  • Super easy access to and from Highway 30. Ample parking for today's visit as well. Great history lesson on the brand. Building was tidy and being actively cleaned. All the exhibits and activities were operational. The building flowed well, with clear delineation between sections. The highlight of the trip is obviously the selection of complimentary I've tastings. All varieties were in stock today with clear allergy markings on display. Overall a great experience for a once or twice a year visit.
  • It's very nice that you get to learn about ice cream and how to make it, however, the ice cream that they allow to sample wasn't as great as I thought it would be. I also wish I could learn more about the company & the family. The taste testing area, making your own ice cream, and advertising your ice cream is really cool & and we had a ball during the production of our commercials. This was my favorite part. It is worth the money, but the taste testing at the very end of the tour I'm not very fond of.
