Hole N” The Rock (Moab, Utah)

Ben and Jerry’s Flavor Graveyard (Waterbury, Vermont)
This is really a two for one attraction. First, you can tour the decidedly not weird Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream Factory in Waterbury, Vermont. Next, wander out to the Flavor Graveyard, where you’ll find ‘tombstones’ of the flavors Ben and Jerry have killed off. Sometimes, though, they are resurrected.
