to like all of the flavors except Mint Oreo.

be aware that one of the perks of working there is that each employee
gets three pints of ice cream a day.

an ice cream lover, Waterbury is the place to go. Ben and Jerry’s
got their start in Vermont and Waterbury is the site of their factory. Take
a tour and don’t miss their flavor graveyard.
Shelburne Museum in the town of the same name. It contains the
many purchases of a Miss Electra Havemeyer. Her multi millionaire
father (who was the founder of Domino Sugar) left her enough money
to play for the rest of her life. She was a shoppers shopper. One
of her best acquisitions was the Ticonderoga which

220 ft long, weighing 892 tons. If you have the time and want
to see everything from boats to buildings and even a complete 1950’s
kitchen, by all means do go.
