One of the things that we DEFINITELY wanted to do in Vermont was visit the Ben & Jerry’s factory!
Can you see us in this picture? I asked Irving which one was the girl supposed to stand in, and then he told me that we were supposed to be “Ben and Jerry”. hahaha oh well.
MMMmm Look at all the flavors!
We were so excited to do the factory tour!
It was really a tour for kids, but it was fun.
And the best part??! SAMPLES!
The flavor of the day was an organic vanilla with chocolate chips!
As if that wasn’t enough icecream…. we decided to get some more at the scoop shop (when in Rome, right?)
I got three different flavors:
- Half Baked (Chocolate & Vanilla Ice Creams with Fudge Brownies & Gobs of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough)
- Triple Caramel Chunk (Caramel Ice Cream with a Swirl of Caramel & Fudge Covered Caramel Chunks)
- Coconut 7 Layer Bar (Coconut Ice Cream with Coconut & Fudge Flakes, Walnuts and Swirls of Graham Cracker & Butterscotch)
Oh man, SO GOOD!
This is where they steal all their ingredients!
That’s a lot of sugar!
Then we went to see the “Flavor Graveyard” where some of the dead flavors go when they are discontinued.
They all had cute little sayings on them.
With bellies full of ice cream glory, we arrived at our hotel in Stowe. We stayed at the Green Mountain Inn. It was a perfect location, right in downtown Stowe.
It was a quaint little room.
With a walk-in closet!
We headed to the bar and got some beers
And played a few rounds of Trivial Pursuit
Then we ventured out to find some dinner. The town is really walker friendly.
We ate dinner at Pie in the Sky.
I got an amazing eggplant pasta dish.
Look at that cheese!
We loved the walking trails all around
And the art along the way:
I wish we had this in Los Angeles!
It was really hot though. We were a sticky mess!
It was so cute there!
I forced Irving to take this picture. Bahaha!
The next morning, we headed to the “Green Mountain Coffee Cafe”.
It was in an old train depot.
We got some coffee, straight from the source.
