We couldn't go to New England and not see the Ben 'n Jerry's manufacturing plant. We took the tour, but sadly they were not making ice cream at this location that day. They showed a film giving the brief background of the founders and their subsequent success, they showed us the plant area and then they took us into the Flav-o Room where BnJ actually developed some of their successful flavors. They gave us samples of the days current NEW flavor: Orange and Creme. It was orange sorbet and vanilla ice cream, tasty...but not one of my personal favorites.
Here is a shot of the cowmobile...it travelled across the country providing free samples of Ben n Jerrys ice cream during the early days

We couldn't resist a picture of us in the Ben and Jerry cutouts...
We then moved on to the flavor graveyard; a place that retired flavors have gone in memoriam.
Each retired flavor had its own memorial tombstone...cute.
Afterwards we went to the scoop shop and had some more heaven. I had a new flavor called macadamia madness, it truly was!
