Ben and Jerry’s response about the factory tour.

Posted by Dave on July 28, 2007

I recently inquired about whether or not it was safe to go on the factory tour in Vermont.

Here is the response I received. 

Thanks for writing. We try to be as safety concious as we can be for folks with allergies on the tour. Nut warnings as well as cross contamination information is available at the tour sampling area, and if you let your guide know about your child’s allergy during the tour the staff can make certain that he/she won’t be or feel left out of ice cream sampling.

Thanks again for writing, and we hope to see you at the factory,

Ben & Jerry’s

Has anyone gone on this tour before, and did you feel they took the appropriate precautions with regard to allergens?
