From Montreal to Vermont

10 Nov

Nicole and Tara posing at Ben and Jerry's headquarters

After hitting a few more pastry shops….so fantastic….we headed to Vermont. Seriously, could Vermont be any more precious! We first stopped in Burlington to visit Lake Champlain Chocolates. Very nice shop, we sampled a few. Burlington was a very cute town. We then hit the road for Waterbury, Vermont. First we stopped at the Old Cider Mill. What a fun little tourist stop. The place smelled of fantastic baked apple goods! We shopped around, sampled the cider, and purchased several “Vermont Classics” such as maple syrup, apple butter, cider, etc. Fun spot. Then we headed to the Cabot creamery annex. They have many types of cheeses at this store, but they specialize in cheddars. Then it was on to the Ben and Jerry’s headquarters. We stopped in, and happened to arrive just in time for the final tour of the day. We got to see the facility, and how they make all the wonderful Ben and Jerry’s goodies. The tour finished with a quick sampling of the day’s flavor. Always a good treat! It was getting dark, so we headed down the highway to our hotel right on the Vermont/New Hampshire border. Tomorrow, it’s another Vermont cheese creamery then on to NYC!
