were provided the opportunity to sample Ben & Jerry’s Cherry Garcia. Once this flavor was added to our mental favorites list, we exited the building and hiked up to the Flavor Graveyard.
This cemetery is the place where a memorial is set up for each unsuccessful flavor of ice-cream that Ben & Jerry have created. It was bittersweet as we walked around reading each gravestone. Surprisingly, we did come across some deceased flavors which sounded pretty good like Fresh Georgia Peach and Chocolate Comfort. Yum! 😋
On our way back to the van, we stopped at a little tent where free spin art was being advertised. Each member of my family created one and was quite pleased with the results. After taking pictures with the ice-cream lid and Ben & Jerry’s van, we returned to our own vehicle.
Next stop, Canada!
