Say Yes! To M!Ch!Gan!

I'm on vacation with my family in Michigan!
We're on our way to Big Rapids to visit all our friends there. Can't wait to see them!

What's one of the best parts of a road trip? Cracker Barrel! We used to have one not 5 minutes from our house, and we were there almost every week. Then it closed and we still mourn the loss. Whenever we have to drive a long distance we simply must stop for a meal there. Meredith made an amazing discovery in their store:

HAD to buy some! I must say though, they are just not as good as the original. While you still get the same experience of popping chunks of sugar into your mouth and picking paper bits out of your teeth, the flavor is not the same. I think they tried to be too literal with the colors and flavors, and the effort to keep them apart. I always loved how the colors ran together in a sort of gradient, and the flavors would combine as well.

You just can't top a classic, but I would still give these 4 stars.
